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..

Developer Response ,

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.
