What is Dermatology?
Dermatology is the medical speciality responsible for diagnosing and treating diseases affecting the skin, hair and nails. Dermatologists use a range of medical procedures to manage issues affecting these areas. They can also address cosmetic issues, helping revitalise the skin’s appearance.
Medications and non-invasive therapies can treat many skin conditions, while others require a minor ops or surgical approach
The most common Dermatological conditions are:
Atopic Dermatitis/skin cancer
Blisters on the skin
Contact dermatitis (skin irritationc caused by exposure to an allergen)
Cutaneous lupus erythematous (skin disease that affects many organs in the body)
Cysts, lumps & bumps
Erythroderma (redness of the skin)
Folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles)
Hidradentis suppurativa (recurring abscesses in apocrine glands of armpits or groin, which can cause scarring and disfigurement)
Psoriasis (chronic autoimmune disease affecting skin cells that produce too much keratin causing red patches on skin that may be painful if scratched, itchy or sore when rubbed against clothing; often occurs on elbows, knees and scalp but can affect other parts of the body)
