What is a Dermatologist?

A Dermatologist is a medically qualified doctor who has then chosen to spend several years training specifically in dermatology. 

Dermatology involves the study, research, and diagnosis of normal and disorders, diseases, cancers, cosmetic and aging conditions of the skin, fat, hair, nails and oral and genital membranes, and the management of these by different investigations and therapies, including but not limited to Dermatohistopathology.

What do Dermatologists do?

Dermatologists perform skin surgery in many situations:

To prevent or provide early control of disease, eg remove skin cancer.
To improve the skin’s appearance by removing growths, discolorations, or damage caused by aging, sunlight, or disease.
To establish a definite diagnosis (biopsy)

Skin Disease

The skin is the largest and most visible organ of the body. It reflects the health of the body and acts as a barrier against injury and bacteria.

Unfortunately, at one time or another, nearly everyone has some type of skin disease – infants, children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly.

One in six (15%) of all visits to the family doctor (GP) involves a skin problem.
