What’s the first thing you think of when you think of a dermatologist? Skin, right? What’s next? Let me guess: Zits. A lot of people–especially teens and young adults–think of the dermatologist as the zit doctor. Breaking out all the time? Go to the dermatologist. Cystic acne? Go to the dermatologist. So on, so forth.
If you catch a bit of snark in this intro, trust, I’m not acting as if those are silly reasons to go to the dermatologist! I stand by the notion that if you have a problem with chronic zits, you should absolutely hit up a good dermatologist to see what can be done to stop them for worsening. But a dermatologist can do a lot more for you than prescribe you some cream that’ll help get rid of your pus filled breakouts, and they’re not just there to help solve other serious skin issues like psoriasis or eczema either. In fact, from hair concerns to that new mole you just found, check out these seven surprising reasons you should go to a dermatologist
