What is Dermatology?
Dermatology is a branch of medicine dealing with the skin and its diseases.  A doctor who specialises in this is called a Dermatologist.

Referral Expectations

A dermatologist can, in some cases, diagnose skin conditions just by looking at them.  The shape, size, colour and location are all assessed, as well as any other symptoms.  At times a biopsy has to be taken so that a diagnosis can be made. A biopsy is the removal of a small piece of the skin/lesion for examination under a microscope.  Minor surgery may be needed to perform this biopsy. In some cases the whole lesion will be removed and examined. 
Another way a dermatologist can examine a skin disorder is by scraping some of the top layer of skin from the lesion/affected area.  This is called a skin scraping.  This scraping is also sent to the laboratory for examination.
