Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
On July 4, 2013, host Tanya Mack of The Doctors Roundtable on BusinessRadioX® sat down with Dr. Ashley Curtis to discuss preventative measures and treatments for summer skin problems.
Dr. Ashley Curtis received her medical training at the Medical College of Georgia. She completed the Dermatology Residency program at Wake Forest University, and is now in private practice with Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
Dr. Curtis explained that during the summer, intense sunlight, humidity, poisonous plants and biting insects can create problems with the skin. Summertime means more time outdoors, but preparing for the sun with greater thought and planning is worth the prevention to make this outdoor time of year more pleasant. The lack of preventive efforts can allow ultraviolet (UV) rays with sun exposure to leave skin problems such as sagging, wrinkles, burns, rashes and uneven pigmentation.
According to Curtis, "Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Approximately 1 in 5 Americans will have it in their lifetime and it is 99% treatable if found early." She went on to say, "It’s important we are aware of heat rash, bug bites, rosacea flare ups, increased acne, excessive sweating and sun exposure considering they are the leading contributors to skin cancer, all of which are greater health concerns during the summer."
"There are many preventive measures and treatments that can help our skin health blossom during the summer time when lifestyles are more focused on the outdoors," said Curtis. To learn more about these measures and treatments, tune in to this episode of The Doctors Roundtable.
