I've been struggling with a skin issue for 2 years. My Dermatologist is unreachable/expensive, and online searches yielded nothing close to what I was experiencing. FINALLY I got my answer! It's been about a week, and using their recommended treatment, the issue is almost completely gone. So happy I can feel comfortable in a swimsuit. Extra advice though; it might not show your problem has been answered until you click the case file. If you're waiting for an answer, click the file to check!

I had a skin problem in hands that was getting worse. I was desperate, I try different creams but get even worse. I used First Derm because they say their response is fast and delivered by dermatologist online and I have to say, it was better than expected. They responded me in 3 hours, telling me I had a fungal condition and recommend me a topical cream. It helped me avoid waiting lists and the accuracy of their answer and recommendation was beyond good!

‼️BEWARE‼️ if you have a skin condition that is simple like acne or eczema; I'm sure this app will be fabulous for you. I have something more extreme & spent $60 & got my answer 2 days later not in 8 hours. They told me nothing!!! Don't waste your money or your time; find another application past this one ❗ A response of I don't know would have been acceptable.
