This season can also be incredibly difficult for parents whose children are more prone to illness than others, but fortunately, modern technology and the internet have enabled people from across the world to consult a doctor online and receive an instant diagnosis and treatment for most childhood diseases and other illnesses like Impetigo.
Impetigo, however widespread, is a bacterial skin infection that is not only highly contagious but primarily affects babies and young children. However, teenagers and adults with compromised immune systems are also at risk. The most common diagnosis is characterised by blisters with a honey-coloured crust that commonly appear around the nose and mouth, which subsequently spreads to the hands, feet, and other body parts.
Impetigo is caused by either Staphylococcus aureus or by Streptococcus, but the good news is that it is manageable and can be fully controlled with the correct medication. Following a diagnosis by one of TapGP's skilled and experienced online doctors, they can prescribe a topical antibiotic cream or ointment, which prescription will be sent to the patient's nearest pharmacy for pickup. An oral antibiotic may also be administered, depending on the severity, especially in situations of large-scale epidemics or ecthyma. The sooner Impetigo is identified and treated, the better.
“Impetigo treatment is just one example of the many different kinds of treatment we offer to online patients,” Dr. Hathi, the co-founder, and CEO of TapGP said in response.
“We provide on-demand healthcare and medical treatment to a wide spectrum of individuals through online consultations. tapGP is suitable for patients in the UK or abroad who need to consult with a medical doctor or clinician, or individuals that require other professional services such as medical prescriptions and sick notes. Our platform can be accessed via any IOS, Android phone, or smart device that has internet connectivity,” he added.
The team from TapGP believes that medical treatment and quality healthcare should not be expensive and should be available to anyone. That is why they provide patients with access to a consortium of doctors, pharmacists, paramedics, and nurses who came together to keep costs as low as possible, making healthcare accessible to all. A normal 10-minute online consultation with any of Tap GP's doctors or health practitioners will cost no more than £19.
tapGP is always available, whether you are at home or work, and if you get sick, one of their online doctors or medical staff members will be there to help you right away.
