A dermatologist is a doctor who practices dermatology, the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions. Dermatologists treat a wide range of conditions, including skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, hair disorders such as hair loss and alopecia, and nail disorders such as nail infections and onychodystrophy. They also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of acne, rosacea, aging skin, and other skin problems, and may perform cosmetic procedures, such as fillers, Botox, and laser treatments to rejuvenate the skin’s complexion.

How do I get the most out of my dermatologist appointment?


In order to get the most out of your dermatology appointment, it is important to take the necessary steps before, during and after the appointment. Before going to the appointment, it is essential to keep track of your skin condition with pictures and research any potential treatment options that you can discuss with the dermatologist; this will get you well-prepared for starting an open conversation. During the appointment, it is crucial to communicate clearly, take notes about what the dermatologist is saying, and talk about the emotional impact your skin condition has on your life (how it makes you feel). When discussing with the dermatologist, ask what treatments are currently available, and then ask the dermatologist what treatment they would use if they were in your situation; this will give you a good idea for the best plan of action based on their professional opinion. Finally, it is imperative to be clear about your objectives—the reason for your visit and your desired outcomes.

When should I see a dermatologist?


There are many reasons to see a dermatologist, from skin irregularities to nail issues to hair loss; the most common reasons people see a dermatologist include:

Acne — The most common skin condition in the world, acne affects billions of people—virtually everyone at some point throughout their life.

Cold Sores — Also known as fever blisters or mouth sores, cold sores manifest due to an infection of the mouth, lips or gums. In most cases they go away on their own, but if they persist or appear more than twice a year, it is imperative to seek the professional help of a dermatologist.

Dandruff — Another skin condition that primarily affects the scalp, dandruff occurs when the skin on top of the head dries out and flakes, often leaving white specks of debris on the shoulders as they fall off the scalp.

Hair Loss — Because hair follicles are an intrinsic part of the skin, many people seek the care of a dermatologist when experiencing hair loss; modern dermatology methods have seen a recent surge in success within the past few decades, garnering propitious results.

Nail Issues — Another reason people see a dermatologist is when experiencing nail problems, such as an infection or fungal overgrowth.

Skin Rash — Perhaps the most commonly associated condition with dermatology, skin rashes are a common occurrence and can be caused by a number of different conditions and underlying health ailments.

Other common conditions dermatologists treat include:

– Eczema
– Psoriasis
– Skin Aging
– Skin Lesion
– Rosacea
– Skin Discoloration
– Eyelash Thinning
– Excessive Sweating
– Warts

Do dermatologists treat hair problems?


Yes, dermatologists treat hair problems. Dermatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of skin problems, and since hair follicles are part of the skin, dermatologists can address issues with hair that are related to the follicles, such as thinning or balding hair.
