Scalp Conditions

Part of the dermatologist’s work is diagnosing and treating scalp disorders and Dr David Fenton has run a specialist service for scalp conditions for the past thirty years. Common skin conditions such as psoriasis, dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis and eczema can all affect the skin on the scalp. They can cause itching, flaking or scaling. Fungal infections can also develop on the scalp.

Certain skin conditions may also cause hair loss, some due to the hair follicle being attacked and destroyed, resulting in a scarring alopecia. It may be necessary to perform a skin biopsy of the scalp to diagnose the problem.

Dr David Fenton carries out a thorough physical examination and any necessary testing before providing you with a bespoke treatment programme.

“I am so grateful to Dr Fenton’s gentle ministering and I am so glad to say that with his help my hair has totally grown back now. Although not life-threatening, alopecia was disheartening and I was so pleased to be able to come and see Dr Fenton and be treated so successfully. It is amazing the quackery and suggestions that are out there! I am very lucky.”
