SKIN-derm for dummies

MY SIMPLE RULES FOR DERM DIAGNOSIS

#1. there are about 3000 skin diseases..you only need to know about 20-30!!

#2. LOOK first and ask question later!!

#3. ther are ONLY two questions to ask…does it itch? and …how long have you had it?

#4. if you do not know what it is in 5-10 seconds, you will not know in 5-10 minutes!!!

#5. when in doubt–biopsy, culture, gram stain, microscopy etc.
