Why see a dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a specialist medical physician highly trained on the skin and diseases thereof. A person would see a dermatologist for skin checks to scan for skin cancer, to check any spots and bumps, or to determine the cause of and provide treatment for any rashes etc. Dermatologists are able to provide treatments which are not available to a general practitioner, thus allowing a wider range of options for a given problem, and their expertise affords patients a greater level of assurance that their problem has been adequately dealt with.
