One day, while you are in the shower or in the kitchen, you notice something on your skin which you had not noticed before. It has an appearance which is worrisome to you. You show the skin finding to your spouse, friend, or co-worker; however, they can only give you their support. They cannot tell you if this finding on your skin is something which is important or something which can wait for your yearly physical exam with your doctor.

It Keeps Worrying You

As days pass, the spot on your skin continues to worry you. Your regular check-up visit with your doctor is – maybe – 6 months away and you wish you could somehow know if this new finding on your skin is something which needs attention sooner than that.

Peace of Mind - A Friend tells you about

A friend tells you about You take out your cellular telephone/smartphone and download the free SkinExam app and create an account on Then, with the camera in your cell phone you take as many as three pictures of the finding on your skin which is worrying you and upload the photograph(s) of the problem on your skin, which is worrying you, to your SkinExam account. You provide some small descriptions for each picture that you submit in order to help the Dermatology Professionals to better understand what they are seeing. The descriptions you can provide with each picture are such things as

1) How long has this finding been there on your skin?

2) Is it itchy?

3) Does it hurt when you press on it?

4) Has the finding on your skin become darker or lighter with the passing days? And other information which you feel may help the Dermatology Professionals to have a better understanding of what they are seeing in your pictures. Then, within a day or two – sometimes even sooner - a certified, licensed, experienced, Dermatology Professional will review the pictures of your skin problem and your descriptions and will tell you if this is something which is of concern and needs to be seen in person by a skin professional or not.

May I see the Dermatology Professional who read my Pictures in person?
