Hyperkeratosis: Internet Research

Hyperkeratosis, believe it or not, has a big following on the Internet, if you were to look at Google, and all of the sources pointed to that offer good information. With so much information available, here are some suggestions to help your search for information.

First and foremost, you’ll probably find that WebMD is an excellent source of information about hyperkeratosis. Indeed, it is probably one of the leading sources of information about not only hyperkeratosis, but also other forms of keratosis.  You will also find that WebMD will refer you to other sites where you can find more specialized information.

Google, itself, is a key source in your search for information on hyperkeratosis.  Indeed, you will find pointers not only to the already mentioned WebMD, but also various medical schools and associations where the information you seek is available. And, if the keyword choice is right, you may even find there is a dermatological practice near your home where you can get expert information and assistance.

The Internet will also point you to various health plan sites that offer pointers to information and specialists in this problem while it will also offer you graphic examples of the types of hyperkeratosis or keratosis that are problems.

Use the Internet liberally in your search and don’t forget that a graphic is worth thousands of words so if a site offers good graphics of the various type of hyperkeratosis or any of its related problems then you have found a right source of information right there.

Even AOL and its search engine, as well as the improved Ask search engine will provide you with more than enough information about hyperkeratosis.

One thing to remember, though, is that though you have all of this information available, you are not a physician – unless you are of course, then, this doesn’t apply – and because you are not a physician or specialist the information you glean from the Internet is just a resource. You must see a health professional to make any determinations. Never try to self-diagnose because, for the most part, the only thing you may be doing is raising your blood pressure needlessly because, as is always the way with such things, we tend to overdramatize our own conditions. For example, if you see a picture that looks like something that is on your body but is actually far different, the normal reaction is to assume that you have it and unless you have the diagnostic equipment and knowledge to make that determination, the only thing you may be doing is upsetting yourself needlessly.
