Hold the rash up to the phone."
Communicating the details of a skin rash can be a real challenge for both physicians and patients, especially after hours or over the phone.
iRash is a tool designed to help reduce those frustrations. It may be used in two main ways.
For physicians and other medical providers, iRash is a basic dermatology reference to over 40 common skin conditions, with basics of causation, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as a representative image. It may be used to assist your own clinical judgment in establishing a diagnosis or as a patient educational aide.
For patients, iRash may be used to assist communicating information to your health care provider. Instead of calling and saying, "My child has a rash," you may be able to say, "My child has a rash and I think it might be urticaria."
Rashes are organized both alphabetically and by descriptive category (Red Rashes, Brown Spots, Lumps and Bumps, etc.)
iRash is to be used only by or in consultation with a licensed health care provider, whose judgment it is intended to supplement and not replace. See inclosed information and disclaimer for additional detail.
iRash is NOT compatible with the 1st generation iPod Touch.
