Online dermatology treatment

Frequently asked questions

Can you help identify my skin rash?

You’ve got a rash but you’re not sure what it is? No problem. Rashes come in many shapes and forms – and often with many questions. During your visit you’ll tell us about your rash and upload a few images. From there, our nurse practitioners will review and provide a diagnosis & treatment plan. Many of our customers also wonder, is my rash contagious? Or do I need a prescription? We’re here to answer these questions and more, that’s why free follow-up care is included with every visit.

Can Virtuwell really diagnose my rash or skin condition without seeing me in person?

Yes, and here's why: We ask the same questions you'd hear in a doctor's office or at a dermatologist visit, but online. Many simple skin conditions are accurately diagnosed with our thorough medical interview and photo upload. If your condition is more complex, or requires a physical exam or lab work, we may recommend in person care. If that happens and we can't treat you, there is no cost for your visit.

Do I need to make an appointment for online dermatology or skin visit?

No, unlike some services that require you to set an appointment time for a video visit with a doctor, Virtuwell is an easy-to-use online interview that you can start at any time.

Can I use Virtuwell without referral to a dermatologist?

Yes! Our nurse practitioners can diagnose and treat everyday skin conditions – no referral needed. You can start a visit 24/7 from anywhere, on any device. It’s that simple.

How much is a dermatology or skin visit at Virtuwell?

You’ll pick up and pay for any prescriptions at your pharmacy, just like a typical clinic visit. Your $59 visit cost also includes free follow-up care.
