Dermatologists, also known as “skin doctors” are physicians that specialize in diagnoses, treatment and prevention of skin, nail, hair and mucous membrane diseases or disorders. In addition to the treatment of diseases, dermatologists are also interested in aesthetic and cosmetic concerns. They can also assist with problems of hair and nails. They help address and treat cosmetic problems whilst also improving the health of these parts. Some common conditions treated by dermatologists include acne, warts, and psoriasis and skin cancer.
Several symptoms indicate the presence of a dermatological condition, and some common ones are listed below. If you notice any of these symptoms, you must contact your GP for clarifications and referral or see a dermatologist. Please note that some symptoms are not specific for dermatologic disorders and can indicate the presence of another disease.
