How many times have you had a scary skin or hair/scalp issue and decided to handle the problem yourself with a over-the-counter (OTC) product? Well, you are not alone. Many of us have a tendency to ignore major skin/hair issues and decide to skip the dermatologist then head online to search for advice and product recommendations.

If you are experiencing skin, hair, or nail issues that are messing with your piece of mind, you should be heading to a dermatologist instead of taking matters into your own hands. Also, please make sure to schedule a yearly appointment with a dermatologist for a skin test. Skin tests help identify substances and ingredients that are causing allergy symptoms and help to detect early skin issues that can lead to bigger problems in the future.

Here are the seven non-negotiable signs you should consider consulting a dermatologist.

  • One of the things not mentioned in the article is the possibility of having PCOS — particularly in the case of having acne. Symptoms of PCOS includes having irregular periods, weight gain (particularly in the midsection), facial hair, some hair loss, and acne. I don’t know all of the technical terms associated with PCOS. However, I do know that it is tied to a hormonal imbalance where the body produces an excessive amount of androgens which leads to the overproduction of sebum. Therefore, if that is the case, most acne medication is not going to work and the only solution would be to reduce starch carbs and almost exclude sugar in order to lose weight and change the hormonal imbalance.

    Some skin conditions can also be the result of what is going on INSIDE of the body.

    i suffered with cystic acne and didn’t want to deal with drugs. i read that 2tbsp of apple cider vinegar diluted with 1/4 cup of juice, i use apple, works and it does. worked like a charm. i stared taking it twice a day for about three days then cut back to once a day. i now take it three times a week and looks better than it has in years. to clear up the dark spots i wipe my face with fresh lemon juice and although the process is a little slow the spots are fading. i also stopped eating processed food /sugar and that helped a great deal as well.
