Preventing Future Problems
Dermatologists are a great resource for learning how to prevent skin, hair, and nail concerns. They can teach you how to protect yourself from the sun to avoid skin cancer, caution you about hair care practices that can contribute to hair loss, and advise you on how to care for your nails to prevent common conditions such as nail fungus.
