Many telemedicine services offer virtual dermatology because it helps telemedicine users to find out whether they have common skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, fungal infections, hives (urticaria), seborrheic dermatitis, actinic keratosis (AK) or sun damage. Telemedicine service providers also allow telehealth users to see dermatologists about more serious skin conditions like suspected or diagnosed melanoma (which is a type of skin cancer).
Typically, tele-dermatology involves careful clinical history, case monitoring and teleconsultation. Virtual appointments can take place in real time or be recorded, and telemedicine users may receive telehealth services from the comfort of their own homes.
Telemedicine has been used successfully in telemonitoring skin conditions like psoriasis, acne, atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis.
Skin telemonitoring and teleconsultation services may also be able to help telehealth patients who need to see a specialist about more serious skin conditions.
A telemedicine service provider that provides telehealth can provide necessary medical treatment for rare diseases or could even work with insurance companies to ensure coverage for your treatment if they choose to consult the doctor through telemedicine rather than visiting an office in person.
The use of telemedicine is not limited to dermatology needs, but it can be particularly useful when diagnosing or treating chronic distressing problems such as certain types of acne, eczema and psoriasis as well as other skin conditions that require expert personalized reviews.
