The skin is the largest organ of the body. The skin protects body from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. Skin has three layers: The epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands. The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat and connective tissue. Skin acts as a physical barrier and provides protection against foreign invaders. Skin is characterised as primary immune system as they are considered to be a unit specialised cells of the body system. Some of these cells observe invasion by foreign proteins, like microorganism and viruses, while different cells have the capability of destroying and removing such material.

A skin lesion is any change in the normal character of your skin. A skin lesion may occur on any part of your body and cover a tiny or large area. Skin lesions can be singular or multiple, confined to one specific area of your body or distributed widely. Skin lesions include rash, cysts, pus-filled sacs, blisters, swelling, discolorations, bumps, hardening, or any other change in or on your skin. Skin lesions may result from a wide range of causes, as harmless as a small scrape or as serious as skin cancer.
A normal skin mole is tan, brown, or black. Moles are usually round and less than 1/4 inch (6 mm) in diameter. Symptoms of a skin lesion include a new mole, and an old mole that has changed shape, color, or size. Additional symptoms of a skin lesion include skin lumps that increase in size, bleed, ooze, contain blood vessels, or become scaly or crusty.

Skin diseases includes common skin rashes to severe skin infections, which occurs due to range of things, such as infections, heat, allergens, system disorders and medications. Foremost common skin disorders are dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is associate current (chronic) condition that causes restless, inflamed skin. Most frequently it seems as patches on the face, neck, trunk or limbs. It tends to flare up sporadically so subside for a time. Skin infections are caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. The major skin infectious diseases are impetigo, Staph infections, cellulitis etc. Skin infections can lead to skin inflammations such as infectious dermatitis. It is also a cause of various skin diseases that can ultimately lead to leprosy.

The skin is the largest and most visible organ of the body. It reflects the health of the body and acts as a barrier against injury and bacteria. Unfortunately, at one time or another, nearly everyone has some type of skin disease - infants, children, teenagers, adults and the elderly. Dermatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails, oral cavity and genitals. It also focuses on maintaining the health of your skin.

Herbal Dermatology uses topical creams and lotions made of ingredients available in nature. Much of the recent literature reviews plant-derived ingredients, which may include herbs, roots, flowers and essential oils, but natural substances in skin care products include animal-derived products such as beeswax, and minerals. These substances may be combined with various carrier agents, preservatives, surfactants, humectants and emulsifiers.
Herbal therapy is becoming increasingly popular among patients and physicians. Many herbal preparations are marketed to the public for various ailments including those of the skin. Herbal therapies have been used successfully in treating dermatologic disorders for thousands of years in Europe and Asia. In Germany, a regulatory commission oversees herbal preparations and recommended uses. In Asia, herbal treatments that have been used for centuries are now being studied scientifically.

Cosmetic dermatology is a specialty of medicine involved to treat the skin, hair, or nails using a treatment that is meant to improve a patient's appearance rather than treat a disease. Examples of treatments dermatologists perform that fall into the area of cosmetic dermatology include: surgery to diminish acne scars, injecting fillers and botulinum toxins to give an aging face a more youthful appearance, laser surgery to diminish or remove small veins, age spots, tattoos, or wrinkles.

Trichology is a specialised branch of medicine that deals with the scientific study of the health of hair and scalp and the diseases related to them. Problems may include baldness, scaling of the scalp, itching, scalp eczema and psoriasis, premature graying, hair loss, hair breakage, hair damage, hair thinning, seborrhea dermatitis, head lice, dandruff, dryness and oiliness. Derived from the Greek word 'Trikhos' which means 'hair', the disciplined area of Trichology originated in London, England in 1902. Since Trichology deals with the anatomy, growth and diseases of the hair, this field involves in-depth study of chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, and has gained much importance in the recent years with the popularisation of paramedical sciences.
A Trichologist's job is very different from that of a hair stylist or beautician. They spend hundreds of hours just studying the hair, scalp and their intricacies. The main job of Trichologists involve evaluating the client; examining and diagnosing the cause of their disease/ problems and giving appropriate treatment. They cure or prevent diseases by prescribing treatments such as application of special lotions and ointments to the scalp, or by using materials such as, electrotherapy machines and ultra-violet lamps. Trichologists treat damage of the hair or scalp caused as a result of the misuse of hair colouring, permanent waving and straightening products, and give advice to those persons about the side effect. They can also prescribe nutritional supplements.

Human skin is the largest organ of the body. Together with various other components such as glands, fingernails, and hair, it comprises a complex system known as the integumentary system. Cutaneous biology is the study of cellular and molecular biology of human skin and its associated diseases. Human skin performs a number of diverse functions critical to normal human health, including protection from environmental insults such as pathogens, physical damage, and radiation from the sun.
In addition, skin helps maintain homeostasis, possesses metabolic activity, delivers touch, heat, and pain sensations via the peripheral nervous system, excretes salts and wastes, and aids in wound healing.

Dermatopathology is the medical subspecialty of pathology that includes surgical pathology, skin infections, skin pathology etc. The study focuses on connective tissue diseases at a microscopic and molecular level. It additionally encompasses analyses of the potential causes of skin diseases at a basic level. Dermatopathological cases may include various skin disorders including melanoma and many other immunologic, infectious and pediatric diseases of skin.

Dermoscopy or dermatoscopy refers to the examination of the skin using skin surface microscopy, and is also called ‘epiluminoscopy’ and ‘epiluminescent microscopy’. This traditionally consists of a magnifier (typically x10), a non-polarised light source, a transparent plate and a liquid medium between the instrument and the skin, and allows inspection of skin lesions unobstructed by skin surface reflections.
Dermoscopy is mainly used to evaluate pigmented skin lesions. In experienced hands it can make it easier to diagnose melanoma. Computer software can be used to archive dermatoscopy images and allow expert diagnosis and reporting (mole mapping). Smart programs may aid in diagnosis by comparing the new image with stored cases with typical features of benign and malignant pigmented skin lesions.

Dermatosurgery has been defined as the practice of dermatology that specializes in surgical procedures and minimally invasive treatments to improve the health, function and appearance of skin. Any surgical intervention is necessarily entwined with risk of complications, but the level of risk is low in case of dermatosurgery. Dermatosurgeries are performed under topical anesthesia or local anesthesia thereby reducing the risk involved in such surgeries. Most dermatologic interventions are performed through intact skin with only resident bacterial flora. Dermatologists do not perform aesthetic surgeries on an infected skin.

Psychodermatology is an interesting domain of dermatology that overlaps with psychiatry. This arena in dermatology has received limited diligence, partly due to lack of training in this realm. Psychodermatology or psychocutaneous medicine encompasses disorders prevailing on the boundary between psychiatry and dermatology. This domain of dermatology is not new, but has often received limited attention. Approximately 30-40% patients seeking treatment for skin disorders have an underlying psychiatric or a psychological problem that either causes or exacerbates a skin complaint. Psychodermatology simply refers to the treatment of skin diseases with psychological techniques, such as:Relaxation, Biofeedback, Hypnosis, Meditation etc. Frequently treated conditions are: psoriasis, eczema, hives, genital and oral herpes, acne, warts, skin allergies, pain and burning sensations, hair loss and compulsive skin picking and hair pulling. Psychological or psychiatric treatments are the primary treatments for some dermatological disorders, including trichotillomania and Morgellons

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful. Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting (chronic) disease. There may be times when your psoriasis symptoms get better alternating with times your psoriasis worsens. Psoriasis signs and symptoms can vary from person to person but may include: Red patches of skin covered with silvery scales, Small scaling spots (commonly seen in children), Dry, cracked skin that may bleed, itching, burning or soreness, Thickened, pitted or ridged nails, Swollen and stiff joints etc. Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions that cover large areas. The cause of psoriasis isn't fully known, but it's thought to be related to an immune system problem with cells in your body. More specifically, one key cell is a type of white blood cell called a T lymphocyte or T cell. Normally, T cells travel throughout the body to detect and fight off foreign substances, such as viruses or bacteria.

Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25 but some older and younger people are affected. Boys are more commonly affected than girls. Acne usually affects the face but may also affect the back, neck and chest. The severity can range from mild to severe. About 8 in 10 teenagers develop some degree of acne. Often it is mild. However, it is estimated that about 3 in 10 teenagers have acne bad enough to need treatment to prevent scarring. Untreated acne usually lasts about 4-5 years before settling.
Acne may be treated with a combination of remedies including over-the-counter skin care, acne medications, and chemical or laser procedures. Learn safe ways to banish blackheads, whiteheads, and cystic acne, and get the clear skin you want.
