Treasure Coast Dermatology Founder -Tim Ioannides

Tim Ioannides is the founder of a multi-location Treasure Coast Dermatology. After completing his medical degree from the University Of Miami School Of Medicine, he realized the importance of medical dermatology. He did his medical internship at the University Of Florida School Of Medicine and was later employed by a plastic surgeon where he conducted most cosmetic procedures himself. Tim Ioannides wanted to move away from cosmetically driven worries of patients and provide the highest level of care, thus opening Treasure Coast Dermatology. He recently explained how vitamin D could help calm skin conditions.

Loannides being a dermatologist, has seen several types of skin conditions. However, some of the common ones include eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis. Eczema causes itchy, red and irritated skin while psoriasis leads to thick and bumpy patches on the skin. With rosacea, there would be pimples and redness in the skin. Atopic dermatitis has several symptoms, including swollen skin, cracked skin, itchy, and redness.

Vitamin D or Sunshine vitamin is an important vitamin for skin conditions. It’s also important for teeth and bones. Sources of vitamin D mostly are the foods we eat as the body produces it when sunlight hits the skin. However, some people cannot produce enough vitamin D since they could be overweight, not enough exposure to sunlight, they are older, using sunscreen often or they could be eating foods not rich in vitamin D. Some foods rich in this kind of vitamin include ham, orange juice, yogurt, mushrooms, fortified cereals, and salmon.

Feeling tired a lot, getting sick frequently, back pain, depression, hair loss, and slow healing wounds are some of the common signs that someone is not having enough vitamin D in his/her body. Loannides recommends that people should take foods rich in vitamin D and also get enough exposure to sunlight, at least 15 to 20 minutes every day. 10,000IU per of vitamin D3 per day is what people with skin conditions should take in order to improve their condition.
