What is New at Klein Dermatology & Associates? Babies!

Our latest wonderful news is that nurse Leslee has had her 2nd daughter, Allison Marie, and is now back to work and helping us out. She does a lot of behind the scenes work in relation to prior authorization letters and requests, billing, administrative work, CoolSculpting, and helping with medical dermatology patients.

Ashley, who is a receptionist and an M.A. at our office had her little boy Thorin James, just a couple weeks ago. Normally you might see her super friendly face at the front desk helping patients, but we expect she will be out a few more weeks with her little one. We are happy to report that both babies are healthy and doing well.

Do you want pretty feet for summer?

The best way to soften feet with lots of callouses and thick skin is to use a Urea cream. This 40% strength has been Rx for as long as I can remember, and now you can get it over the counter without a prescription for only about $10 at some drugstores. The method is to apply cream at night to heels and rough areas before bed, put on socks. In the morning shower, or soak feet in water, then use a good tool to pumice off all that dead skin that the cream softened up. If you have ugly toenails, then you could get started right away on something to treat fungus like Lamisil pills or a topical such as Jublia or Lamisil.

SPF Clothing

The easiest way to protect you and your loved one’s skin is to use special clothing with added sun protection. You can find these type of clothes at many places, for example Land’s End, Athleta, Coolibar and Patagonia. Regular shirts don’t do an adequate job of protecting the skin, because they only filter at a level of about 5. Try getting SPF 50 or SPF 100 clothing for better protection to prevent skin cancer! Get your skin checked once a year to screen for melanoma and other skin cancers.
