Customer Question

I have been having skin concerns for almost 2 months now, I've had random small itchy bumps appearing on my wrist and other parts of my body and I can't seem to find any treatment to help as over the counter treatments from the pharmacy have not done anything.
JA: How long have you been using the medication? Any improvements so far?
Customer: Around 3 weeks but no improvements
JA: Got it. Have you seen a dermatologist about the itchiness?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
