Ivan is one of the leading Podiatric Dermatologists and we were delighted to talk to him about Dermatoscopes, Woods lights, the 5-minute fungus test, the best emollients and anti-fungals for the feet and of course take little trips down memory lane to when Ivan taught Ian at University around 18 years ago.
