On 16 September 2015, talkhealth and Mölnlycke Health Care collaborated to run a Twitter Chat. Using talkhealth’s hashtag #talkskin, talkhealth, a number of specially-selected skin care experts, and members of the talkhealth community all took part in a lively discussion of all things emollient-related.
Emollients are moisturising treatments often used by individuals suffering from eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions. So talkhealth members from the talkeczema and talkpsoriasis hubs were keen to discuss issues around how to choose an emollient, how to apply emollients, when best to apply them, the effect of the coming winter weather on their effectiveness, and much more besides.
The Chat was fun for us at talkhealth as well as (we’re told) our members, 10 of whom were also lucky enough to win a free tub of Epaderm emollient. We’re delighted that we reached over 20,000 people with our tweets during the Chat and the build up to it, and really keen to reach even more with our future Twitter Chats.
If you missed the #talkskin Twitter Chat, don’t worry! You can look at a Storify of the chat – which contains some highlights from the day including quite a few pearls of wisdom from those who participated and our special skin condition ambassadors – here. And check here to see about other Twitter Chats we’ve got coming up, including another chance to #talkskin on 11 November 2015!
