Living with a skin condition can impact every part of your life, from your sleep schedule to your social life and beyond.
Four people with dermatological conditions shared candid conversations during MyHealthTeam’s live Q&A event on July 27, 2021, when members of the psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) communities had a chance to hear about the experiences of other people who have those conditions.
Nitika Chopra (who has psoriasis), Alexis Smith (who lives with eczema), Danielle Wheeler (who has vitiligo), and Jasmine Ivanna Espy (who lives with HS) joined MyHealthTeam’s Director of Community Partnerships, Casey Cronin, to answer members’ questions about living with skin conditions.
Here are some of the questions the guests answered during the live Q&A:
