Dermatology is the field of medicine which looks after the skin and everything that is connected to it, like hair and nails. There are approximately 4000 different skin disorders that have already been described. Some are extremely rare but many are quite common. Psoriasis occurs in 2,5% of the population in UK and it has been estimated that up to 15 million people in UK could be living with eczema (allergyuk.org 20.04.2017).
Conditions such as acne, rosacea and skin pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo and melasma are also on the rise and greatly affect people’s quality of life. Hair and nail disorders are difficult to treat, but the sooner the diagnosis is made, the greater the likelihood of recovery. Skin cancers, such as basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), malignant melanoma and others are also diagnosed and treated by Dermatologists.
Skin “talks”. It shows an experienced dermatologist what may be happening to your general health, allowing for an early diagnosis of serious internal diseases, including cancer, gastrointestinal disorders and auto-immune diseases.
Fortunately, we live at a time when many treatments are available for previously untreatable skin complaints.
