What is Local Dermatologist

If you have a skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, dermatitis, suspicious mole that could be skin cancer or an unidentified rash, your local family physician may refer you to a local dermatologist. A local dermatologist a physician who has trained in treating skin, nail and hair conditions. Skin conditions can be common in people of all ages, and often accompany another medical condition. For example, people with psoriatic arthritis have both arthritis and psoriasis and may work with both a local rheumatologist and a local dermatologist. People with lupus may experience a lupus rash and work with both a local rheumatologist and dermatologist.
