Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 22-year-old female asked:

Not sure: You definitely need to see a dermatologist who can do photo testing to see what the rash is. They shine light on your skin from a 'light box' and see if the rash is produced. A biopsy could also be done when you have the rash.
A 27-year-old male asked:

Do not be worried: If the rash is on both sides of the chest, then you might have folliculitis, which is an inflammation of the hair follicles. If you work out, this could happen. Try an over the counter benzoyl peroxide wash (mildest) and if there is not improvement see your PMD or dermatologist.

Too tight: If your braids are too tight, your scalp will hurt when your take them down. Wearing then all the time could even cause hair loss-called traction alopecia
