    Default Dermatology appt.

    Tomorrow morning Dylan will see a dermatologist for the first time. His nephrologist wants him to have them check his moles. Is there any questions that I should be asking?

    I can not think of anything to ask, but be prepared to answer his questions. See the second link I posted below.

    If they do a biopsy using a punch ask that the opening be sewn shut. Usually would take two stitches if they do a skin punch. I have had three done and all have been sutured. My sister had one and her DR never stitch it and the wound looks awful.


    I just located a link that maybe helpful for you... follow the yellow brick road.. http://www.skincheck.org/pdf/what_to_do.pdf and http://www.skincheck.org/Page5c.php

    Hugs with love..O.
