Factors to consider when you’re looking for a dermatologist:


Comfort
  • Look for a doctor who communicates clearly, respectfully, and in terms you understand. Don’t hesitate to ask for a consultation before your official exam.

Expertise
  • Your primary care physician should be able to refer you to a dermatologist.

Coverage
  • Determine if the dermatologist you’re considering will accept your insurance, and ask questions so you know what your co-pay or other expenses will be.

Questions to ask your doctor

It’s important to speak openly and honestly with your dermatologist about the symptoms you’ve noticed and how you’re feeling so that you can determine the best course of treatment. Here are questions to ask your doctor:

  • Could my symptoms be signs of rosacea? (Symptoms can include: facial redness, red bumps, visible blood vessels, thicker skin, or irritated eyes.
  • "My symptoms make me feel"... Tell your doctor if your rosacea symptoms are making you feel insecure, more hesitant, embarrassed, or are disrupting your schedule.
  • What can I do to help prevent flare-ups?
  • How can I identify my rosacea triggers? And how do I avoid those triggers in the future?
  • I have other medical problems; will my medication for those conditions cause any interactions?
  • What skin care routine do you recommend?

Of course, don’t hesitate to ask any other questions that come up during your appointment.

Questions your doctor may ask you

  • When did you begin experiencing rosacea symptoms?
  • How often do you experience those symptoms?
  • Have your symptoms been continuous or occasional?
  • Have you noticed that your symptoms get worse after eating certain foods, or doing certain activities?
