Episode SPECIAL: Getting the skinny on a number of skin disorders

In this very special no-Mike episode, James gets together with our good friend and colleague Bruce Arroll from New Zealand who capably sits in to fill Mike’s shoes which Mike actually left in New Zealand last year. We discuss impetigo, otitis externa, chronic supporative otitis media and eczema and decide that the old drugs are still very useful.
