    (Rerun) Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Coping, Support, and Living Well with Kathryn Shusta, HS Advocate

    (Rerun) Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Coping, Support, and Living Well with Kathryn Shusta, HS Advocate

    Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes recurrent and painful nodules, boils, abscesses and lesions of the skin.
     
    Living with a chronic skin condition like HS is not just about managing physical symptoms and flare-ups. Living with a recurring, painful and sometimes visible condition can impact a person's emotions, social life and relationships. HS presents on the skin, but it can really take a toll on the whole body, emotionally and physically. There are a lot more nights in and a lot more ‘self-care.
     
    In this podcast episode, Marni spoke with Kathryn Shusta, creator of KS and HS. 
     
    Kathryn started her HS advocacy work in 2020 by creating KS and HS, an Instagram page that raises awareness of HS and what it is like to live with a chronic illness. She was not diagnosed with HS until she was 17 years old, 7 years after her first HS flare. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence for people with Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
    Kathryn began her Instagram as an outlet for her feelings about HS. Since then, she has found advocating and helping others to be rewarding and inspiring. She uses her background is in social work and public administration to inform her practice in advocacy. She promotes information based on research and evidence-based best practices through the lens of her own HS experiences. For fun, Kathryn likes to crochet while watching her favourite movies and go on adventures in her hometown.
    Join us in this incredible episode as Kathryn uncovers the biggest misconceptions and shares first-hand experience with Hidradenitis Suppurativa.

    28 years, 4 Children and Stage 3 Melanoma with Amanda Keck

    28 years, 4 Children and Stage 3 Melanoma with Amanda Keck

    Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer and grows very quickly if left untreated.
    In this podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with a Melanoma Survivor, Amanda Keck.
    Amanda began going through the hurdles and treatment of stage 3 melanoma, just one month after the arrival of her fourth son.
    She faced another hurdle just 6 months after her diagnosis with the medical team deciding to stop her treatment, as unfortunately, her body is not responding the way they would have liked. With a lively home of 4 boys ages 8, 5, 3 and 9 months, Amanda continuously showed her family and loved ones just how much she can face each day, with hospital visits, treatments, tests, the emotional turmoil of her diagnosis, and becoming ill from the treatment itself putting her in emergency multiple times. As a result, she’s sadly had to spend precious time away from her husband and growing boys.
    Time won't stand still for families affected by melanoma - Neither will we. Join us as we speak with Amanda about her Melanoma Story.
    You can learn more about Amanda here:
    Instagram: @amandajkeck

    Additional notes:
    Amanda will be joining team Dermhealth.co on Melanoma March 2020.

    Medical Dry Skin Conditions with Caylynn Jagga, Dermal Clinician at Skinfluence Clinic

    Medical Dry Skin Conditions with Caylynn Jagga, Dermal Clinician at Skinfluence Clinic

    Dry skin is a common health condition. It occurs when the skin lacks the oils and moisture it requires to stay healthy. Dry skin can be uncomfortable, itchy, red, and scaly. It can be a result of environmental variables such as chilly temperatures or dry air. It might also be brought on by medical diseases like diabetes, dehydration, and eczema.
    Although dry skin is usually temporary, there are types of dry skin that could last year-round.
    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will speak with Caylynn Jagga Dermal Clinician, at Skinfluence Clinic, about various medical dry skin conditions.
    Caylynn is a Dermal Clinician, with a degree in Bachelor in Dermal Science and post-graduate studies in Skin Cancer. For the past 3 years, she has been on the board of the ASDC (a peak body for Dermal Clinicians and industry alike).   She is passionate about the skin and its complexities and educates the patients she sees every day on their presenting skin concerns. Caylynn aims for her patients to feel knowledgeable and informed as there is so much information and misinformation out there.
    Listen to this episode as Marni and Caylynn talk about medical dry skin conditions and more!

    Chapped Lips 101 with Dr Julia Rhodes

    Chapped Lips 101 with Dr Julia Rhodes

    Because lips don't have any oil glands, their skin is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of the body. They run the danger of getting dry and chapped as a result. Lips are more exposed to the elements than the rest of the body and can develop chapped skin through exposure to the sun, dry air, or extreme cold.
    Many of us encounter chapped lips in the winter, which are inflamed, dry, and peeling lips brought on by disruption of the outer skin layer.
    Cheilitis, the medical term for chapped lips, can result from exposure to an allergen or a medical condition.
    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Dr Julia Rhodes,  award-winning Melbourne-based dermatologist and the founder of Spotlight on Skin.
    She is passionate about demystifying the confusing world of skincare by providing evidence-based, unbiased information so that you can make informed decisions when it comes to your skin.
    Tune in to this episode as Dr Julia talks about chapped lips and more!

    Faces of Dry Skin Conditions: Real Life Stories from Stephanie, Farah, Carly and Georgia

    Faces of Dry Skin Conditions: Real Life Stories from Stephanie, Farah, Carly and Georgia

    There has been a stigma attached to skin conditions for centuries.
    Those who have skin conditions have not only to cope with the effects of their diagnosis but also the reaction of others to their condition.
    In this week's podcast episode, we will be talking about not just one, but three different dry skin conditions that affect millions of people's lives.
    Stephanie Shepherd of Cyapsoriasis: Stephanie is living with psoriasis for 14 years now. She runs an Instagram and a YouTube channel which both raise psoriasis awareness, through sharing her story and other people's too. She strongly believes in natural healing, through diet and lifestyle changes, because that’s when she had seen the best results for her skin.
    Farah Khaleck is a motivational speaker and scleroderma ambassador. Farah was just 17 years old when she began experiencing symptoms and early signs of scleroderma. Since then, she has braved her situation to advocate and voice herself as a strong and empowered woman. Farah sees scleroderma as another challenge and has managed to live with it to her advantage.
    Carly Findlay OAM is an award-winning writer, speaker and appearance activist living with Ichthyosis.  She works part-time at Melbourne Fringe as their Access and Inclusion Coordinator. She writes on disability issues for publications including ABC, Daily Life and SBS . Carly has written her first book – a memoir called Say Hello, and is editing Growing Up Disabled in Australia.
    Georgia Harris of Meadows on my Skin is a 25-year-old aspiring actor from Yorkshire. She frequently posts raw, intimate and vulnerable posts about life with Psoriasis and how to handle the mental health struggles that may come alongside it.
