Concerning lesion: One possibility could be high resolution virtual medicine consultation with a dermatologist. That is something that has been done for many years with success. However, if a biopsy was needed, you would still need to eventually be seen in person.

Please consult with a Dermatologist Doctor who can give you a through examination and the correct recommendations and treatment. If you are not confident in your Doctor see another for a second opinion.
