What Are Dermal Lesions?

The term “dermal lesions” might sound a bit frightening, but it actually describes a wide range of skin conditions, not all of which are medically threatening. Simply put, the term “dermal lesion” just refers to a change in the normal, resting condition of your skin. A dermal lesion, for example, can be anything from an open sore to a birthmark. They come in all shapes and sizes, and can frequently be totally benign.

Here are a few examples of dermal lesions:

  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Acne sores
  • Moles
  • Pustules
  • Nodules

What Causes Dermal Lesions?

The cause of dermal lesions can be somewhat tricky to determine, as there are so many different types of dermal lesions, each one having its own unique source. For the most part, dermal lesions can be divided into two distinct categories. Primary dermal lesions refer to a dermal lesion that is in its original state. Once a dermal lesion progresses into a new state, however—this can be as a result of the condition worsening on its own, or as a result of something like scratching, for example—it is known as a secondary lesion.

Dermal lesions can be present from birth, like freckles or a birthmark, simply due to your genetic inheritance. Other dermal lesions can appear later in life, for any number of reasons. These are referred to as acquired dermal lesions. Dermal lesions can be hard or soft to the touch, can be fluid-filled, and can take on a number of other qualities. Determining the type and cause of your dermal lesion can be tough, which is why we recommend visiting a professional. The team at The Dermatology Center can help you find the relief you deserve.

Treating Dermal Lesions

Since dermal lesions can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and forms, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Your dermal lesion treatment will be tailored directly to your needs, taking two important factors into account: The exact nature and cause of your lesion, and the unique characteristics of your skin. Together, these two factors will help us determine the right course of action. To learn more about the dermal lesion treatments we offer, or to set up your initial consultation and begin exploring your options, reach out to our Fredericksburg location and set up your consultation with a member of our team today.
