If you have psoriatic arthritis or another inflammatory condition that causes skin conditions, you may benefit from seeing a local dermatologist. Your local rheumatologist may recommend that you see a dermatologist if you’re experiencing psoriasis symptoms such as redness and scaling, rheumatoid nodules from having rheumatoid arthritis, a lupus rash from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and others. A local dermatologist is a medical doctor who is specially trained in treating conditions of the hair, skin and nails. Some local dermatologists now perform cosmetic procedures such as laser resurfacing, Botox and dermal fillers. If you’re experiencing skin conditions related to your rheumatoid arthritis or other inflammatory condition, talk to your local rheumatologist about getting a referral to a local dermatologist. A dermatologist can work with your other healthcare providers, such as a local pharmacist, cardiologist, family physician, registered dietitian, endocrinologist or orthopedic surgeon, to avoid potential arthritis medication interactions and ensure comprehensive care.
