When To Visit Doctor?

The longer the rash on your skin, the more likely it is to see a doctor. Many times, a rash go away after some couple of days but if a rash stays longer than it may be time to see your doctor.

• Consider Previous Rashes
Many people think that because a rash comes back, it wasn't diagnosed correctly initially.  However, many rashes aren't necessarily cured they're just controlled and can recur.

• Consider What the Rash Looks Like
Try to identify what kind of rash do you have.  But sometimes you can't find a picture or description that exactly matches your skin symptoms. And sometimes you can't decide between two or three choices.

If your symptoms are mild and short, then a doctor's visit may not be necessary.
