Teledermatology Services

If you have a rash, acne, or other skin concern, UPMC has two teledermatology options to connect you with a dermatology expert:

  • eDermatology.
  • Video visits.

Is a Teledermatology Visit Right for Me?

Doctors can diagnose many common and uncommon skin issues from a digital photo or video visit, such as:

  • Acne.
  • Hives.
  • Moles.
  • Rashes.
  • Rosacea.
  • Skin growths.

eDermatology versus Video Visit with a Dermatologist

If you are a Pennsylvania resident, you have access to both eDermatology and video visits with a dermatology provider. A video visit connects you with a provider who can walk through your concerns in real-time. With eDermatology, you simply upload photos and a dermatology provider follow ups with a diagnosis and prescription, if necessary. Prescriptions can be sent to any pharmacy in Pennsylvania. 

To schedule a video visit with your dermatologist, log in or create a MyUPMC account.

Video Visit with a Dermatologist

With a video visit, you can make a real-time video appointment with a dermatology expert.

Your doctor is able to do an exam much like they would in person. They'll be able to see and assess your skin concerns by using video and photos. Photos are required prior to the video visit.
