Doctors give advice on dermatology via MMS


Got a skin related condition and considering whether you should take a few hours off from work to go see your doctor? Well, from now on, all you have to do to get a first opinion from a doctor is to snap a photo with your cell phone and send it to iDoc24 via MMS to 72500. Experts in dermatology promise to get back to you with a reply within 24 hours with advice on for example the patient should seek self-treatment or go see a doctor.

iDoc24 is a new Swedish service which is a complement to the traditional health care system. The cost for the service is currently 10 kronor per MMS. The user can be completely anonymous which may be an additional advantage if your skin problems are located on a part of your body that you prefer to keep private.
