Dermatology Q & A
What types of skin issues can a primary doctor help?
The doctors at Temecula Valley Primary Care Physicians are the first line of defense for many common skin issues. Some common skin issues primary doctors see include:
- Bumps and growths
- Cosmetic treatments
- Hair and scalp problems
- Scaly skin
- General skin lesions
Often skin complaints can be managed easily with a visit to your family doctor, so you can be seen and treated more quickly without needing a dermatology referral.
What is the process for diagnosing a skin problem?
If you’re experiencing a problem with your skin, the doctors at Temecula Valley Primary Care Physicians take a comprehensive and wellness-based approach to understand your skin complaints.
Your visit begins with your doctor learning about your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms. Your doctor inspects the area of your skin that is troubling you and may collect skin samples for testing, if needed.
Your doctor may ask about your diet and any skin care products you are using to determine if you have an allergy. Once your doctor identifies the cause of your skin problem and diagnoses your condition, you are given treatment options.
What are the treatment options for skin problems?
Your treatment will depend on the cause of your skin problem. In many cases, you can get relief by avoiding foods or skin care products that you’re allergic to or by finding safer options. Your doctor can recommend alternative products so you can replace anything that is causing problems.
For skin complaints caused by infection, your doctor prescribes antibiotics or antifungals and provides suggestions to improve your immune system to fight off viruses. If inflammation is an issue, anti-inflammatory medications may be part of your treatment.
In more serious cases -- like skin cancer -- your doctor refers you to a dermatologist for further testing and treatment.
What if I need a dermatologist referral?
The medical team at Temecula Valley Primary Care Physicians has an extensive referral network that includes the best dermatologists in the area. Your doctor coordinates additional testing and treatment with a dermatologist so you get the care you need.
