Learned SO much!
Really enjoyed learning SO MUCH about dermatology and skin conditions. Since I suffer from eczema, KP and acne, it’s amazing to get a chance to learn about these conditions from derms. Amy is incredibly knowledgeable on many of the topics and sets up the interview and conversation in a way that makes it easy to understand a lot of the medical information.
Thank you Amy!
This podcast is fantastic! I have had horrible skin rashes for the last 15 years that occur whenever I put on a bathing suit and go in the pool! Have been to countless specialists. We call this my vacation rash but it’s not really a joke. It is itchy and burning to the point of bleeding and pain. Finally figured out that I have a severe case of excema because of a very problematic non existent skin barrier. Moisturizer is the key not steroids which was a last ditch effort. Please keep up this wonderful series! You are truly helping people!
