When should I see a dermatologist?

If you are experiencing any irregular symptoms in areas such as the skin, hair and nails then you may want to see a dermatologist in-clinic for an assessment and examination. These symptoms could include hair loss, dandruff, rashes and lesions or if you are perhaps getting more cold sores than normal 

How dermatologists diagnose skin conditions

Most common conditions can easily be diagnosed by a trained dermatologist through a visual examination. More in-depth diagnostic methods include patch tests, such as for allergies, or a biopsy which involves taking a sample from the target area.

How to prepare to see a dermatologist:

To ensure the dermatologist can provide an accurate diagnosis during your appointment, you can help by noting down any concerns and answers in advance. Considerations include when the problem first appeared, if you are aware of what may have caused it, anything that helps improve the issue and key descriptive details.  

Get the most out of your appointment with the dermatologist with the below tips: 

  • Have photos available to show the dermatologist if your symptoms tend to flare or show in ebbs and flows. This will help to give them a clearer understanding of your condition.  
  • Wear loose clothing that you can easily move to reveal the areas of concern. 
  • Don’t wear makeup if the dermatologist needs to be able to examine your face. 

What to expect from an in-clinic dermatologist appointment:  

Appointments usually take between five to thirty minutes depending on the individual need. The dermatologist will ask for a description of your symptoms and the reason for the appointment. This will allow the dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment. If necessary, they may recommend a follow-up appointment
