Bacterial infections commonly treated online
Our online doctors treat a wide range of bacterial infections every day: UTIs, ear infections, cellulitis (skin infections), staph infections, sinusitis, dental infections, certain sexually transmitted infections (STI), and more. HealthTap doctors are available 24/7 to evaluate your symptoms and prescribe antibiotics by video appointment.
Antibiotics do not work on viral infections. During online doctor visits for infections, doctors will review symptoms, history of exposure, risk factors and allergies to determine the cause of the infection. When the diagnosis is a bacterial infection, the HealthTap doctor may immediately prescribe an antibiotic, or may order a laboratory test on urine or blood to confirm the diagnosis. When your test results are complete, you may review your results online, and if needed, receive additional prescriptions from the online doctor.
