Skin Conditions

Are you suffering from rosacea, eczema, or very dry skin? Frustrated with a chemo rash or allergic reaction? Read on to find more information on a number of difficult skin conditions, with tips to help you cope.

 

CV_Skin17-210x210Rashes
“Rash” is a word that describes most any condition that creates a change in the skin characterized by redness, raised bumps or hives, inflammation, itching, and dryness, as well as pain, weeping, blisters, and scaling in some instances. Rashes most often appear in one area, like the cheek, elbow, or neck, but can also cover large areas of the body like the back or legs.

CV_Skin16-210x210Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that causes red, dry patches of thickened skin on areas like the elbows, knees, and scalp, though it can affect any part of the body. These patches are the result of new skin cells being produced too quickly. Since they out-pace the body’s ability to slough them off, they pile up on the surface of skin, creating lesions. Doctors aren’t sure what causes the condition, but believe it has something to do with a malfunctioning immune system.

CV_Skin15-210x210Medications and Skin Reactions
Advertisements for medications always come with a long list of possible side effects that may include stomach upset, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and more. You may be surprised to learn, however, that many medications—even those that we consider common over-the-counter solutions—can cause side effects particularly on the skin. These may include dryness, itchiness, irritation, redness, acne, and even rashes, eczema, photosensitivity, and other more serious skin conditions.

CV_Skin14-210x210Eczema

The word “eczema” describes a group of skin conditions that share similar symptoms, including swelling, irritation, and itchiness, and sometimes redness, burning, blisters, dryness, scaling, and oozing lesions. All these conditions have one thing in common—inflammation of the skin.

Eczema can affect almost anyone, though young children are especially susceptible, with most cases appearing before the age of five. Many resolve themselves as children grow up, but some can continue to recur throughout adulthood. Eczema can also appear for the first time at puberty, however, or later.

CV_Skin13-210x210Dry, Flaky Skin

Dry, flaky skin is such a common affliction that many of us take it for granted. Winter weather, illnesses, medical treatments, medications, harsh soaps and detergents, chemicals, dermatitis and other skin conditions, and a myriad of other factors can all cause dry skin.

When skin is dry, it has a compromised protective layer, which means it will allow more toxins and bacteria to enter into the body than it normally would. As it worsens, it can cause itching, cracking, redness, and inflammation, and even deteriorate into sores that may bleed. Attending to dry, flaky skin not only benefits its appearance, texture, and comfort, but improves the health of the entire body.

CV_Skin11-210x210Allergic Skin

Allergic skin reactions account for a lot of difficult skin conditions, including eczema, rosacea, rashes, hives, and allergic contact dermatitis. Skin can react this way when you touch something you’re allergic to, eat or inhale an allergen, or take a medication that triggers an allergic response in your body.

Since many skin conditions are difficult to diagnose, it’s important to remember that your body may be reacting to an allergen. If you suspect allergies may be involved, be sure to make an appointment with your allergist/immunologist, as he/she can help you discover your “triggers,” or those things that you may be allergic to.

CV_Skin12-210x210Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin disease affecting about 13 million Americans—one out of every 20 individuals. Redness, swelling, bumps, pimples, and even skin thickening are all symptoms of the condition, which most often occurs on the face, but can also affect the scalp, neck, ears, chest, back, and even the eyes, where it can cause grittiness, tearing, and burning. Rosacea usually strikes adults between the ages of 30 and 60, with women more often affected than men. The condition is typically more severe in men, however.

  • Calming Moisture for Face, Neck & Scalp: instantly soothes and hydrates flushed skin, with oat extract to reduce redness and itch. BUY NOW!

CV_Skin18-210x210Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation

Chemotherapy and radiation can create difficult side effects. They may be severe or very mild, depending on the type and duration of treatment, as well as on individual body chemistry. According to the American Cancer Society, “Every person doesn’t get every side effect, and some people get few, if any.”

Once you know what to expect, you can begin conscientious self-care by stocking up on safe, non-toxic personal care products, adjusting your habits to accommodate the changes your body will experience, and above all, taking the time to truly nurture and express compassion for yourself.
