  2. 2. What Your Doctor Knows About Exfoliative Dermatitis Exfoliative dermatitis is a very uncomfortable type of skin disease. Symptoms of exfoliative dermatitis may include extreme skin redness, itching, thickening of the skin and fever. If you happen to experience these symptoms, you should consult your doctor right away. Like any other types of illness, exfoliative dermatitis is easier to cure during its early stages. Do not try to self medicate. Always remember that it's best to see a doctor first before you take any drugs or undergo some medications.
  3. 3. Visiting Your Doctor During your first visit to your doctor, your doctor will ask you to describe all your symptoms. You may also be requested to undergo some laboratory test to determine if you really have exfoliate dermatitis or not and what types of drugs are effective for the type of skin disorder that you have. The laboratory test will not really take long. Depending on the kind of skin test that you undergo, it will probably take just a few minutes for the test to be completed. Once the skin test is complicated, your doctor will then interpret the results of the laboratory test and then prescribe the right kind of medication for your exfoliative dermatitis.
