Answer

Consider referral to a dermatologist in the following settings:

  • If the diagnosis of eosinophilic folliculitis needs to be confirmed

  • If the response to treatment is inadequate

  • If the primary care physician is not familiar with the recommended treatment modality

  • If the patient has widespread or severe eosinophilic folliculitis
