Here is Dr. Gislason's Preface

The skin is a sensing, reactive, dynamic surface that covers the body. The skin is treated as an organ in biology and medicine and like other organs, the skin offers many vital services and has specific requirements to remain fully functional. Unlike other organs, the skin is exposed to the environment and suffers direct damage from the sun, the air, and water.

The skin is also exposed to foreign chemicals that do damage. Some chemicals are deliberately applied to the skin, others are in the environment. Areas of skin are infected often. Some infections are acute and even life-threatening, other infections are chronic and difficult to treat. Fungal infections are the most common.

Skin diseases are numerous and the skin in involved in over a thousand systemic diseases including genetic disorders. This book focuses on the most common skin disorders that can be controlled by changes in skin care, diet and the environment. Eczema, for example, is sometimes an expression of food allergy, or allergy to contact materials. Dermatologist may deny the food allergy causes, so that their patients often have to make independent decisions. In all aspects of medicine, I advocate responsible self-management and offer this book as primer and reference for self-managers with skin problems.

There have been big changes in dermatology in the past decade. Skin care products have proliferated and their claims are exaggerated beyond any reasonable interpretation of skin science. Many dermatologists have moved from treating disease to offering cosmetic advice and procedures such as chemical peels, botox and lasers. Plastic surgeons are busy removing subcutaneous fat and sagging skin.

New more effective and more risky immune blocking agents have been introduced to treat eczemas and psoriasis. While there are benefits, the potential risks are ominous. Patients need more and better information to make good choices about the care of their skin.
