And that’s where a dermatologist (skin specialist doctor) comes in. A dermatologist manages diseases related to the skin, hair, nails, fat, and oral and genital membranes, and can suggest both medical (non-surgical) and surgical treatment options based on the diagnosis.
Dermatology sometimes tends to be under-appreciated or overlooked. But it is equally as important as the other branches of medicines. It deals with skin problems that are both short-term (acute) and long-term (chronic) normal and also everyday or normal and even serious. Dermatology can help individuals overcome acne, examine skin spots, receive skin cancer screening, treat eczema or psoriasis, and much more.
