We all know to go and see our doctor when we feel under the weather or suffer from some sort of pain we can’t explain and need the doctor to aid us. But what about our skin and the dermatologist? When should we go and see our “skin-doctor” and when will using skin care products will suffice? Here are a few tips to help you decide when you should go to the dermatologist.
Check Your Skin’s Type
We always say that in order to provide our skin with the best care, we need to be aware of our skin’s type and condition. When you can’t determine one of those, it is best recommend to consult with your dermatologist. A simple check by your doctor will allow you to better treat your skin and keep it healthy and beautiful.
Extreme Changes to Your Skin
Sometimes extreme changes occur in our skin. It can be the appearance of acne, a change in our skin’s tone and discoloration, or other change that is noticeable. In such cases, it is best to consult with our dermatologist and allow them to check our skin. Sometimes, the dermatologist will advise to simply apply one skin care product or another, but it may happen that our skin needs a medical attention and the dermatologist will allow us to treat our skin before it’s getting worse. And when it comes to our health – better be safe than sorry.
When You Feel Something is Wrong
Sometimes it can’t be ignored – we simply feel something is wrong with our skin. Whether it is panful for some reason, when it is excessively irritates or when we see damage to our skin that needs medical attention. Don’t neglect it when your skin bothers you, don’t apply your skin care and hope it will get better, even if it is simply really itchy – make sure you go to your dermatologist and allow them to examine whether your skin needs medical treatment.
