Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas Eve to all of you who celebrate! One of the greatest gifts that I gave to myself this year was clear skin.
I have struggled with hormonal, cystic acne for the better part of the past two years and earlier this year I knew that what I had been doing wasn’t working. After trying many over the counter products, changing my skincare routine several times, as well as trying several medications through my primary care physician with no improvement, I decided that it really was time to get a dermatologist’s opinion. However, I am completing my medical school rotations in a very rural area where we have limited access to a dermatologist– the wait to get in as a new patient was eight months!
So, I started researching e-medicine services, websites or apps where you could securely consult a physician either by video or message and photos without needing to see them in person. Ultimately, I decided to try YoDerm after reading a few positive reviews.
