What is dermatology and a dermatologist?


The skin, which covers the entire body, especially the vital organs, is exposed to harmful environmental conditions such as many chemicals, various microorganisms, and allergens. Dermatology, also known as Skin and Venereal Diseases, is the medical unit that deals with environmental factors, the effects of any disease in the body on the skin, and primary skin diseases. It is a science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair, nails, oral mucosa, and sexually transmitted diseases.

Skin with Tests and Treatments


Pathergy Test:


In this test, a pierce with a sharp object is applied to the patient's arm at an angle of 45 degrees. Lesions in the area are evaluated within 24 to 48 hours.


Punch Biopsy:


For the diagnosis of lesions on the skin and some skin diseases, the diagnostic method is examined by taking a cylindrical, full-thickness tissue sample from the skin.


Mushroom Search Method:


It is applied to diagnose superficial fungal infections. In this method, microscopic examinations are made with samples taken from skin, hair, nails, and oral or genital mucosa.


Wood-Light Examination:


It is used for the diagnosis of infectious diseases as well as pigmentation disorders. It makes some invisible substances visible by making use of their fluorescence feature.




It is a method of treating lesions by burning them using electricity. This method is used to eliminate skin diseases such as skin moles, genital warts, epidermal cysts, and calluses.


Molloscum excretion:


Molloscum is a common and relatively harmless viral skin infection. It is a contagious infection that can be passed from one person to another through direct contact. Although it is mostly seen in children and young adults, it can be seen in people of all ages. Molloscum extraction is the removal of 2–6 millimetres of swelling done with an operational procedure.




The treatment method is carried out by applying liquid nitrogen gas to the diseased area to be removed. The liquid at -196 °C in contact with the tissue allows the tissue to freeze. At the end, the tissue returns to its normal temperature. In this freezing process, the diseased tissues are destroyed and lose their vitality.




Wrinkles play an important role in interpersonal communication. It occurs when the skin covering the mimic muscles forms folds over time. Botulinum toxin obtained from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum is the most effective method used to remove such wrinkles. With the method we know as Botox, the connection between the nerves and the muscles reached by the nerves is cut through the toxin applied to the mimic muscles of the patient. Sweating treatment with Botox is also applicable. The application of sweating treatments with Botox is very practical. Botox is injected into the area where there is excessive sweating to prevent sweating.
