This is a good time to tell the doctor about any itching, burning or redness on your skin.
This may include taking a sample of tissue, so that the doctor can determine what is causing the irritation.
You or your parent may ask the doctor more questions about the treatments and side effects.
You may need to return for more visits to the dermatologist. Sometimes, most of the treatment can be done at home to get rid of the lesions.
This is when the doctor will look very closely at your skin.
