Prepping your skin to face fall season
As fall settles in and the weather starts to dry with decreasing humidity, a lot of skin problems start cropping up. As we head towards winter, our skin starts resembling parchment paper with even the slightest scratch or bruise showing up clearly.

These signs may start appearing on our skin towards October and get worse towards December and January. The skin may feel itchy and parched, and in worst case scenarios, it may even scratch and bleed.

On top of the list of questions that you may want to ask your dermatologist this time of the year may be ‘how to keep the skin hydrated, moist, and supple’.

The first and most important piece of advice we can give you is to drink plenty of water to keep your system hydrated and to use a good moisturizer to prevent your skin from drying out. Keeping your skin safe from allergies is also very important as an allergy may make the skin more prone to itching, and scratching could cause bleeding and injuries, resulting in scars and marks. Regular cleansing with a mild and soothing cleanser is extremely important to keep the skin clean, clear, and refreshed. Always keep your moisturizer handy to be used as and when needed.

Get enough sleep and rest for your skin, as tired skin looks exactly that – ‘tired’. Just as our skin needs food and water, it needs rest too. Heed our advice and your skin will thank you for it!
Eczema is quite manageable
Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become red, inflamed, and itchy. There are several types of the skin condition such as contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, nummular eczema, stasis dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and dyshidrotic eczema.

Despite eczema being a very common condition (over 30 million Americans suffer from a form of the disease), most people don’t like to talk about it. However, this is the time to talk about it, with October being Eczema Awareness Month.

Eczema has mild, moderate, and severe forms. It can appear anywhere on the body, but in children it’s more visible on the chin and cheeks. The symptoms may appear different from person to person, but the more common symptoms are:
  • Red, inflamed skin
  • Dry, sensitive skin
  • Severe itching
  • Rough, leathery and scaly patches on the skin
  • Dark patches of skin
  • Areas of swelling
  • Oozing or crusting
Although there is no cure for eczema, there are effective treatments. They largely depend on the age of the patient and severity of the disease, and include prescription topical medications, over-the-counter medications, immunosuppressants, phototherapy, biologic drugs, and natural treatments. It’s manageable in most cases. What you need to do is to:
  • Keep your skin clean by daily bathing and moisturizing
  • Avoid exposure to triggers
  • Use treatments regularly as prescribed.
Talk to your dermatologist today if you or a loved one is suffering from this skin condition.
