If you are concerned about a particular skin issue like a rash or spot, but are too shy to ask a dermatologist, First Derm is the perfect solution. The online dermatological service allows you to anonymously submit a photo of your skin and receive an opinion from a board-certified dermatologist within 24 hours. To get screened, simply send a picture with a description. An account or registration is not required and the response will go directly to your phone.

The app also provides a skin guide, so you can safely learn about common conditions from a legitimate source. It also helps you find your closest dermatologist, pediatrician and pharmacy using geolocating technology. The anonymity makes it easier for people to ask a dermatologist, especially if they are worried about sexually transmitted diseases.
