Should I see an allergist or a dermatologist for my rash?

This is a suggested guide to steer you in the right direction.

See an allergist if you have:
Swelling episodes with or without redness
Hives (itchy welts that last less than 24 hours)
Chronically itchy skin in the skin folds (behind elbows, knees, neck) which may be eczema.
Rash occurring after starting a new medication (in the first few months)

See a dermatologist if you:
Have a pimply or blistering rash
Rash restricted to the face
Rash present in the same spot for more than a few days
Fever and rash
