    Learning Objectives
    • Dermatitis can be helped most when we know the correct type: atopic, contact, hand dermatitis are 3 examples.
    • Skin cancers are on the rise and we can treat them medically and surgically. The main killers are melanoma and Merkel cell tumours. “If tumour is the rumour. Tissue is the issue.”
    • Drug rashes can be catogarized and managed by thinking of the appearance of the rash and the presence of fever.
