We helped over 18 million people last year to answer the question, What’s wrong with my skin?

Our website is owned and managed by DermNet New Zealand Trust, a registered charity. We rely on your generosity to deliver accurate dermatological information to health professionals and their patients.

This year, please consider making a donation of whatever you can, to protect and sustain DermNet NZ. We need funds to research and update topics and to expand the image library.
