Skin monitoring and  image sharing application

MySkinSelfie Shut down

The MySkinSelfie project has helped thousands of patients to self monitor their skin and also to share images with clinics to allow remote diagnosis. The project is now closing as the sponsoring organisation has chosen a different platform for tele-dermatology.

The app will be removed from the app-stores at the end of July 2022. We hope that all of the MySkinSelfie users have found it helpful. The team have leaned a lot from the project which has made a good contribution to the advancement and acceptability of tele-dermatology.

For further information on the shutdown please see the background page
