Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with the skin, mucous membranes, hair and nails.

The skin is the largest and heaviest organ of the body, playing several key roles such as protection against external substances, control of temperature, vitamin D synthesis and it also has an immune function. The skin has three layers, the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, providing the fibrous framework. Dermatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as plaque psoriasis, chronic spontaneous urticaria, melanoma, and atopic dermatitis.
