The most common skin condition in the US commonly appears on the face and shoulders or may also occur on arms, legs, and buttocks. Acne is a long-term skin condition that is caused by dead skin cells and oil from the skin clogging hair follicles. Typical symptoms of the condition include pimples, oily skin, blackheads or whiteheads, and possible scarring. The seriousness of the condition can be evaluated by an online dermatologist in a virtual visit. A treatment plan can range from a diet to changes in your skincare routine and may include prescription medication.
Hives and RashesHives and Rashes
Hives, also known as red welts and skin rashes, are often caused by an allergic reaction that can appear on any part of the body. An online dermatologist can identify hives and rashes during a virtual visit by visually inspecting the skin condition via video. Because hives and skin rashes can be extremely itchy, a virtual visit with an online dermatologist from the comfort of your own home may be ideal for individuals suffering from these conditions.
Hair lossHair loss
Can affect both men and women, but it’s more common in men. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent and could be the result of hormonal changes, medical conditions, heredity, or just a normal part of aging. With a virtual visit, an online dermatologist can give a diagnosis and identify more common causes of hair loss, such as scalp ringworm and pattern baldness.
Also known as atopic dermatitis is an itchy rash that can appear anywhere on the body, but is most commonly on the arms and the back of the knees. In the US about 10% of adults will develop atopic dermatitis at some point. Eczema can be identified through a virtual visit by an online dermatologist who can give a treatment plan and prescribe medicated creams to relieve the irritating itching.
Is a common skin condition that can affect anyone, but is most common in middle-aged white women. Rosacea causes blushing, reddening, visible blood vessels, sometimes pimples on the face, and small pus-filled bumps. These symptoms can intensify for weeks to months and treatment requires a combination of prescription drugs and good skin care. A virtual visit is usually enough for an online dermatologist to identify rosacea and write out prescription medication.

What is dermatology and who is an online dermatologist?
Dermatology is a healthcare branch with the main focus on the skin. A dermatologist is a specialist medical professional who manages diseases related to hair, nails, skin, and other cosmetic problems. Dermatologists care for people of all ages, from newborns to seniors.
Online dermatology care is just like an in-person dermatology visit, the main difference is that it is done through a video call where a dermatologist can inspect a patient’s condition, give a diagnosis and come up with a treatment plan. Dermatologists are medical physicians with the highest training and expertise in this field.
An online dermatologist is a doctor who consults patients remotely. Patients do not have to wait weeks for an appointment and can start a visit anytime without leaving the comfort of their homes. Many conditions can be safely and effectively treated online with the correct treatment plan and appropriate prescriptions.
