Joe S. Moore ,


THANK YOU. I received a response in under two hours stating pityriasis rosea. At work, I was advised to go to an Urgent Care facility where they looked at one little area of my rash for 5 seconds and stated it was definitely fungus and gave me Nystatin as treatment. It didn't seem correct so I got in to see a dermatologist. GUESS WHAT? Immediately the dermatologist stated it was definitely NOT fungus and it was most likely pityriasis rosea. Ha! Thank you!!!! Clearly First Derm is VERY reliable and I received this original response in under two hours and for less money! Definitely remembering this for the future..

Thank you for your account. Happy to help. Skin diseases can be challenging sometimes for non-dermatologists.

Loved this app

I had a rough patch of skin that I went to two Doctors to diagnose what is was. This was worrying me so I just was browsing around and found this app searching for something to help. I chose the option to get an answer in 8 hours which was a bit pricier but well worth it to have a response. The Doctor sent a response back to me within two hours. This is such a nice app to have especially when it takes forever to get an appointment to see a dermatologist. Thank you for your quick response and information on how to solve this problem over-the-counter. Very helpful and I would definitely try this again.

Better than the pediatrician!

My son developed an odd circular rash last week on his temple. My wife took him to our pediatrician and they told her not to worry about it and that we should consider changes to his diet, which hasn’t changed in the last 6 months and he has had no other issues since. Before seeking a referral to a dermatologist we tried First Derm. The app confirmed that it was in fact a fungal infection that needed a topical ointment. We started treatment a few days ago and it’s already starting to clear up. Thanks for saving us the time, money, and pain of letting this linger!!
