An introduction to Rash Talk.® Meet the Founder

Do you remember Rash Talk®? First launched in 1987, and running until the late ‘00s, Rash Talk® was the light-hearted dermatology journal with a humorous twist. 

Relaunched at the BDNG Harrogate Annual Conference 2023, Rash Talk® is now proudly owned by Derma UK as a dermatology discussion programme which sees medical experts ‘talk rash’ about everything skin from the clinic and beyond!

In light of its revival, Rob chats to Rupert to discover the history of Rash Talk®. Hear all about its 25-year legacy, how both writing and the practice of medicine has changed over time, and the importance of reflecting broader well-being, lifestyle and technological impacts beyond core dermatology, as the new Rash Talk® returns for 2023 and beyond.

Derma UK is committed to supporting the practice and development of dermatology and is proud to lead the Rash Talk® discussion. At the heart of it all are the topics that you‘d most like to hear about, so do let us know if there’s something you’d like us to cover by emailing us at
