Dermatologist in Long Island Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology When Should I See A Dermatologist in Huntington, Hicksville, Syosset and Plainview, NY?

A dermatologist is a specialist that knows how to prevent, treat and diagnose a wide range of conditions and diseases that affect the hair, skin, and nails. If you are dealing with any of these issues, our dermatologists Dr. Daniel Sherer and Dr. Todd Coven have the knowledge, skills, and tools to be able to provide a swift diagnosis as well as a custom treatment plan. Wondering when you should turn to a dermatologist?

You can’t get acne under control

It’s true that many of the acne treatments on the market can take up to six weeks to be effective; however, if you’ve been trying acne products for 4-6 weeks and not seeing results it might be time to turn to us. After all, we provide a wide range of treatment options to help alleviate all types of acne. We understand that there isn’t one treatment that will work for everyone. If your acne is severe, painful, and impacting your quality of life this is also a reason to turn to us.

You need a skin cancer screening

You don’t have to notice changes in a mole or growth in order to benefit from a skin cancer screening. In fact, skin cancer can happen to anyone, so it’s important that you see a dermatologist at least once a year for a comprehensive and professional skin cancer screening. You should also turn to us right away if you notice any growth or mole that itches, is painful, bleeds, oozes, or crusts over.

You’re losing hair

It is common for many people to lose their hair as they age, but sometimes other factors such as stress or underlying health problems can also play a role in hair loss. To find out what might be to blame (and how to treat it), our dermatologist can take a small tissue sample from the scalp and analyze it to figure out why you’re losing hair and how to restore growth.

You’re experiencing signs of infection

Just as viruses, bacteria, fungus, and yeast can impact other parts of our body, they can also invade our skin. Everything from herpes and warts to athlete’s foot and more serious infections such as cellulitis may have you concerned. If you notice a painful rash, redness, swelling, streaks of red, fever, or drainage coming from the skin it’s a good idea to turn to our dermatologists for treatment.
