How seeing a dermatologist can help

If you think you have acne, you’ll find plenty of acne treatments online and in stores. These treatments help clear acne for many people. If your acne goes deep into your skin, however, you’ll need a dermatologist’s help. Treatment for deep acne breakouts, such as acne cysts, requires prescription medication.

Should you have rosacea, you’ll find few treatment options online and in stores. A dermatologist can help you get the right care. This care can help prevent the rosacea from worsening.

By seeing a dermatologist, you’ll also get an accurate diagnosis, so you’ll know which skin condition you have.
