Dermatology is the collective term used to describe the study of diseases that affect the skin, hair and nails.

The skin is made up of two main layers; epidermis and dermis. The epidermis forms the outer protective waterproof layer of the skin covering the dermis layer which is the elastic connective tissue beneath. The skin is commonly affected by a number of temporary and permanent conditions including dermatitis, psoriasis, acne and warts.

A dermatologist treats dermatological conditions with medication that is usually administered topically (onto the skin) or orally.
