Dermatology is the science of skin diseases. The complete field is called "dermatology and venereology".
The Department of Dermatology and Venereology has approximately 2,000 independent diagnoses. It is in constant contact and exchange with all other medical specialties - both internist and surgical subjects. Virtually all the medicine can be experienced via the "Dermatology Department" of Dermatology. The diseases of the oral mucosa, hair and nails are also included.
At its core, dermatology and venereology treat non-infectious diseases such as eczema or psoriasis, common infectious diseases of the skin such as shingles, herpes simplex or erysipelas, and finally the transmissible STDs.
A particularly important area is the treatment of skin tumors, dermatooncology. About every third person develops skin cancer in the course of life. Most patients can be cured. The investigation and treatment of skin cancer is predominantly the domain of dermatology and venereology. This includes the surgical treatment of skin cancer, where several specialties, including dermatology, make a major contribution to the correct treatment of skin cancer patients.
Other important sub-areas include allergies (allergology), skin dermatology (pediatric dermatology), sebaceous gland diseases (eg acne), circulatory disorders of the skin (eg clarification and treatment of chronic wounds), hair and nail diseases, skin problems in organ transplant patients, laser treatment of the skin and the aesthetic dermatology.
