Other Skin Conditions
Dermatologists treat a wide range of other skin conditions, and patients of all ages.
There are some good sources of information on the Internet, although unfortunately a lot of misleading information as well.
It is best to talk to your general practitioner about any skin condition or lesion you are concerned about, and whether a referral for a specialist dermatology opinion is required.
Dermatologists deal with very common conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and skin cancer, however we also see many uncommon and rare disorders. Dermatologists are the only specialists who receive formal training in the management and diagnosis of these rare conditions, and undergo strict continuing education from year to year supervised by the Australasian College of Dermatologists.
