First Derm is an anonymous process. Once the case is submitted, a dermatologist responds within a 24- hour time frame, but average response time is within six hours. The answer is general information with a possible diagnosis and possible suggestions for self- treatment when appropriate. It does not create a physician-patient relationship, and is not a diagnosis or a treatment plan, for which your personal physician should be consulted.
The First Derm app is available today as an iPhone version and can be downloaded for free. Users will pay the fee of $39.99 (€29.99 or SEK 260) for each case that is submitted for assessment. However during a three-month launch period the price is $15 (€11 or SEK 99) to submit a case.
