Skin Rashes
Stafford Skincare is a private dermatology clinic held by Dr. Anne Ward, an experienced consultant dermatologist. All skin, hair and nail conditions can be treated, in both adults and children. Common skin diseases seen in the clinic include acne, allergies, drug reactions, eczema, Hair loss, psoriasis, rosacea and urticaria. Isotretinoin (Roaccutane)
is available on private prescription for acne that is not responding to standard treatment or where there is acne scarring of the skin.

Reduction in Facial Flushing in Rosacea

In addition to being seen quicker, a private dermatology appointment means that there are no NHS funding restrictions, so conditions such as acne scarring, facial flushing and pigmentation can also be treated.

Chronic Hand Eczema, Urticaria


Sometimes further investigations are necessary to determine the cause of the skin problem. The waiting times for Patch Testing and Skin Biopsies are typically 1 – 2 weeks at Stafford Skincare, meaning treatments can be started sooner, once the diagnosis is made.

Patch Testing is used to investigate whether a skin rash is due to an allergy (contact allergic dermatitis). Patches containing possible skin allergens are applied to the upper back, and the results are read after 48 and 96 hours. It is recommended for people with stubborn eczema that is not responding to treatment, chronic hand eczemas or unusual patterns of eczemas.

Dr. Anne Ward is a member of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI).

Patch Testing and Skin Prick Testing for suspected skin allergies

Skin Biopsy is where a small sample of skin is taken after the area is numbed with a local anaesthetic injection. The sample is sent for analysis and so helps to diagnose the skin problem.
