There are several skin conditions that may affect the mouth and sometimes other mucosal sites that can be difficult to diagnose and treat as they fall between specialist areas. There are many more conditions that have a predilection for the mouth and often patients will seek help from their dentists initially.
In the Skin Health & Allergy centre we have clinicians with dual training in dermatology and oral medicine who are able to provide advice, investigate and treat many of these conditions. Where appropriate we also refer to our colleagues in ENT, digestive health, ophthalmology or women’s health providing a multidisciplinary approach to care.
