An early show on dermatology featured the podiatrist Belinda Longhurst. That stream of PodChatLive surprised the hosts as they weren't that particularly enthusiastic about the subject, even so it generated so much awareness it is more or less probably the most looked at and most listened to livestream they have done. It exposed the hosts eyes on the way to undertaking more episodes on subjects that may not actually be of most interest for them, but do attract a broad audience. In this episode on dermatology a lot of subjects were talked about such as the latest for treating the really frequent problems observed in podiatry practice such as onychomycosis and plantar warts were reviewed. Additionally, they brought up the amount of pseudoscience within dermatology in podiatry there seemed to be and how widely used treatment options such as aqueous ointment and also tea tree oil genuinely have no place in any way in current day evidence based practice.
