With brutal winter weather impacting much of the country, our online dermatologists are seeing a spike in patients seeking relief from a dry, itchy, red rash. It turns out, icy roads and snowy sidewalks aren’t the only side effects of arctic storms. Winter rash, a condition caused when sensitive skin reacts to extreme temperatures, is another way wild weather can ruin your day.
Resolution season is upon us! “New year, new me” is a common mantra after a most uncommon year. Many of us are looking forward to growth opportunities in every area of our lives. While upgrading skin, hair, and nail health with the help of an online dermatologist is a pretty obvious use of our services, using telemedicine as a tool for intentional improvement is an innovative approach to a longstanding tradition.
It's a common misconception that telemedicine is reserved for single-visit issues like rashes, bug bites, and other urgent but non-emergency diagnoses. While online services are especially useful in dealing with these conditions, virtual visits are certainly not limited to acute ailments.
