Our skin is the largest organ of our body but conditions that affect the skin are often overlooked by the public and healthcare professionals. We are a group of students from Nottingham who are enthusiastic and keen to highlight the importance of early detection of dermatological conditions as well as the detrimental psychological impact that it can have on the patient. Therefore, we have decided to participate in BOTDS for the first time this year to raise awareness of skin conditions and fundraise for the British Skin Foundation. We hope that this can allow more research for better understandings and treatments for ALL skin diseases!
