Acne treatment service

Acne is a skin condition that develops as a result of hormonal changes in adolescence resulting in blotches, greasy skin, and scars. The condition of your skin will normally improve over time. It may persist and become a concern for some people in their late twenties, thirties, and forties causing a lot of stress.

Acne may clear up with the appropriate treatment. There are several acne remedies available over-the-counter at your local drugstore. Before you take any prescription medicines, we advise you to try these. If they don't work, you may need a prescription for creams/gels alone or with oral antibiotics.

Acne can appear in a variety of ways:

  • Pustules (bumps with a white or yellow head)
  • Nodules (bigger and sore red bumps)
  • Comedones (whiteheads and blackheads)
  • Papules (red lumps)
  • Pseudocysts (bumps with a small amount of fluid in them, like a cyst).

Based on the kind, location, and number of spots, acne is classed as mild, moderate, or severe.

In order to examine your acne, we'll need two clear pictures. You can use the camera on your phone. You can upload these pictures when you are filling out the questionnaire.

Request Treatment

This service allows you to request a treatment from our doctors. You will be asked a series of questions related to the treatment, after which you will be asked to pay a fee of €20. To proceed, select the required dosage and click on "Start Consultation".

Welcome to Eirdoc’s online consultation!

Let’s get started!

Before we prescribe you the required medication, we would like to check if this product is suitable for you. Once you fill in the questionnaire, one of our doctors will assess the answers. It will only take you up to 5 minutes to fill in the questionnaire. Once completed our doctors will assess the request and send the prescription directly to the pharmacy of your choice. Our prescriptions can be used in any Irish pharmacy. We offer a 100% refund if our doctors do not deem you suitable for this service.

We kindly ask you to be honest when you provide your answers. Contact your GP if you are unsure or need to verify any information.

If our doctors deem that we cannot prescribe the medication safely via online consultation, than you will receive a full refund and the assessing doctor will give your further advise.

Please confirm that you are 18 years or above and the prescription request is for yourself only.
