Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my atopic dermatitis?
Yes. In most cases, a doctor on Maple can treat atopic dermatitis online by asking about your symptoms and by taking a look at your skin through a photo or by video. Once you describe your symptoms to the doctor, they’ll be able to provide a diagnosis, write necessary prescriptions, and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. If the doctor suspects you have a more serious problem, they may suggest for you to go to a clinic for a thorough physical examination.
In select provinces, you can also request to see a dermatologist right on Maple about your atopic dermatitis. To learn more about how our online dermatology assessments work, please click here.

What is atopic dermatitis?
Dermatitis is a group of diseases resulting in the inflammation of the skin. It can cause the skin to darken, develop rough or scaly patches, swell, crust, and ooze.
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic form of dermatitis which causes the skin to become red and itchy. It usually begins in childhood and can improve or worsen over time.
What are the symptoms of atopic dermatitis?
Symptoms of atopic dermatitis include:
- Itchy skin
- Dry or cracked skin
- Red patches
- Swollen skin
How can I treat atopic dermatitis?
In some cases, atopic dermatitis can go away on its own, especially when contracted at a young age. Otherwise, medications like steroid creams, oral immune therapies or targeted biological therapies can help control inflation, cracking, and itching of the skin.

Saves a lot of time compared to sitting in a doctor's office!
Legitimate and just as described, with fabulous doctors. Totally fills the late-night worry gap!
Not having to endure a long wait at a walk in clinic is fabulous. Especially since I have twin pre-schoolers to contend with.
The service is so quick and professional and saves hours spent in a walk-in-clinic. This is a game changer for busy moms and I recommend it to everyone!
Instead of my husband having to drag both kids to the hospital or walk in alone he was able to see a doctor right away and get a prescription faxed to our local pharmacy.
Our family has used this service twice so far and it has been amazing. Both doctors were friendly, compassionate and you never feel rushed.
Was concerned I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor without an appointment. I installed the Maple app, spoke to a doctor and had my prescription in under 30 min.
I used Maple for the first time today. It was quick and easy, took less than ten minutes including connecting time and the doctor was professional and friendly.
LOVE This service. Not only do you have a doctor within seconds but they are professional and knowledgable.
Absolutely blown away. It was SO easy to use. No wait time getting connected with a doctor. Getting the prescription faxed to the pharmacy made it a seamless process.
