When is it time to see your dermatologist? It’s hard enough to get people, especially men, to regularly visit even their own general practitioners; let alone a specialist like a dermatologist. Of course, those with pre-existing skin-conditions are more apt to visit their dermatologists on a regular basis. But if that’s not you, what are at least some of the motivations for you to consider doing so? We’ve found five good reasons (among many others) in the cited yasouskincare.com article below, and thought we’d summarize their choices for you.
Atop any list of skin problems to have checked out, you’ll certainly find skin cancer’s worst manifestation, Melanoma. Like all lesser skin cancers, Melanoma can be cured if caught early enough. Once it starts spreading beyond the skin and into the internal organs however, it becomes increasingly more difficult to treat- to a point at which it turns fatal. If you notice moles, blemishes or new marks on your skin that become irregular in shape, secrete fluids, change color, grow larger than a pencil’s eraser, are itchy and etc., it’s time to visit a dermatologist. You could visit your own doctor too and ask him or her their opinion(s). Just remember though that if it is Melanoma, time is of the essence. And that should be taken into consideration when scheduling an appointment for either.
180-degrees away at the opposite end of the spectrum from Melanoma is the most frequent of skin issues, acne. Acne is more of a cosmetic problem but, while not anywhere near as dangerous as skin cancer, it can cause scarring and often does cause self-confidence issues. It can occur anytime but, as many of us can attest to, it most often shows up during our adolescent years.
Eczema can mean any number of similar red skin rashes that may cause soreness, swelling, itching and etc. They, too, are often the source of anxiety and embarrassment. But a dermatologist can certainly help its sufferers reign it in.
This affliction may be triggered by numerous catalysts, can produce red skin on any areas of the face and ears, and also might continue downward onto the chest. While presently incurable, as with acne and eczema its impact can be tempered with treatment.
Signs of Aging
From wrinkles to sun spots and more, you’ve seen them everywhere. The telltale signs skin will inevitably show that we’re further along from our initial birthdays than we used to be. However, over the ensuing years since our births medical knowledge and technology has improved dramatically. And a dermatologist can assist us in these areas, as well.
When Is It Time To Visit Your Dermatologist?
Dermatologists are specialists of the skin. To paraphrase those popular car insurance commercials, it’s what they do. So if you have any questions regarding your body’s largest organ, you shouldn’t hesitate to ask.
