First things first.

Don’t Fry Day has nothing against McDonald’s.

Now that we’ve got that straight, why is this Friday (May 22) Don’t Fry Day?


May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month across the United States. And though it’s nice that a month has been set aside for such an initiative, we all really aught to be taking a more conscious approach to making sure we’re not suffering from such disease. Early intervention is key, and is the recipe for cure. When found early, skin cancer is a very curable entity.

The American Academy of Dermatology has coined the first Monday of May as Melanoma Monday – a day set aside solely for the awareness and education of the deadliest form of skin cancer. So here we are, quickly approaching May 4th: The first Monday in May. Be sure to set aside some time and give yourself a visual exam. Check out those moles. Make sure nothing curious has developed on your skin that you haven’t noticed before.


Coinciding with Melanoma Awareness Month, Dermatology and Skin Health will be offering skin cancer screenings, free of charge, on May 4 and May 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Frisbee Memorial Hospital in Rochester and Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover. Call for your 5 minute appointment -  603-740-2818.


Frances Furbish is not only a good witch (see her photo for proof) and a team player (see her other photo for proof), but she’s the billing manager/bookkeeper for Dermatology & Skin Health. The Eliot, Maine resident started working as a contractor for DSH in September 2004 and in January 2010, she joined the DSH staff full-time.


There are two things you need to know. The first thing is this: Spring is coming. It’s time to get back outside on the trails and enjoying the idea of ridding yourself of that irritating cabin fever. In anticipation of brighter, warmer days, we want to make sure you’re protecting your skin – because let’s face it, without skin, what would life be like? It’s not something you really want to find out.

We’re so excited about our upcoming Martinis for Melanoma event. It’s the second annual. Last year we sold out in advance and the night was an absolute blast.

This year we’re raising funds to benefit the newly launched non-profit, Make Big Change. Are unfamiliar with Make Big Change?

So please, join us. Help us make big change, and let’s once again enjoy a great evening supporting a great cause.

If you've see a new face in the offices of Dermatology and Skin Health, it's Abby Niziol. She's been soaking up knowledge from Niki Bryn, Dermatology Certified Nurse Practitioner. We're happy to have her (and glad to hear she's a fan of the Garrison City). Read on to discover a little more about the Boston College student.


With another major winter storm on the radar, it is almost certain that this month will hit the record books as the snowiest in New England history. As thousands head outside this holiday weekend to ski, sled, snowmobile, or simply just shovel out, we at Dermatology would like to take a few moments to send a friendly reminder about the importance of winter UV protection.


Not everyone who works at Dermatology and Skin Health lives and breathes healthcare. In fact, one man who has been working with the practice even before (gasp!) its inception is technology-wizard Justin Mayrand.


Dermatology and Skin Health feels very strongly in protecting people from ultraviolet radiation -- be those rays from the sun, or from tanning beds. As well they should. After all located in Dover, N.H., Dermatology and Skin Health provides care and treatment for conditions of the skin, hair and nails for patients of all ages.


If you have hand eczema (or hand dermatitis), then you know that one of the more painful things you can experience -- especially during wintertime -- is cracks or fissures on top of it all.

They say the best way to prevent cracked and painful dry hands is to prevent the eczema they formed on top of.
