In brief: Acne!

Urticaria, itching with and without rashes, finger/toe nail problems.
Many are brancing into bo-tox, cosmetic surgery. It's a great specialty. Almost as much interest as radiation oncology!

In brief: Derms see a lot

Dermatologists study diseases of skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes so they see anything that involves these regions.
In addition, there are sub-specialties like cosmetic dermatology and mohs microsurgery so they see anything from wrinkles, scarring, acne, rashes, nail diseases, and infections, to skin cancer to say the least.
