Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with problems of the skin, scalp, hair, and nails. There is a huge scope in dermatology as there is an increase in the level of skin diseases today. Almost everyone comes across a situation where they have a rash or an illness which needs medical attention. In dermatology, because diagnosis is still made on the basis of history and clinical examination while investigations are used only for confirmation, every case is a clinical challenge and a rare case diagnosed correctly gives one great satisfaction.
