Skin Issues Need Immediate Attention

Skin conditions can be particularly annoying and irritating. The main reason why any skin disease or skin issue is extremely difficult to deal with is that it not only brings a lot of pain, it also causes a shudder whenever one sees the affected region of the skin. This is why it remains important that as soon as you see any issues with your skin that you consult a dermatologist. 

The only problem with getting in touch with a dermatologist quickly is that there are not many dermatologists in hospitals and as a result, it takes a lot of time to get an appointment with a well-known dermatologist. This proves to be a big problem as skin conditions can grow rapidly and deteriorate the affected region of the skin very quickly. The wait can prove disastrous as a result.  Read More...

Skin conditions in children

Keeping an eye on your child's skin

Children do tend to get more accute infections and conditions than adults because their immune system is still developing. Grown-ups often enjoy a better health, and their health problems are mostly derived from lifestyle choices and/or chronic conditions, and even the effects of ageing. In the case of the little ones, they are often more vulnerable to infections and germs such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, which are present in the environment but more rarely affect older people with a longer history of exposure. 

Skin conditions in children might cause a series of symptoms that need diagnosis and treatment, not only in order to get rid of the condition in the first place, but also because kids might hurt themselves or make themselves worse because of the way they react to those symptoms. Perhaps the most common case is itching: rashes or other skin features that itch may lead to excessive scratching, causing more inflammation, lesions on the skin, and even the spreading of the infection along the tissue. Scratching infected skin can increase the likelihood of contagion, because the infectious agent is now on your child's fingers. Also, the abrasion produced by scratching may open up a way for the germs to get inside your child's bloodstream, potentially making the condition worse.

Most skin problems in children are not dangerous and tend to heal by themselves or with little medication, but without the proper care they might have complications such as the ones described above. In the very rare case that the symptoms are a sign of something serious going on, early diagnosis often makes the chances of recovery go much higher. In brief, keeping an eye on your child's skin and calling a dermatologist any time you detect something strange or your child complains about itching or discomfort about their skin, is the best thing you can do to protect their health and wellbeing.

Eczema: The Chronic Rash

Eczema is one of the most common skin conditions today. It is common in babies and adults alike, and can be quite frustrating. The condition starts with a red, irritable, itchy patch on the skin. For babies, the patches can appear on the chin, cheeks, chest or any other part of the body. Since it is itchy, continued scratching further irritates the skin causing inflammation. It is advisable to consult a dermatologist immediately you notice these patches on your baby or yourself. 

Facts about Eczema

One of the most important facts to know about eczema is that it is not contagious. While the cause of the condition is unknown, one cannot catch it from associating or touching anyone who has it.  Read More...

Common Intimate Skin Conditions You Need To Know About

Skin problems are common regardless of age and gender. They are, however, prevalent in specific stages due to hormonal imbalance, poor diet, wanting hygiene practices and bad habits. One such bad habit is not taking the necessary precautions when being intimate. Admittedly, sex is a lot of fun. But are you aware of all the unwanted effects that come with this pleasure?

Intimacy involves skin to skin contact, which can cause a reaction on either or both parties. While some of these reactions can be as a result of STIs, others are temporary and harmless. However, the rate at which these skin conditions are rising is alarming. This should prepare you to be cautious before and after you hit the sheets. Here are some of the most common intimate skin conditions today. Read More...
