Many people look for diagnosis to their disease conditions online. They also use this diagnosis to treat the disease. This can lead to various problems. This article talks of the reasons for people looking at self treatment as an option and why it is not good.

The internet is used for searching the meaning of medical conditions. They do so because they feel that they can learn more about a disease that has affected them or their relatives. Some people take this to the next level and have even started treating themselves and others using the plethora of information available online about various diseases and conditions. This has led to many fatalities due to the increase in the severity of disease in some people.

The information present in the various websites of the internet regarding diseases have been put there for different reasons. Some people have put the information for the public to be aware of the various diseases and to know the methods of taking precautions. Others have put the information online for other health workers to understand or learn about the various treatment options available.

Some people, without knowing if this information is true or false, have been using the information available to treat themselves and others. The reasons for the people using online diagnosis for diseases are:

1. Waiting time:
Some people do not like to wait for the doctor to see them. They think that they do not have time to wait and waste in a doctor's consultation. This makes them believe all the information that they get at the click of a mouse and then they treat themselves with this information. The problem is that the information they got from the internet is usually inadequate and it can lead to many problematic health complications.

2. Cost of consultation: Some people try to save some money by treating their own disease. They feel that visiting the consultation is costly and to save the money spent on consultation, these people search various databases on the internet for relevant information of their disease and use the information to self diagnose and treat their disease.

3. Embarrassment: Some people are embarrassed by the disease. The embarrassment may be because they think that the people around them might feel they are weaklings. Another reason may be the embarrassment of undressing in front of the physician for an examination. These thoughts make the individual to avoid seeing the doctor and instead, the individuals look at the internet for quick solutions.

4. Easy: Visiting a physician is time taking and getting an appointment may be difficult. This makes the individuals to take the easy way out and this is the searching for information on the internet and using the information to diagnose and treat their disease. Easy methods of treating a disease can be found in many websites, but the authenticity of these sites are questionable. It can lead to various health problems that can increase the complications.

These are the various common reasons for the individual to avoid meeting the doctor. Almost all of these self treatments do not work. In fact the condition of the person may become worse after these self treatments. It should be avoided at all costs. Internet can be used to learn more about a certain condition, but never for self treatment.
