Dermatologists can care for most common skin, hair, and nail issues by seeing photos and a description of the condition. You will answer a few basic questions, provide a brief medical history, describe your symptoms, and upload photos of the condition you are seeking treatment for. Within 72 hours – and usually within 24 hours – you are notified of your diagnosis and treatment plan from a board-certified dermatologist. Prescriptions, if appropriate, will be sent to your local pharmacy.

In addition, you may submit a message to your dermatologist for up to 30 days after your appointment through the portal if you have an additional question or comment – at no additional cost.

MDLIVE dermatologists are trained to diagnose and treat over 3,000 medical conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include but are not limited to acne, dermatitis, eczema, folliculitis, psoriasis, rosacea, and more.

Dermatology is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, even on holidays. Dermatology is a convenient alternative to commuting to a dermatologist’s office and helps avoid a lengthy wait for an in-office appointment.

Adults and minors under the age of 18 can be seen with parent or guardian consent.

Please note that pregnant or nursing mothers, or those trying to become pregnant, are not permitted to conduct a dermatology appointment. Dermatology services are not to be used in the event of an emergency. In case of a life-threatening medical emergency, dial 911 immediately.

While most issues are successfully resolved online, the doctor may determine that an in-office appointment is needed for a more accurate diagnosis or to best address the condition. That in-office appointment would be outside of MDLIVE Dermatology services, and payment or insurance coverage for those services would be separate. Patients who cannot be treated online are fully refunded the cost for their MDLIVE appointment.

Your employer’s benefits will apply to these appointments. Your appointment cost will be displayed before starting an appointment.

We have the largest national network of dermatologists certified by the American Board of Dermatology or the American Osteopathic Association. All dermatologists live in the United States and only see patients in states for which they are licensed. Each dermatologist is credentialed according to NCQA guidelines.

Yes. You may select any dermatologist in our network who is licensed to practice in your state. If you are currently seeing a dermatologist and they are in our network, you may select that doctor — or pick someone new. If you choose “no preference,” you will be treated by the next available dermatologist licensed to practice in your state.

You may submit questions via message to your online dermatologist for up to 30 days after your appointment through the MDLIVE portal at no extra cost if you have an additional question. Simply follow the same login process and click on “Start/Resume Appointment,” where you will see the option to message your doctor.

No. Each appointment covers the review, diagnosis, and treatment plan for one condition of the skin, hair, or nails.
