Would a pharmacist look at a skin lesion?

My local GP surgery is open but only doing virtual consultations and my mobile won't download the app they use so it's telephone only. My 11yo daughter has no COVID symptoms but does have an odd skin lesion that I want to get checked as I don't know what it is. In non-Covid days I would ask a pharmacist, are they still offering that kind of service?

Why not give them a call first so that you don't waste a trip?

It seems incredible that you couldn't send a picture of it to your GP surgery? Sending pictures is really helpful in dermatology. You could put a ruler next to the lesion also, so they can accurately see the size. I would get a virtual consultation and arrange to send a pic (maybe via a laptop if I couldn't on my phone?) to the GP

yes, pharmacies should still be doing this.
