Specializes in Dermatology
Either: Dermatomyositis is a complex disease. Both dermatologists and rheumatologists are trained to treat this disease, but I would recommend choosing someone in either specialty who has experience, a special interest, or expertise in treating dermatomyositis. This will usually be at an academic institution.
