During the last few decades the study of skin (dermatology) has made such tremendous progress that now almost any skin disease can be cured provided the patient receives the right drugs, the correct dosages and appropriate duration of treatment. Under the present circumstances, therefore, if a person still continues to suffer form a skin disease, then either the patient or the dermatologist is responsible for the suffering.
