Acne affects majority of the world population and leads to scaring. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one of the largest organizations of dermatologists in the world, approximately 85% Americans suffer from acne at some phase in their lives.

Dermatology is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, nails, hair, and mucous membranes. The major skin diseases include dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin infections, and skin cancer. Hair loss is the most common hair disorders around the world. Bacterial and fungal infections in nails, ingrown nails, tumors and warts are some common nail disorders. In order to treat the skin, nail and hair diseases, dermatologists recommend dermatology drugs for their management.
