Women’s Conditions

Bacterial Vaginosis & Vaginitis

Searching for an online consultation for vaginitis? You’ve come to the right place.
Learn more about the condition and find out how GetCareMD can help treat it:

What is Vaginitis?

Like other areas of the body — such as the mouth and the gut — the vagina also has a complex ecosystem of bacteria that keep it healthy.
When the production of these bacteria is imbalanced or uncontrolled, it can cause a condition known as bacterial vaginitis. Bacterial vaginitis (BV) often causes itching, pain, and abnormal discharge.
There are the most commonly occurring types of BV:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it occurs due to a lack of healthy bacteria and extensive growth of other microorganisms.
  • Vaginal yeast infections: they’re caused by a fungus known as Candida Albicans.
  • Trichomoniasis: it’s caused by a parasite and can be transmitted from one person to another during sexual intercourse.

You can obtain professional help by scheduling a vaginitis consultation online at GetCareMD.

Symptoms of Vaginitis

The typical symptoms of vaginitis include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge (look for changes in quantity, color, or odor)
  • Vaginal irritation or itching
  • Pain or discomfort during sex and urination
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting

Any vaginal discharge can also offer clues about your vaginitis. Here’s what to look for:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it can cause a foul-smelling, grayish-white discharge. Its odor may be termed as ‘fishy’ and could be more noticeable after sexual intercourse.
  • Yeast infection: also known as candidal vaginitis, it can be identified by persistent itching and the presence of a thick white discharge that resembles cottage cheese.
  • Trichomoniasis: it causes a greenish-yellow discharge that may or may not be frothy.

If you’ve observed one of these discharges, you should set up an online consultation for vaginitis right away.

Causes of Vaginitis

There are different causes for different kinds of vaginitis:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it’s caused when the number of healthy vaginal bacteria (lactobacilli) is exceeded by the number of other bacteria (anaerobes).
  • While there’s a link between bacterial vaginosis and sex — for women with multiple sex partners or a new sex partner — remember that one doesn’t have to be sexually active to get it.
  • Yeast infections(candida vaginitis): they’re typically caused by Candida Albicans growing in uncontrolled quantities inside the vagina.
  • Trichomoniasis: it’s a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by a single-celled parasite called Trichomonas Vaginalis. This parasite enters your body during sexual intercourse with an infected person.

Birth Control

Birth control helps prevent or temporarily delay pregnancy. This includes hormonal birth control, barrier birth control, or emergency contraception. Other common methods of birth control include:

· IUD: an intrauterine T-shaped device that fits inside the uterus of a woman, lowering the chances of pregnancy to less than 1 percent.

· Vasectomy: a routine procedure that prevents pregnancy by blocking sperms from entering the semen when ejaculating.

· Tubal ligation: a surgical procedure that ties the fallopian tubes of a woman.

· Birth control implants: devices that release hormones by going under the skin to prevent pregnancy.

Online consultation for birth control at GetCareMD starts at just $39. All you need to do is choose your health concern and respond to brief questions. GetCareMD’s medical professional will then get started by reviewing your medical history and provided information after the birth control consultation online session, and get back to you within an hour with a solution for managing birth control.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) – Women

Do you need an online consultation for UTI? The experts at GetCareMD are here to help.

Find out more about the condition and how we can treat it:

A UTI is an infection in your urinary system, which includes:

  • Kidneys
  • Ureters
  • Urinary bladder
  • Urethra

While a UTI may affect any of these organs, most infections are limited to the bladder and urethra.

Women are far more susceptible to UTIs than men.

If you have milder symptoms, consider setting up a UTI consultation online without delay.

However, if you have preexisting conditions or severe symptoms, seek in-person emergency treatment from your nearest hospital.

Symptoms of UTI

Generally, symptoms of UTIs include:

  • A constant need to urinate
  • Pain, discomfort, or a burning sensation while urinating
  • Urine that has a cloudy, opaque appearance
  • Urine that’s tinged with red or bright pink colors, indicating the presence of blood
  • Urine that has an abnormal or unusually strong smell
  • Pelvic pain and discomfort

If you’ve caught one or more of these symptoms, you should schedule an online consultation for UTI right away.

Vaginal Yeast Infection

Need an online consultation for vaginal yeast infection? Trust GetCareMD to provide it.

Learn more about the condition and how we can help treat it:

A vaginal yeast infection is a very common fungal infection that can affect as many as 3 out of 4 women. The yeast (fungus) responsible for this is called Candida Albicans.
The infection occurs when hormonal changes, medication, or immune system issues allow the Candida Albicans to grow excessively.

Vaginal yeast infection is also known as

  • Thrush
  • Candidal vaginitis
  • Vaginal candidiasis
  • Vulvovaginal candidiasis

During a test for vaginal yeast infection, a small sample of your vaginal discharge is examined for the presence of fungal culture.

While it’s not a prerequisite for scheduling a vaginal yeast infection consultation online, we urge you to get tested beforehand.

This will allow us to design the most effective treatment plan for you.

Symptoms of Vaginal Yeast Infection

The symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection vary in severity and include:

  • Irritation and itching in the vagina and the vulva (the outer part of female genitalia)
  • Burning, redness, and swelling of the vulva
  • Pain or discomfort during urination and intercourse
  • Vaginal pain, rashes, and soreness
  • Watery, abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Thick, odorless discharge that’s white in color and resembles cottage cheese

In your online consultation for vaginal yeast infection, your infection may be categorized as complicated if:

  • You find sores, tears, and cracks in the vaginal walls
  • Your other symptoms are extremely intense and painful
  • You have recurring yeast infections (four or more in a year)

Men’s Conditions

Epididymitis in Men

The epididymis is a coiled tube found behind your testicles; it’s prone to infections and inflammation, which can be quite painful and have many long-and short-term effects. Almost always due to a bacterial infection, signs and symptoms generally include abdominal and scrotal pain and inflammation, pain with urination, and discharge from the urethra.

Testing prior to starting treatment is not necessary, however, we recommend that our patients opt for a test in case treatment is not effective. All of our consultations and treatments are kept fully confidential.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition wherein a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection for the duration of sexual intercourse. ED can be attributed to multiple physiological and psychological causes, including low testosterone levels, untreated depression, drug and alcohol use, specific prescription medications, and various health conditions, including diabetes. Treating ED may require your healthcare provider to address these concerns and deep-rooted issues; however, we only treat ED in patients over the age of 25.

Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a relatively common health condition that results in difficulty or inability to prevent or delay the release of semen during sexual intercourse. Typically, for it to be categorized as PE, the release of seminal fluid must be within one minute of sexual activity. Occasional PE is also common, and isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, but when chronic PE occurs, it requires professional medical treatment and intervention. As a condition it is easy to treat, so long as a patient is over the age of 25.

PE and erectile dysfunction (ED) tend to present simultaneously, making treatment for both necessary, especially in the use of prescription treatments as a recommended course of action. Visit our services page, select erectile dysfunction and get redirected to PE.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) – Men

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a fairly common condition which occurs due to bacteria found in the urethra, making its way to the bladder. It’s often termed as a bladder infection or known as cystitis and tends to affect women more than men, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.

However, we are unable to treat patients who have more serious, severe symptoms, such as fever, excruciating pain, vomiting, and other indications of a rapidly progressing infection. Patients with preexisting kidney problems or bladder conditions will require more specialized care and treatment or opt for urgent care clinics and hospitals.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Chlamydia

Need an online consultation for chlamydia? Count on GetCareMD.
Learn more about the condition and how we can help you overcome it.
Chlamydia — also known as chlamydia trachomatis — can often be confused with gonorrhea, as they both present with similar symptoms.
Chlamydia usually affects young, sexually active women. However, it can be found in men and women of all age groups. Similar to gonorrhea, it can sometimes be asymptomatic.
The bacteria that causes chlamydia is typically spread from one person to another through vaginal, oral, or anal sex.
Though testing is not a prerequisite for your chlamydia consultation online, we strongly encourage you to get tested.
Based on your test results, we can give you the most effective treatment and care possible.

Symptoms of Chlamydia

Detecting chlamydia early without a positive test result can be difficult, since it doesn’t show symptoms right away.
The most common symptom is difficult or painful urination.
Other symptoms in women include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Difficulty or pain during intercourse
  • Post-coital bleeding
  • Bleeding between periods

In men, chlamydia may cause:

  • Abnormal discharge from the penis
  • Testicular pain, inflammation, or discomfort

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, get tested and schedule your online consultation for chlamydia today.

Chlamydia & Gonorrhea

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two of the most commonly sexually transmitted diseases. Both share common symptoms that include painful, burning urination, inflammation, and discharge, which may be white, yellow or green.

While testing is not a prerequisite to treatment, it is recommended that patients get tested in order to check for effectiveness of the treatment. We ensure confidentiality for all our consultation and treatment services.

Genital Herpes

Genital herpes is an infection that primarily spreads through sexual contact; it’s caused due to the herpes simplex virus that causes itchiness, soreness, or pain in the genitalia. In addition, both men and women may develop sores around the mouth, anus, buttocks, thighs, and urethra. For men, the penis or scrotum and for women, the vaginal area, cervix, or external genitals are also susceptible to sores.

Other complications commonly associated with genital herpes include bladder implications, meningitis, rectal inflammation, newborn infection, or other sexually transmitted infections. Unfortunately, recurrences aren’t uncommon to genital herpes as they may keep recurring for years.

You can now get started with genital herpes consultation online at GetCareMD for as low as $39. Simply select online consultation for genital herpes, answer brief questions regarding the symptoms you’re experiencing. Within one hour, a GetCareMD’s health care professional direct your medical history and provided information to a pharmacy where you can collect your prescribed medications.

Gonorrhea

Need an online consultation for gonorrhea? You’ve come to the right place.
Learn more about the condition and how GetCareMD can help:
Gonorrhea is a fairly common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that affects both men and women.
The gonorrhea bacteria — known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae— are typically passed from one person to another via vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse.
Its symptoms can show up in different areas of the body. In certain cases, gonorrhea infection may not cause any symptoms at all.
Getting yourself tested is not a prerequisite to availing a gonorrhea consultation online.
However, we strongly encourage you to get tested, as it will enable us to give you the most effective treatment and care possible.

Symptoms of Gonorrhea

In men, gonorrhea infection may cause:

  • Pain or difficulty in urination
  • Abnormal discharge from the penis
  • Inflammation or pain in one testicle

In women, common symptoms of gonorrhea include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pain or difficulty in urination
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding between periods
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain

In both men and women, symptoms of gonorrhea can also show up elsewhere in the body:

  • You may experience eye pain, increased sensitivity to light, and pus-like discharge from either one or both eyes.
  • You may get a sore throat or swollen, painful lymph nodes.
  • You might face difficulty in bowel movements or notice blood in stool, a discharge from the rectum, and anal itching.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, schedule an online consultation for gonorrhea today.

Syphilis

People who have sex with multiple partners or have unprotected sex are at an increased risk of contracting syphilis. The Treponema pallidum bacterium enters the body through abrasions or cuts in the mucous membrane or skin during sexual intercourse with an infected person’s sore. Syphilis is contagious during the primary and secondary stages; it may also spread in the early latent period through direct unprotected contact.

Syphilis left untreated can damage the human body by increasing the risk of HIV infection. Moreover, in women, syphilis may cause complications during pregnancy. Early diagnosis can help prevent future damage.

Online consultation for syphilis at GetCareMD starts at just $39. You can now choose your medical condition, respond to brief questions regarding the symptoms you’re experiencing, and GetCareMD’s medical professional will review your medical history and provided information, following an hour after the syphilis consultation online. We’ll get back to you with a prescription.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is another commonly transmitted sexual disease caused as a result of being infected by Trichomonas vaginalis. In 2018, there were close to 2 million trichomoniasis infections, but only 30 percent developed any symptoms, most of which were older women. Moreover, women are infected in the lower genital tract, which causes vaginal discharge, urination discomfort, or itching of the genitals, while men experience penis discharge, irritation, and burning after ejaculation.

GetCareMD’s online consultation for trichomoniasis starts at as low as $39. Begin by selecting your medical condition or health concern and respond to brief questions regarding the symptoms you’re experiencing. Our health care professionals will review your medical history and study your symptoms in the hour following the trichomoniasis consultation online. You can then collect the prescribed medications from a pharmacy of your choice.

Psychiatry

Depression

Depression is a mental health condition and is also categorized as a mood disorder in the DSM V. Typically, patients chronically exhibit a depressed mood, experience hopelessness, general apathy, and disinterest. When left untreated, especially for extended periods of time, depression leads to multiple issues and complications, including suicidal ideation, difficulty or inability in carrying out day to day chores, errands and tasks, and several health challenges as a result of poor due to changes in sleep patterns and dietary habits.

General Anxiety

Almost everyone experiences anxiety on some level, as it’s the body’s response to feelings of stress, fear, uneasiness, and tension. It’s accompanied by an increased heart rate, sweating, difficulty breathing, and concentration. People that experience these symptoms regularly or for no apparent reason suffer from General Anxiety Disorder, which is a mood and mental disorder. Consistent feelings of anxiety can disturb a person’s way of living and harm their progress. Experts recommend counseling and therapy for generalized anxiety disorder, paired with healthy coping mechanisms.

Acute Gout

Are you looking for an online consultation for Gout? GetCareMD is here to help!
Learn all about the condition and how GetCareMD can help.

What is Gout?

Gout is a type of inflammatory arthritis that can be excruciatingly painful. Excessively high uric acid levels begin to build up in your foot joints (particularly affecting your big toe). Gout attacks or flares are characterized by swelling, pain, tenderness, and inflammation in one or more joints of your foot.

Symptoms of Gout

Gout flares can begin suddenly and last a few days or even a few weeks. These symptoms can go into remission for a few days or even months. You might not see or feel any of the symptoms between these gout flares.
If you are suffering from acute Gout, you might experience symptoms like;

  • Severe joint pain
  • Limited joint mobility
  • Lasting discomfort in the big toe or other affected joints in the body
  • Intense inflammation and redness near the affected joints
  • The affected joint feels excessively warm. Gout-affected joints can feel as if they are on fire.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, schedule an online consultation for Gout with our doctors at GetCareMD.

Am I at Risk for Gout?

Men are at a higher risk of developing Gout. However, most menopausal women can develop Gout as there’s an increase in uric acid levels in their bodies post-menopause.
You might be at risk of developing Gout if;

  • You are overweight, and your body produces excessive levels of uric acid.
  • You consume a diet that is rich in red meat and beverages that are laden with fruit, sugar, or fructose. Alcohol consumption can also increase your chances of developing Gout.
  • In some people, surgery or even vaccination can trigger the onset of gout flares.
  • Having a family history of developing Gout can also put you at risk for this condition.
  • Medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart and kidney diseases, and metabolic syndromes can contribute to the development of Gout.
  • Certain medications such as aspirin, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers, and hypertension controlling diuretics can increase uric acid levels and lead to gout flares.

If you suffer from any of these risk factors, schedule an online consultation for Gout with GetCareMD.

Complications

Gout is a highly treatable condition; however, it can lead to other medical complications if left untreated.

  • Joint damage: Regular inflammation and swelling of the affected joints can lead to stiffness and damage in joints or cartilage.
  • Tophi: When urate crystals begin to accumulate and harden under the skin. If left untreated, tophi can lead to intense pain and joint or cartilage deformity.
  • Kidney stones: An excessive amount of urate crystals can build up in the kidney and lead to kidney stones.
  • Kidney disease or Kidney failure: If Gout is left untreated and stones are allowed to build up in the kidney, it can lead to scarring and even kidney failure.

Cold & Flu

The flu (influenza) and the common cold are two very common viral respiratory infections. They share many symptoms, such as headaches, sore throats, lethargy, and coughing. Treatments include anti-flu medications, decongestants, and cough medication. If you’re struggling with the common cold or flu, our healthcare professionals can help you out.

Coldsores

Cold sores (fever blisters or Herpes Simplex Labialis are some other names for them) refer to sets of small, painful blisters around the mouth caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus. Cold sores are uncomfortable and painful. The earlier a person gets treatment for them, the quicker they heal and the less discomfort they experience. If you have cold sores, contact us, and we’ll recommend a treatment plan.

Constipation

Constipation refers to a situation in which a person finds it difficult to pass stool, experiences infrequent bowel movements, or has hard and dry stool. The typical causes are dietary changes and insufficient fiber intake. Periodic constipation is easily treated with OTC solutions, but chronic constipation requires more specific solutions. If you’re dealing with constipation, contact us, and we’ll help you out.

 

 

Ear Infection

Ear infections refer to inflammation of the middle, inner, or outer ear that can lead to pain and discomfort. They also refer to fluid buildup in the middle ear – the area behind the eardrum. These can be chronic or acute, both of which are painful. The former can lead to permanent ear damage. If you’re experiencing any ear pain, schedule a consultation with us.

Eyelash Growth

Though most people are born with a healthy set of eyelashes, not everyone is satisfied with the length of their eyelashes. Fortunately, extensions aren’t the only remedy for their concerns. There are many serums that can encourage eyelash growth.

To get a prescription, contact us at GetCareMD.com.

Nausea & Vomiting

Nausea refers to the feeling of disgust that typically precedes vomiting. Both are symptoms of many kinds of infections. The primary concern with vomiting is dehydration; this can be prevented by controlling the urge to vomit through medication.

Vomiting can lead to a loss of important nutrients, so contact us to quickly treat it.

Pain Relief

Pain relief consultations typically begin with an attempt to narrow down the cause and kind of pain patients are experiencing. Pain comes in many forms, such as headaches, joint inflammation, menstrual cramps, fractures, and more. Treatment is tailored accordingly.

To alleviate your pain, schedule a consultation with us.

 

 

Pink Eye

Seeking an online consultation for pink eye? Trust the capable medical professionals of GetCareMD.
Learn more about the condition and find out how we can help:
The insides of our eyelids are lined with a thin, clear tissue known as the conjunctiva. It also lies over the white area (sclera) of our eyes.
Pink eye — also called conjunctivitis or pinkeye — is what happens when the conjunctiva becomes inflamed.
While adults can get it, it’s typically associated with children.
Even though it’s extremely contagious, it isn’t serious if caught and treated in time.
Protecting yourself from any long-term damages of pink eye is as easy as scheduling a pinkeye consultation online and following the doctor’s instructions.

Symptoms of Pink Eye

Common symptoms of pink eye can be observed in one or both eyes:

  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Thick discharge that can harden into a crust overnight and make it difficult to open your eyes in the morning
  • Burning sensation
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased light sensitivity

If you’re observing one or more of these symptoms, it’s best to opt for an online consultation for pinkeye so that you don’t need to see your eye doctor in person.

Causes of Pink Eye

Pink eye can be caused by a range of factors, which include:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • An allergic reaction
  • Parasites, fungi, and amoeba
  • Irritants, like shampoos, chlorine in swimming pools, and dirt

Certain sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — such as gonorrhea and chlamydia — can also cause pink eye.

Rashes & Itching

Rashes refer to any red eruption of the skin, leading to itchiness and irritation. Both rashes and irritations are symptoms of different conditions, such as allergies and eczema. Treatment typically involves antifungal and viral medication, topical ointments, and more.

Schedule a consultation to treat your symptoms.

Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies are also known as hay fever. They refer to allergy symptoms that occur at particular points in the year. The causes are typically the release of mold spores, as well as the release of pollen to fertilize other plants. The symptoms include sneezing, itching, congestion, and more.

To treat your allergies, schedule a consultation with our professionals.

Shingles

Also known as Herpes Zoster, shingles refers to a viral infection that causes a rash (usually on one side of the body), with associated nerve pain. The condition comes from the Varicella Zoster virus – the virus that also leads to chickenpox. Treatment aims to control the infection and reduce the pain and inflammation.

Meet with one of our healthcare professionals to treat shingles.

Sinus Infection

Also known as Sinusitis, sinus infections refer to swelling or inflammation of the tissue that lines the sinuses. When the sinuses are blocked, the germs and fluid in them can cause infections. Treatment leads to quick improvements in comfort and alleviates pain.

Schedule a consultation with our healthcare professionals to treat your infection.

Strep Throat

Strep throat (pharyngitis) is a bacterial infection. It leads to patients developing a sore, painful throat, and the formation of small nodules in your throat, in addition to a cough. Can’t tell if you have strep throat? You can check the back of your throat in a mirror. Redness and/or white spots, indicate that you have strep throat and should reach out to us.

Toothache/Tooth Infection

Are you looking for an online consultation for tooth infection? GetCareMD has the right solution for you!
Learn more about this dental condition and how GetCareMD can help.
A tooth infection or tooth abscess is the buildup of bacteria and pus in and around the teeth. A tooth infection can affect teeth and gums and cause pain that radiates to the jaw, neck, and even the ear.
If left untreated, tooth infections can become severe and spread to the other parts of the body.

Symptoms of Tooth Infection

A tooth infection can be characterized by signs and symptoms such as;

  • Sensitivity to cold or hot temperature
  • An excruciating toothache can be felt in the affected tooth, jawbones, and sometimes till the ear.
  • Tenderness or swelling in the jaws or neck area
  • Experience foul-tasting fluid if the abscess ruptures.
  • Find it difficult to swallow
  • Difficulty chewing or biting

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, get in touch with GetCareMD to schedule an online consultation for tooth infection.

Risk Factors for Tooth Infection

  • Not practicing proper dental hygiene: Not brushing teeth twice a day and not flossing regularly can lead to toothaches, dental infections, and other dental complications.
  • Dry mouth: Having a dry mouth due to specific medication or just old age can contribute to the development of tooth abscess.
  • Excessive consumption of sugar-rich foods and beverages: A sugar-rich diet can lead to dental cavities, which might transform into a tooth infection.

If you are at risk of developing tooth infection, book an online consultation for tooth infection at GetCareMD.

Complications Associated With Tooth Infection

A tooth infection requires proper dental treatment. If the tooth abscess ruptures, it might relieve pressure and pain but should not be left untreated. The tooth infection can spread to your jaw and the neck region and cause further complications.
Moreover, an untreated tooth abscess can lead to sepsis, an acute infection that can spread throughout the body.

Upper Respiratory Infection

Upper respiratory infections (URI) are infections that take place in the upper respiratory tract. Patients with URI experience multiple symptoms, such as chest congestion, sneezing, runny nose, dry or wet coughing, fever, and more. Sore throat and headaches are also common symptoms of these conditions, which can be managed and treated fairly easily.

Weight Loss

Weight loss treatment and management, both via medications and other treatment plans can go a long way in helping those who struggle in maintaining a healthy weight. These medications and interventions are aimed toward reducing excess body fat and curbing future weight gain by acting as appetite suppressants.

Travel Health

Malaria Prevention

Malaria is a life-threatening illness that’s contracted via a mosquito bite from a mosquito carrying the plasmodium parasite. When traveling to a place where the disease is common, visitors risk contracting malaria. As a result, many countries recommend or require travelers to take preventative medicine. If you’re planning to travel, schedule a consultation with us to make sure you remain healthy throughout.

Motion Sickness & Vertigo

Motion sickness refers to disturbances in the inner ear due to repeated motion (such as in a vehicle). Vertigo, similarly, refers to the sensation of feeling off-balance or as if you’re about to fall due to the inner ear being disturbed. Both conditions are typically the result of prolonged travel and cause nausea and vomiting. If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, contact us, and our healthcare providers will assist you.

Other

Acne

As the hair follicles begin to trap and dead skin cells, pustules, papules, blackheads, and whiteheads start to develop. This is commonly referred to as acne. Acne is harmless, but it can be slightly painful in general and more so with deeper acne. It can lead to self-esteem and other social issues for people. In many cases, acne can go away on its own, but with the proper treatment, you can ensure that it fades away properly. Not getting acne treatment can cause some of the scars to remain prominent later on.

You can get online consultation for acne at GetCareMD for as low as $39. Simply select the option for online consultation for acne and answer some of the questions. Within one hour, GetCareMD’s health care consultant will get in touch with you, recommending you the necessary techniques and solutions to help treat your acne.

Dandruff

Dandruff refers to a condition where white scales of dead skin are shed from the scalp (these shed scales are also known as dandruff). Dandruff can lead to itchy scalps and make one’s hair look unclean and unsightly. If you repeatedly see dandruff on your hair, our healthcare professionals are here to help.

Insomnia

Insomnia refers to a sleep disorder that’s marked by difficulty sleeping. The disorder can either occur as a primary condition or as a symptom of another issue. Insomnia can disrupt peoples’ lives due to inadequate rest and recovery. If you’re suffering from insomnia, our healthcare providers can help you allay the condition.

Smoking Cessation

Quitting smoking is particularly difficult due to the withdrawal symptoms experienced by your body in the aftermath. Leaving smoking cold turkey is seldom a good and sustainable way to leave the habit. Medicines can ease the withdrawal and slowly return your body to homeostasis. If you’ve decided to quit, schedule a consultation to ensure you actualize your decision.
