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.

Gave me peace of mind
SO glad I used this app! Had a brown spot on my arm that was looking “odd” to my untrained eye and then all the sudden it turned red. 😳
When I did a little research online, I was worried it might be skin cancer. Couldn’t get a dermo app’t for 5 weeks. Then I remembered years ago, on Doctor Radio, hearing about an app like this (idk if it’s the same) so I downloaded it.
So, so happy with this app. Easy to use and understand. Got my results back and it’s not cancer. Keeping my dermo app’t but at least I don’t have to worry and wonder.
Many thanks everyone for the app and all the hard work.
