 Course Description Contents 

In response to requests by participants in previous years, we have changed the format of the present meeting, at least in the morning, to small group interactive sessions. Experts in the field will discuss three of the more common skin problems which have to be dealt with in general practice: the common eruptions of the face, skin breakdown, and the surgical approach to discrete facial lesions. In the afternoon we revert to a lecture format with the opportunity for questions after the session. The subjects to be covered in this section comprise the treatment of eczema in infancy through to adolescence, the diagnosis of drug eruptions and how to handle hair loss.

 Benefits of Attending Contents 

Upon completion of this course, you would be able to:

  • discriminate between the various common facial eruptions as a prelude to offering specific therapy;
  • be familiar with the essentials of healing ulcers whether of venous, arterial or pressure type;
  • recognize the common facial lesions amenable to surgical therapy and be able to undertake some of these personally;
  • know the therapy available for childhood eczema and for hair loss;
  • have a heightened awareness of the many forms which drug eruptions can take and a respect for the significant morbidity they can cause in the skin.
