The skin’s protective barrier covers our body and gives rise to our hair, nails and sweat glands. In addition nerves in the skin sense touch, hot, cold and pressure. The skin protects virtually all other organs, plays a key role in cooling us off when we get hot and retaining heat when we get cold. The skin is the only organ visible to the entire world. Dermatologists are the specialists who are trained to provide diagnosis and management of skin, hair and nails to patients of all ages. The medical practice of Dermatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of skin problems. Disorders of the skin include not only life threatening skin cancers and immune disorders, but also include profoundly uncomfortable skin conditions that may dramatically alter appearances with resultant effects on self-confidence.
