Doctor insights on:
Dermatologist Or Allergist
See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.
I have very painful itchy skin, no rash. Comes and goes. Have seen dermatologist and allergist. This has been going on for 5 years.
It would be hard for: Us to determine the cause or the treatment. Don't know what your medical workup showed or your diagnosis. Sometimes acupuncture can be used to treat symptoms even if cause is not known.
Either: Your primary care physician should be able to provide first line treatment for you. An allergist will help more in finding the triggers of your eczema. A dermatologist will be more help in managing your skin.
Depends: If you are sure it is allergic and want to find out what you may be allergic to, i'd sat the allergist. If there is any doubt, go to see your primary doc or a dermatologist.

Allergist/Dermatologist confirmed Urticaria from Nickel tooth braces.3 months later I still have symptoms at least once a day. What else could it be? Can it be helicobacter pylori (I have read online)?
Allergy Ni Braces?: Allergist/Dermatologist confirmed Urticaria from Nickel tooth braces.3 months later I still have symptoms at least once a day. What else could it be? Can it be helicobacter pylori (I have read online)? ANS: I recommend the only thing you read online is Uptodate. Com. This will save time, money and maybe your life. You did not say what symptoms? Braces still in? Then that most likely cause.
I have hives since 4 months. Should I consult allergist or dermatologist? I was prescribed Loradatine for 2 weeks but it didn't help. The hives appear at new places on the body everyday and itch a lot for a couple of hours.
Allergist vs Dermatologist: Any competent specialist in either field would help you, now that it is there for 4 months it became chronic, there are several other antihistamines than loratadine to deal with your case in different dose regimens, beside other medicines if needed, more important is history, examination and probably some investigations, good luck
Depends: Both specialities deal with allergic skin conditions: atopic eczema, contact eczema, urticaria of different forms, if the allergic condition is affecting more than one system, skin and respiratory tract for example, allergists deal with both, although there are no sharp lines, except for special expertise needed in either specialty, such as desensitization practiced by allergists
Depends: It depends on what is causing the rash and how it looks.... Sometimes your regular medical doctor (internist/pediatrician/fp) can help you decide. If it is red, itchy then an allergist is usually a good idea. If it's dark then a dermatologist is a good idea. This is just a general "rule of thumb"...
