Dermatology Sciences in India

Dermatology is the medical science of diagnosing and treating skin diseases affecting the skin, hair, and nails. It is a specialty with both medical and surgical aspects.Dermatologists specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin diseases and cancers. The skin is the largest organ in the body and also includes hair, nails, the wet areas of the mouth and genitalia.

Typical skin consultations include acne, psoriasis, atopic eczema, skin infections such as warts, mole surveillance, melasma and occupational dermatitis. Dermatologists also conduct Mohs surgery and deliver cosmetic services such as laser therapy. The majority of Australian dermatologists work in metropolitan private practice. However, many provide outreach services to rural and remote areas on a regular basis.
