Can acne be treated using over-the-counter cleansers and medications?
If you or your child experience frequent breakouts, keeping your face clean, moisturized, and avoiding the use of makeup or other creams that can clog your pores is the first step to clearer skin.
When those measures aren’t successful, you should schedule an appointment with your primary care provider, who can prescribe treatment that addresses the underlying cause of your acne.
What are the signs and symptoms of common skin problems?
If you’ve noticed any of the following, it might be time to schedule an appointment:
- Moles that have changed in size or shape
- New skin growths
- Frequent acne breakouts
- New rashes, ulcers, or other skin changes
- Dryness, itching, or flaking
Because your skin is your body’s first line of defense against invaders, it’s important to see a dermatologist if you have compromised skin. Cracks and open sores can be prone to infection and put your entire body at increased risk of complications.
When is it time to see a doctor for skin problems?
Because it’s hard to differentiate between cancerous or pre-cancerous skin cells and other common changes and problems, it’s important to see a doctor if you notice any worrisome changes in your skin.
If you develop a new rash, you should see a doctor to rule out infectious conditions before returning to school or work. Also, if your skin problems are impacting your confidence or self-esteem, a doctor can help.
The professionals are within reach at First Keller Healthcare, eager to provide quick, competent, and compassionate treatment when you need it. To find out if your skin problem can be treated at First Keller Healthcare, contact the team today.
