Dermatosis is one of the top four problems that affect travellers. Sunburn is high on the list, especially, but not exclusively, in those who travel to sun resorts. Occasionally medicationrelated photosensitivity dermatitis occurs and travellers should be warned to immediately stop taking the suspected allergen when this occurs. For example, should photosensitivity occur when taking doxycycline, a failure to stop the drug immediately together with persistent exposure to the sun can result in a serious exfoliative dermatitis that may need hospitalization. Apart from those dermatoses that are found in temperate climates, there are a number of tropical and parasitic-related skin conditions with which the travel medicine practitioner should be familiar.
