Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my nummular dermatitis?
Yes. In most cases, a doctor on Maple can treat nummular 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 nummular dermatitis. To learn more about how our online dermatology assessments work, please click here.

What is nummular 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.
Nummular dermatitis is a chronic condition which causes the development of coin-shaped spots on the skin. These spots cause irritation as they are often itchy and may be filled with fluid. These spots can last anywhere from weeks to months, and are more common with women.

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.
