Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Dermatologic conditions are very common and will affect most individuals at some point in their lifetime, accounting for many family physician office visits. Acute conditions may require treatment or can be self-limited. Others are chronic needing daily treatment or recurring in episodes. Some conditions may require assistance of a dermatologist for immunosuppressive treatment to prevent complications such as conditions seen in patients with psoriatic arthritis.
