Dermatology in 6th semester

Skin is over. Twas a really good posting (though I didn’t attend a handsome part of it :D)
But, still I liked the classes I did attend…in fact, I feel it’s a really good option for PG and even otherwise, if you practice as a physician or even if you are in any other speciality, you wud need to know Skin well, since it’s a very common presenting complaint. It was only after this Skin posting that I realized that all the really really common infections we come across like Insect Bite Reaction, head louse infestation , generalized itching, acne, hairfall etc. etc. are all included in this field..
Maam was telling that we shud pay attention to Skin (and every clinical posting, for that matter) coz’ as doctors, we shud be able to atleast prescribe basic medicines for all conditions… and even if we cannot treat, we shud be atleast in a state to be able to describe the lesions in a decent manner at the time of giving referrals….( she mentioned how, many house surgeons posted in Medicine refer patients to Skin describing the lesions as simply “ITCHY LESION” instead of the accorded method of description :D)
I hadn’t attended any more than 3 days during my 3rd year Skin ( this was because I was depressed due to a certain incident which, I think, deserves a separate post) and so cudn benefit much that time either…. But, I must say, I liked skin a lot…
Today(well, actually, yesterday!) was the end posting bout which I have mentioned in the post that I took from another blog of mine, Jalpari.
