    Phototherapy and PDT...made as easy as 1-2-3

    Welcome to Season 2 of Dermalogues! We're happy to be back and looking forward to bringing you, the Dermatology Residents, answers to some of your burning Derm questions with the help of Canada's leading dermatologists.
    On our first episode back, Dr Kerri Purdy dives into two related topics, Phototherapy and PDT (photodynamic therapy) with Dr Vincent Richer of the University of British Columbia medical school and Pacific Derm in Vancouver.
    They discuss when to prescribe PDT or Phototherapy, the importance of prepping the patient for what they are getting into, why tanning beds and home sunlamps are not a good alternative to in clinic treatment and why PDT remains an important tool in the dermatologists tool box even with new and effective drug options.
    On this episode we take two dermatology resident questions, from Mimi Tran of the University of British Columbia and Annie Liu of the University of Toronto.
    We hope you enjoy this first episode of our second season of Dermalogues. New Episodes will be coming your way every two weeks. Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss any!

    Contact Dermatitis: not so

    Contact Dermatitis: not so

    Dr Kerri Purdy speaks with Dr Melanie Pratt, a world-renowned expert on contact dermatitis.  This is part two of our look at the Sherlock Holmes world of contact dermatitis. Treating this mysterious condition requires clinicians to trade their lab coats for detective caps as they hunt around for clues and search for allergens and irritants in fragrances, products and even furniture.
    As you will hear, the process of discovering the culprit behind contact dermatitis is often far from elementary. In this episode, Drs Purdy and Pratt explore some of the most common irritants and allergens found in products.They take a close look at specific problem areas, like eyelids, lips, scalp and hands.


    And they review why patch tests are a critical tool for all dermatologists.
    This is our last episode in our first season of Dermalogues but not to worry, we'll back with a season 2. If there's anything you'd like us to cover on the next season of Dermalogues, please send us an email podcasts@dermatology.ca  Or you can call our toll free number 1-877 Derm-log that’s 1-877-337-6564.
