Allergy

An allergy happens when your immune system mistakes a normal, harmless substance for something that can cause illness. Your body then has an allergic reaction to this harmless substance—called an allergen.

Autoimmune

An autoimmune disease is a disorder in which the body is attacking itself. Normally, white blood cells produce antibodies that attack harmful cells as they appear in the body. The opposite happens in autoimmune diseases. Antibodies attack healthy tissues instead of the harmful ones.

This causes many different symptoms that affect the joints, internal organs, and skin.

Your skin is your largest organ because it covers your entire body. It’s also one of the first features others notice about you.

Because your skin acts as your outer protective layer, covering your organs, your skin is exposed to the environment. This makes your skin vulnerable to growths, rashes, discoloration, cysts, burns, injuries, infections, and other disorders.

Mohs surgery is a way for surgeons to remove cancerous layers of skin from your face, ears, hands, and feet. Mohs surgery is a state-of-the-art procedure that carefully removes cancerous skin cells layer by layer.

Most skin cancer surgeries remove both cancerous cells and healthy cells at the same time. But Mohs surgery uses a precise technique that lets surgeons avoid removing healthy skin.
