Today is the era of Internet . There are so many services, markets, selling and buying etc growing successfully and giving satisfactory service to the costumer over internet and online websites. Health sector is also not behind others. Today I will explain that why  internet users can trust on websites which are giving online consultation related to health problem and here my focus would be online skin consultation which is getting more popular than other branches of medicine. I would add my own experience on online consultation as being very active in tele-dermatology


WHAT IS TELE-DERMATOLOGY or ONLINE DERMATOLOGY CONSULTATION 

Now a days tele-dermatology is becoming very popular . There are so many trustworthy websites which provide skin consultation with certified and qualified dermatologist. Infect now  online health sector is growing day by day even doctors are also adding this feature in their profile. In skin tele-dermatology itself became a branch in which dermatologists learn and become professional to give satisfactory and specific answer of online queries. How ever doctor has to be very specific and precised .



IS ONLINE SKIN CONSULTATION IS USEFUL?

Well , perhaps  Skin would be the only branch where doctor do not need to touch , or examine the patients. Dermatology is the only field where doctor needs only visual assessment to identify the skin disease and enough knowledge to give advice and treatment. As per multiple studies 70% skin problems are very common like acne, fungal, psoriasis, hair fall, dark circle, eczema, dermatitis, sunburn etc which can be treated easily by seeing photos or video consultation. So answer is Yes. atleast skin related problem can be treated effectively . This also saves time, money, energy and effort too. Patients can attach photos of skin disease with proper history and can get specific answer. 

ARE DOCTORS QUALIFIED ?

Yes , All online health services, websites, apps only allow qualified, registered practitioner only. They 1st verify the doctors credentials and degrees after that only a doctor can register and give consultation. 

DO THEY KEEP PRIVACY 

Of course yes. They keep patient's  all personal information safe. As far I know no online health service never disclose patient's personal information related to disease.



DO PRESCRIPTION CONTAIN LEGAL VALUE

No, Online consultation and prescription can not be used for legal purpose. Although online consultation is very useful but it is just a second opinion and mainly used for clarifying the confusion, doubts and interpretation. Prescription can treat the person's problems but do not have any legal importance. 

WHAT ARE GOOD SITES , APPS FOR CONSULTATION?

There are many good consultation services which have many experienced doctors. These are easily asses-sable and cheaper. They provide quick, trustworthy consultation which include chat, written queries , phone and video consultation. ICLINIQ, Healthcaremagic, justdocs, lybrate, evaidhya etc are popular and good consultation services.
