Connections: Second Opinion LIVE! What We Put On Our Skin

This episode of Second Opinion LIVE is all about what we put on our skin: chemicals of various kinds - makeup, cosmetics, sunscreen.

Can these products cause trouble for our skin? And what happens when we wash them down the drain? Our guests:

  • Lindsey Dolohanty, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Tim Wiegand, M.D., associate clinical professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at URMC and a volunteer faculty member of the SUNY Upstate Medical Toxicology Fellowship program
