Skin care for your hands, face during COVID-19

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 Q&A podcast, Dr. Dawn Davis, a Mayo Clinic dermatologist, shares tips to care for your skin affected by frequent hand-washing or face masks.

To practice safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, this interview was conducted using video conferencing. The sound and video quality are representative of the technology used.

Can someone from Mayo explain why it was ok for VP Pence to enter the hospital without a mask?

COMMENT

No one demanded that he wear one. He just refused and no one dared to force him.

Hi,
I saw his response on CNN and he said he is tested frequently and was tested before he entered the facility and before he gets on Air Force One when traveling.
Still not good PR .
