Have you ever been in a position where you needed to talk to a doctor only for it to be the middle of the night? Or you just have a few questions about something you are experiencing but can’t get right into your doctor?  Well with Amwell you can see/speak with a doctor 24/7 right in the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere you can hook up to a mobile device such as your phone, tablet.

amwell online doctor

Amwell is easy to install: just download the app, sign in, provide your information, and get ready to consult with a live doctor. The site is easy to navigate and with the High-definition visual and audio, you can visually see and hear the physician available. I also like how the online platform lets you test your devices to make sure it’s compactable to their system.

amwell while waiting for appt

Recently I have had some issues with a bit of a skin irritation from the sun as well as some bug bites that have been quite irritating.  So I decided to get a hold of one of the doctors on Amwell’s website.  What I really enjoy about Amwell is that not only is it easy to use, but they let you know how long you will have to wait and with which doctor you will be visiting for your appointment. Although it said the average wait time was 10 minutes, it was just about half that time.

Amwell Dr Raina

As you can see the Amwell site gives me information about Dr. Raina as far as how long he has practiced as well as where he went to school. This I did like as I normally read the doctor’s licenses when I visit their office.

I explained to Dr. Raina that I had been having an irritation from a sunburn and bug bite type rash on top of it.   Before I knew it, he said that it sounded like to him it wasn’t so much the slight sunburn I had but that the insect bites were causing the overall irritation.  Since I had the slight sunburn underneath that it was making it more painful. He also agreed that it was most likely multiple mosquito bites. Which made him think I seem to have  a small allergy to mosquito bites. I provided my pharmacy number in the beginning along with other medical history and insurance information, so he could call in an antibiotic prescription if I needed one.

He did mention that if I happen to get a sunburn again, even if it was a light one I should:

Help Decrease the Inflammation:

At the first sign of sunburn, taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin, can help with discomfort and inflammation. Also to keep my skin hydrated by putting lotion on while my skin was still damp, and to reapply as the day goes on.  It is also important to make sure your lotion is not petroleum or oil based as this will not allow your skin to breathe.

For my mosquito bites:

To take care of an insect bite or sting that causes a mild reaction:
•Move to a safe area to avoid more bites or stings.
•Wash the area with soap and water.
•Apply a cool compress. Use a cloth dampened with cold water or filled with ice.
•Apply a cream, gel or lotion to the injured area. Use products containing ingredients such as hydrocortisone, pramoxine or lidocaine to help control pain. Use creams such as calamine lotion or those containing colloidal oatmeal or baking soda to help soothe itchy skin.
•Use over-the-counter medications. Try a pain reliever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), or an antihistamine (Benadryl, Chlor-Trimeton, others).

(Please note: Since I am taking the pain reliever for the sunburn I won’t take extra as it will help both issues.) Since I have both issues going on he said I could do things from both areas to help soothe the irritation I have been having.

    Honestly, it would be pretty nice to talk to a doctor at any time without having to wait for hours in a waiting room or for a call back. (Of course, I’m talking about minor things. That’s a given.)

    I love this app so much. Sometimes it’s not possible or it’s borderline dumb to drag myself all the way to the doctor but nowadays there are certain things you have to actually have an MDs face look at you, telling you what you already know, for insurance to cover a prescription.

    Amwell sounds like a wonderful service. There have been many times as a stay at home mom who does not drive, that I’ve needed a few answers from the doc, but our pediatricians office always says to bring the kids in and even my doc always says I need to come in and that they can’t give advice over the phone. This would definitely be useful.
