The skin is actually a complete body system which functions either normally or abnormally. The skin system is also interrelated to other body systems, such as the immune system, the endocrine system, etc., and can often reflect dysfunction of one of these systems. The skin is the body system most intimately exposed to the environment. Therefore, the environment can have a great effect upon the health of the skin. Environmental causative agents for skin problems include parasites, food allergies, contact allergies, and inhalant allergens, all of which can cause extreme reactions in the skin.
We provide skin scraping to check and diagnose ectoparasites. Skin cytology for different bacterial, fungal or yeast skin infection diagnosis. Skin culture for fungal such as ringworm diagnosis. Blood allergy testing for diaganosis of different type of allergen that causes chronic skin allergy. Endocrine related skin disesase diagnosis.
