Decent app

Dermatologists here gave me a basic diagnosis, which wasn’t wrong. But my case was a difficult one, even my GP’s couldn’t diagnose so definitely needed a f2f skin examination. They diagnosed me here with lichenification which was the case but more of a secondary issue due to my main issue of seb derm, a very bad flare up which a private GP specialising in derm diagnosed me with a dermascope, along with many tests from GP. Grateful for the effort tho, they did spend a good amount of time so I’m sure they asked around before they arrived at my diagnosis here so I’m grateful they tried and provided me with a source of help when no one seemed to understand

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Normally we manage to resolve 80% of cases. In your case we hope we helped you to have a better prepared discussion with your GP.
