How to Know if You Need To See Your Dermatologist ASAP!

Few skin issues that may warrant immediate attention would be blistering or painful rashes; rapidly changing or bleeding moles; and painful or spreading red swollen areas that feel warm. If any of these are accompanied by a fever and you couldn't get a derm appointment immediately, see your primary doctor.
If you need a mole checked or you have a rash that lasts more than 5 days, get the next available appointment.
As for those other hair, skin and nail issues, like flaky scalp to toenail fungus, call and see your dermatologist when you get the chance.
