Rashes & Skin Allergy Testing

If you have ever experienced a red, itchy, or dry patch on your skin, you may have had eczema or another form of dermatitis. Dermatitis is a wide-range term for “inflammation of the skin.” Whereas some disorders that fall in this category can be readily diagnosed and treated, others are more complex and require additional tests.

Eczema is a type of rash that falls under the dermatitis category, and is often interchangeable with the diagnosis “atopic dermatitis.” Symptoms of eczema can be correlated with other medical conditions to form the “atopic triad” including eczema, asthma, and allergies. However, if a rash is unresponsive to initial treatments for eczema, allergy patch testing may be considered to determine if symptoms are linked to a specific chemical or personal care product.

At Bellevue’s Dermatology Arts, we create personal regimens to effectively treat most medical skin conditions including eczema and dermatitis. Our office’s allergy patch testing services are lead by Dermatology Certified Nurse Practitioner Liz Schuringa, ARNP.

Love is in the air! We really do have the best team at Dermatology Arts!

Dear Patients, I’m not much of a blogger, but I was looking through February’s confidential patient reviews that we routinely receive through our practice management system as part of our quality program. I sent a note to our entire team via email just now, and thought the results so important that I should share them with both current and prospective patients. Read my heartfelt thanks to our team below, and let me share my thanks to our patients for their gracious feedback. Dr. Master

Dearest team!
Hope you are all well. Just thought I’d share with you on this last day of February while love is still very much in the air that our practice achieved an average review of 4.94 out of five stars over the last month with approximately 100 patients submitting reviews through AMD.  Liz had all 5 star reviews.  Dr. C and I are just behind her!

Way to go everyone!  Mitch and I are working on approaches to get these reviews instead on third party site (Google, Yelp, Facebook).

A heartfelt thanks with great appreciation for the extraordinary efforts and execution on everyone’s parts.  Have I mentioned to any of you that I really like working here?

Dermatology Arts' Liz Schuringa ARNP, is now Dermatology-Certified! Congratulations!

We are very excited to announce today that our own Liz Schuringa, ARNP has just become a Dermatology Certified Nurse Practitioner. Following approximately a decade in primary care, she transitioned to dermatology in 2017. She spent hundreds of hours studying (must have seemed like thousands to her!) and preparing for one of the most comprehensive tests available to Nurse Practitioners. Not only did she pass the exam, word on the street is that she ranks in the top 10% of test takers! Way to go!

Among many specialities within dermatology, Liz has cultivated an interest in acne for teens and adults and particularly adult female acne, and additionally leading our patch testing program for common skin allergens.
