Skin Rash Telemedicine Skills


How to master skin rashes on telemedicine visits.

Category: Tag:


Dermatologic complaints are popular on telemedicine. Let’s talk about skin rash telemedicine conditions and how to manage them. I’ll discuss common medications and what to look out for. We’ll discuss concerning skin complaints as well – as in, red flags in derm.

Listen to the whole thing. It’s worth the money and you’ll get an insight into how I think through common skin/derm complaints and whom I send them to for follow up, if at all needed.

You’ll also become comfortable with what’s and emergency and what’s not. Because most skin rash telemedicine complaints can be handled quite easily with home/self management. Patient empowerment will make both you and the patient feel better.
