About this book


This book offers a guide to common dermatologic conditions most often treated by primary care providers. Most dermatologic disorders in the United States are treated by primary care physicians, and yet primary care training programs do not prioritize dermatology. This easy-to-use reference answers that need with practical recommendations for diagnosing and treating these common diseases along with a number of illustrative color images. Throughout, chapters are either organized by population and the dermatologic conditions common to those groups or diseases commonly encountered in primary care. Populations covered include children, pregnant women, and athletes, and common diseases covered include dermatitis, warts, herpes, psoriasis, and some skin cancers. This is an essential resource for primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who treat dermatologic conditions in their daily practice.
