A dermatology consultation can help diagnosis a skin condition and get recommendations for treatment.
What does a dermatology consultation involve?
In a dermatology consultation, a dermatologist will examine your skin for evidence of skin conditions that may need treatment.
What does the dermatologist want to discuss?
During the consultation, the dermitologist will want to discuss your complete medical history. This may include:
- Any symptoms and skin concerns
- Any medications you take or have taken
- Your lifestyle, such as whether or not you smoke and how active you are, as well as information relevant to your problem

Dermatology consultation outcomes
The dermatologist can assess your skin and recommend next steps, which may include a particular course of treatment.
Preparing for a dermatology consultation
Before the consultation, we recommend that you gather together the information the dermatologist might need, think about what you want to get out of the consultation, and prepare any questions.
The dermatologist will want to collect basic personal information, including name, age, and health care number, as well as the name of your family doctor if you have one, or any other health professionals you are working with.
