Guest: Arup Indra, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Pharmaceutial Sciences at Oregon State University The onset of cooler temperatures also means the onset of irritated skin for many people – dry, cracked hands or heels. Eczema can be brought on by seasonal changes or exposure to irritating chemicals. Dr. Arup Indra has been a pioneer in getting to the bottom of skin conditions like eczema.
