Skin Care in the Age of Coronavirus
The Mayo Clinic Radio program shares the latest information on the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Your best defense against the spread of coronavirus is hand-washing, but frequent hand-washing can deplete the skin of its natural moisture and oils, causing dry and cracked skin. Recommendations to wear face masks also are taking a toll on the skin. Face masks may rub across the nose and behind the ears, which can irritate the skin. What should you do if your skin is becoming dry or sensitive? On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Dawn Davis, a Mayo Clinic dermatologist, shares tips to care for your skin affected by frequent hand-washing or face masks.

Then, Dr. Amanika Kumar, a Mayo Clinic gynecologic surgeon, explains how thorough assessment of a patient can help direct the treatment for ovarian cancer. And Dr. James Li, a Mayo Clinic allergist and immunologist, discusses adult asthma.
