Dermatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the skin (integumentary system).

There is much interest in the use of holistic treatments for skin conditions, that is - 'holistic dermatology". This can take various forms such as hypnosis, homeopathy, Bach Flower Remedies, and subliminal mind-training or relaxation techniques (in the cases of conditions that may be exacerbated by stress and/or anxiety). However, it is recommended to consult your usual physician or relevant professional in cases of new and/or changing skin conditions.

Aspects of dermatology are taught as required parts of courses in most bodywork, beauty, and holistic therapies. To read more about medical dermatology visit "The Electronic Textbook of Dermatology" (a website intended primary for trained clinical dermatologists, but also an excellent reference of general interest).
