Normally, a dermatologist specializes in skin diseases. But in many cases, you would first see your primary care physician or nurse-practitioner, and he or she will be able to identify the problem, at which time they can prescribe the proper medication. If the condition seems more complicated, they may refer you to a dermatologist.
