About Online Dermatology

Dermatology deals with the prevention and treatment of various skin, hair, and nail diseases, as well as skin cancer. The advantage of online dermatology (also known as teledermatology) is that it provides faster and more convenient care for patients while reducing physical contact between doctors and patients, making it an effective method for combating pandemics.

Teledermatology has a long history globally, with several international congresses held annually, including the most recent ones in Houston and London.

The prescription will be sent electronically to the cloud, allowing you to pick it up at any pharmacy in the country after verifying your identity. You will receive the encrypted report, invoice, and instructions from the dermatologist via email.

If further tests are required, your dermatologist will inform you.

How can I take a good photo to assist the doctor's work?

You can take the photos anywhere, even from the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is preferable to take all the photos in natural daylight. If there is insufficient natural light, you can go to a well-lit area in your home. This can include the bathroom if the lighting there is strong. The more light you have during photography, the sharper the image will be. Initially, it is recommended to take at least 1-2 photos from a distance (approximately 1 meter) to show the location of the condition on your body. For the rest of the photos, take close-up shots from four different angles. During each photography session, keep your phone steady in one place to allow the autofocus to work properly. If you are unable to see the screen while taking the photo, it is better to use a mirror. For example, in the application, you can take a photo of your own face by standing in front of a mirror and capturing the reflection.

Can I purchase an examination using a health savings account?

Yes, it is indeed possible. Towards the end of providing the details of your symptoms, please enter the name of your health savings account and your membership identification number. The doctor will issue the invoice accordingly.

How do you ensure the security of my data?

The data is stored on a server located in Germany with complete encryption. During transmission, only encoded data, which is incomprehensible to external parties, is sent and received.
