Same Day Dermatology Appointments

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Like any other body part, it can develop problems that need to be addressed. Most skin issues do not require immediate attention; however, for those situations when urgent care is required, Olansky Dermatology may be able to accommodate you. If you are experiencing a problem with your skin that you feel needs to be diagnosed right away, give us a call. We are usually able to see patients who need immediate assistance.

Skin rashes are caused by a variety of sources. Bug bites, allergic reactions to certain plants, animals, foods or other allergens, and infections are but a few of the many causes for skin disorders. Often, a patient can pinpoint the reason for a rash or irritation, but there are situations when the skin may develop symptoms without an identifiable cause.

There are also situations when a rash or skin problem may begin to cause substantial discomfort in the form of itching, burning or pain. When the usual over-the-counter products do not work or are not effective, it may indicate that you need to have the affected area examined right away.

A same day or next day appointment is usually available at Olansky Dermatology. We understand how skin problems can interfere with your everyday activities. Dry, painful, itchy skin, blisters, rashes and sores can all cause extreme discomfort. Skin infections can develop from scratching rashes or irritated areas. If not treated promptly, these conditions could lead to serious problems.

Urgent Dermatology Care for a New Skin Rash

There are several skin conditions that may require urgent dermatological care. Among them are:

  • Cellulitis – appears as red, blotchy skin. The area may have dimples or blisters. The skin may be swollen and tender or painful to the touch.
  • Eczema – dry, itchy areas of the skin. The skin may have red to brownish-grey or dark patches. Small bumps may appear, and they may weep when scratched. Incessant scratching can cause raw, sensitive skin.
  • Impetigo – small red spots usually around the nose, mouth, hands or forearms. These spots may blister and break open, creating sores. The affected area may spread.
  • Poison oak/ivy/sumac – causes the skin to itch. Can cause hives, swelling and redness or red streaks. Blisters appear in streaks or lines and break open and may crust over.
  • Ringworm – a fungi transmitted from person to person. Athlete’s foot is a common form of ringworm. It can affect any area of the body. Ringworm usually forms ring-shaped flat areas with an elevated, scaly border. Lighter skin may show a red rash while dark skin may develop a brown/grey rash. There may be intense itching or pain in some instances.
  • Shingles – the first symptoms are usually a painful burning sensation or numbness. Shingles affects one side of the body with a red, itchy rash after the initial symptoms. The rash forms blisters that will crust over after breaking open.

Early diagnosis and treatment of these skin conditions can ease the discomfort they cause. While we cannot guarantee a same day appointment due to demand, we always do our best to see urgent cases as soon as possible.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
