Is it safe to diagnose from a photo?

Last week it was reported that a mum saved her daughter's leg from being amputated after sending a picture of it to an expert, according to the article, doctors in Singapore mistook the baby's badly swollen foot for a severe bone disease and wanted to cut it off.

The baby's mum was doubtful and sent a photo of it to a skin expert in the UK who spotted that it was a treatable skin disease.

Is asking for a diagnosis digitally a safe thing to do? Today on This Morning we will see whether it's possible to get advice from a doctor from only a photograph.
