When he arrived in Arizona fresh from completing his residency in Cleveland in 2002, Dr. Richard L. Averitte Jr. intended to focus his new practice on general dermatology and aesthetics. But recognizing an unforeseen and unfortunate trend offered a detour from which his Affiliated Dermatology has thrived and secured a solid niche.

Happy Patients

I was referred to Affiliated Dermatology by my primary care physician and I’m so happy he did. The scheduling process was easy and I didn’t have a long wait to get in for an appointment, which I appreciated since my schedule limits my free time. No one wants to go to the doctor but if I need a dermatologist again my first call will be to Affiliated Dermatology.

Saw Dr Lam for possible basal cell carcinoma on my face and chest.  He did a whole body scan and found a few questionable spots which were sampled and sent out for testing.  I loved Dr. Lam.  It’s uncomfortable to be naked and have someone look over your whole body with a magnifying glass, but he made it as comfortable as it could possibly get.  Wait time was very short, the entire staff was friendly, and the place was clean!  Dr. Lam was knowledgeable and compassionate.  They also do MOHS at this location if you have skin cancer.  I would definitely go back here again for all my skin cancer needs.

AffDerm's very own #supermom Christine Lin, MD shares some #tips on how parents can personally treat their kids' skin issues that stem from sun exposure and beach or pool time 😎
"I always make sure I pack a wide-brim hat for my 5-year-old son. He enjoys pool time wearing an SPF-50 rash guard. I bring plenty of sunscreen containing zinc oxide and re-apply sunscreen at least every 90 minutes to ensure continued protection from UV ray exposure. I treat his skin irritations with Aquaphor ointment, which soothes and heals without causing any burning sensation. Mild sunburn can be treated immediately with over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to minimize the risk of blistering." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Read this #ResidentTip from Dr. Manway about how to choose the ideal moisturizer:
"The ideal moisturizer is a product that effectively maintains and restores the skin barrier without leaving an unpleasant film or texture on the skin. Speed of absorption is important for many patients as greasy, thick products are universally less favored, but a general rule is that the thicker and greasier a given moisturizer is, the more effective it will be. Likewise, a product that comes in a jar or tub will perform better than one that comes in a pump dispenser. Specific ingredients such as ceramides, petrolatum, or urea are preferred, and in this provider’s experience, the fewer the ingredients, the less opportunity for potential allergen or sensitization. Many patients with eczema or chronic dry skin will have a greater likelihood for sensitivity or contact allergy, so fragrant oils and similar products are discouraged. Severely chronic, dry skin may require the addition of ingredients such as lactic acid to help remove overlying scale and crust. Conversely, different areas of the body such as the face may require lighter preparations such as lotions to avoid occlusion of pores and hair follicles. Concerning daily moisturizers, those that contain SPF greater than 30 can be very effective at not only meeting moisturization needs but also sun protection."
