Skin Care News Today, October 31, 2018 – By Lisa P. Lohmann and Lisa Parnas The common misconception about dermatology is that people should not go to a dermatology office without their doctor’s permission.
While dermatologists can provide advice, they can’t give prescriptions or prescribe medicines.
A dermatologist can prescribe a treatment or an over-the-counter medicine that can help prevent skin problems, but it is important to discuss the treatment with your doctor before going to a doctor for an appointment.
A doctor should make sure the patient understands the risks of the treatment, including potential side effects.
A general practitioner can prescribe medicine, including antibiotics and steroid injections, and can also order a skin exam.
You can ask your dermatologist to refer you to an ophthalmologist or ophthalmic surgeon for a specific type of skin examination.
A specialist can diagnose a skin problem, such as an enlarged, damaged or damaged melanoma or melanoma nodules, as well as other conditions, such atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatic fever.
To learn more about dermatologic procedures, you may want to consult with your physician’s office or a local dermatologist.
