Your dermatology pocket guide: common skin conditions explained

This 62 page PDF document covers the basics including taking a history and skin examination, and divides skin diseases into those affecting adults and those affecting children. 킠The section on practical advice on topical treatments is particularly well written by the nursing authors (although UK trade names of steroid preparations are used). 킠The layout is nice and easy to use but this probably works better as a pocket book than on -screen.
