Areas of professional development:
Priority areas in clinical practice:
“Most often I treat allergic dermatitis: atopic dermatitis, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, acne in adolescents, allopecia (hair loss) and fungal skin diseases.”
“Condition of the environment is the primary cause of allergic dermatosis. Genetics also contributes but unfortunately we can’t fight genetics in any way. As for the environment, a person should care for skin and this is the basic prevention. Talking about fungal bacterial infections, they may be prevented by hygiene and by strengthening children's immunity. "
Trends in dermatology
“Advanced methods n dermatology include treatment of allergic dermatoses and chronic dermatoses (such as eczema, psoriasis) with phototherapy. It treats long-term allergic dermatoses on the skin not with hormonal drugs, but with calcineurin inhibitor agents. Before hormones were prescribed to everyone.”
Specifics of working with patients
“Kids are grateful patients. With the right treatment, they can be cured quickly enough, and there is a chance that the disease will not progess into long-term chronic form.”
“I recommend to all patients not to self-medicate. A skin rash for 2-3 days, which does not dissolve, pustules, rashes with intense itching and fever are loud signals that it is time to visit a doctor.”
“A good doctor must be humane. He should not be a businessman, but, first of all, interested in the patient. ”
“I like skiing, fishing, climbing, hiking somewhere in nature. I spend my free time with children. ”.
