A dermatologist is a physician who specializes in the treatment of skin conditions and diseases including skin cancer. Dermatologists in the United States are certified by either the American Board of Dermatology or American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology after extensive education and medical residency. They treat everything from minor skin eruptions, like hives, to chronic skin diseases, such as eczema, psoriasis and lupus.  Dermatologists are excellent diagnosticians and are trained to differentiate between conditions that share similar symptoms.  In addition, dermatologists today have extensive training in cutaneous surgery, dermatopathology as well as cosmetic skin procedures and treatments.
