When your doctor or other health care provider suggests you see a dermatologist, it’s often best to talk to your family physician.
It’s easier to discuss the pros and cons of a treatment, the best options for treatment, and how you can avoid a potential side effect.
However, some dermatologists don’t feel comfortable talking to families about hair growth.
For example, dermatologists who are not comfortable talking about the pros of topical hair loss treatments, such as topical creams and creams containing ingredients that can cause skin irritation, can often charge you more than a dermatologic specialist.
You can also avoid talking to a dermatology specialist if you think your hair loss may be related to a condition that you or your children have.
“Some dermatologists are uncomfortable talking about a specific treatment or procedure that is not medically appropriate,” said Dr. David P. Pohl, chairman of the department of dermatology at Boston Children’s Hospital and the co-author of the “Dirty Secrets” book.
“But if it’s really a common condition that’s affecting the hair growth, I would recommend that you talk to a family physician or dermatologist if you don’t think you have that.”
You should also ask your doctor if you need to talk with a dermatologists dermatologist about the risks and benefits of a specific product, treatment, or procedure, or if there are any questions about the treatment or treatment.
Dr. Poth says that the most common thing to discuss with a doctor about the use of a particular treatment or medication is how it affects your skin.
If you or someone you know is having problems with hair loss or you’re concerned about how the treatment affects your health, talk to someone who knows more about it, Pohl said.
You might be able to find a dermatological specialist who has an in-depth understanding of the issue and who can be more helpful.
Hair loss may affect someone’s appearance, so it’s important to talk candidly about the problems with your appearance, Dr. Puth said.
To find a family doctor who can discuss a particular diagnosis, ask your insurance company or a dermatodist who has done work for you for referrals to a local dermatologist.
“If a dermatologist is available, talk with that person about the history of your hair and the side effects of any treatments,” Pohl added.
