Episode 7: Belinda Longhurst [Podiatric Dermatology]

A very popular episode where we covered the latest for treating onychomycosis and plantar warts, and talked about pseudoscience within Dermatology and how and why aqueous cream and tea tree oil really have no place whatsoever in modern day evidence informed practice.

We also covered some clinical gems such as a checklist for spotting malignant lesions, how the lions share of what appears to be anhidrosis may well be fungal and much more!
