Dr. Downs provides online tutorials for local GPs on hair loss.

On Thursday 4th March Dr. Anthony Downs, Consultant Dermatologist, provided a series of on-line medical educational interactive lectures via Zoom looking at how to diagnose and treat hair conditions for local GPs in Devon & Cornwall.

There are a number of important infections and inflammatory hair conditions that GPs need to be able to identify, either to treat or refer to a Dermatology specialist.

GPs may be the first point of call for their patients concerned about excess hair or hair loss. It is important to investigate those that may be caused by an underlying medical condition and to also refer those that are cosmetic to a Dermatology specialist where the patient wants advice and guidance about potential treatment options.

Dr. Downs is continues to look forward to passing on his knowledge and offering further useful advice and guidance for doctors at the next event.
