Imagine this: You just hopped out of the shower and are drying off when you notice a rough, scaly-looking patch on your elbow that you’ve never seen before. What is it and what can you do about it? It could be a form of psoriasis, a common skin condition. While a variety of factors — including stress — can contribute to a breakout, psoriasis can be treated. And don’t worry, it’s not contagious.

What do you do now? Let Teladoc help with diagnosis and treatment. Through our Dermatology service, you can receive expert skin care quickly and confidentially. Teladoc’s board-certified dermatologists treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including

  • Acne
  • Athletes foot
  • Eczema

  • Lice
  • Moles
  • Psoriasis

Did you know that skin is the body’s biggest organ? It’s the fastest-growing too, so it changes over time and deserves to be cared for and protected just like we care for our eyes and hearts. Teladoc Dermatology is available on mobile app and web. The process is quick and easy:

  • Log into your account and request a Dermatology consult
  • Answer a few questions about your condition
  • Take up to three photos of your skin condition and upload them for the doctor to view. (QuickTip: Try taking a picture of the overall affected area, and one or two close-up photos of different parts of the area.)

Within two business days you’ll receive a response from the dermatologist. And if you haven’t already selected your pharmacy in your profile, go ahead and do that when you set up your consult. If medication is necessary, Teladoc can send the prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
