So a couple of months ago Tristan got a bite on his arm. At first I thought it was just a mosquito bite, in fact, he had JUST gotten it right before his 7 year well check. When the Dr was doing his well check he looked at it and noticed it was quite swollen already, but we figured it would go down quickly.
A few days later, a red ring appeared around the bite. YUCK. As a mom of three, including one that requires a LOT of Dr/therapy appointments, making an unexpected trip to the Dr can be quite the feat. Well now there is a way to do it all from home!!
Amwell is an online doctor service that you can easily face time with and it is only $49 per visit! Plus, they actually accept many insurances too.
We downloaded the chat service on my computer and within minutes we were seen by the doctor. There were no waiting rooms, no exposing Oliver to other sick kids, it was EASY and quick.
The Doctor was able to look at the bite and could see that Tristan had a bit of Cellulitis from the bite. He gave us a prescription, called it in to the pharmacy down the street and voila! we were set. Within a couple of hours we had the prescription and Tristan was started on it. It was gone within 2 days. To say I was impressed was an understatement. It was SO EASY.
Not only that, but especially with RSV season starting up, I want to avoid the Dr office as much as possible as I don’t need to be exposing Oliver to any of that. He was born three month early and just turned a year this month. The LAST thing I need is him to end up back in the hospital with RSV.
