Do you suffer from recurrent cases of itchy poison ivy? Please call Dr. Signore's dermatology office at (708) 429-2992 to schedule an appointment to see whether homeopathic medicine could be of benefit to try to PREVENT poison ivy BEFORE your next outbreak!
For the last nine years, our office has been using natural homeopathic medicine to help our patients PREVENT cases of poison ivy. The homeopathic medicine is taken as a single dose by mouth once a month during poison ivy season (which in the Chicago area is from around March through October). Most of our patients report this method is helpful for preventing outbreaks of poison ivy dermatitis. Occasionally, patients report that they still get poison ivy with this method, but it is less severe. This poison ivy prevention method is best for people who frequently get poison ivy dermatitis despite trying to avoid it (eg. landscapers, gardeners, hikers, electric company linemen, etc.) It is very safe and easy to take. But just to be on the safe side, we do not prescribe it for women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
Call Dr. Signore's office at (708) 429-2992 if you would like to schedule an appointment. (Please mention: "POISON IVY PREVENTION" for the reason for the visit.)
This is what POISON IVY looks like! ("Leaves of three - let it be!") Each year, many people become allergic to poison ivy by coming in contact with it. Unfortunately, a lot of people cannot avoid poison ivy (eg. gardeners, landscapers, hikers, construction workers, scout leaders, and electric linemen). They suffer each year from severe itchy blistering eruptions which occur after touching the poison ivy plant. Even with protective clothing and topical Ivy Block, many people still break out from poison ivy. Some of these people actually have to quit their jobs because of poison ivy sensitivity! This is why Dr. Signore's office has looked to homeopathic medicine to help prevent some of this suffering from the poison ivy plant. (See written description on left).

At Dr. Signore's office, we provide quality individualized dermatological care in a personal, friendly, and unhurried environment. When you schedule a dermatology appointment at our office, you will always see the doctor himself.
Our private practice solo dermatology practice opened in TinleyPark, Illinois in 1992. Dr. Robert J. Signore specializes in diseases and surgery of the skin, hair, and nails. We treat babies, infants, children, and adult patients, including adolescents and senior citizens.
Dr. Signore is board-certified in dermatology by the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology. Prior to completing his dermatology residency, Dr. Signore also successfully completed an allopathic family medicine residency.
Dr. Signore is a conventionally trained dermatologist. He treats patients with acne, warts, eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer, moles, hyperhidrosis, and many other skin conditions and diseases. Our office provides broadband ultraviolet-B (UVB) phototherapy for psoriasis.
We also provide Candida albicans allergenic extract intralesional injection immunotherapy for common and plantar warts. Our dermatology office was one of the first to publish a clinical study on the use of Candida immunotherapy for the treatment of recalcitrant warts.
In addition to conventional therapy, Dr. Signore has integrated classical homeopathicmedicine into his dermatology practice. Homeopathic medicine is a form of natural complementary medicine (integrative medicine) which can be helpful in the treatment of acne (pimples), eczema, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), warts, and other common skin conditions. It may also be helpful for patients who wish to avoid the use of antibiotics or steroids when possible. This gentle form of natural wholistic medicine can also be tried when conventional dermatology methods have been unsuccessful. Our dermatology therapy is individualized to the patient, who may choose either conventional dermatology or natural classical homeopathic treatment.
Our office is conveniently located in the Tinley Center at 17730 S. Oak Park Avenue, Suite C. We are located on the west side of Oak Park Avenue, just south of the Tinley Park roller rink.
