Dry Itchy Skin – Further Information

Dry, itchy skin can add to the pressures of today’s hectic lifestyles.

The one thing that nobody needs is the inconvenience of dry, itchy skin. However, it is the sheer pace of life itself that can aggravate any underlying skin condition.

Where outside pressures on your life are often difficult to manage, a simple skin care routine is easily undertaken to better manage the health of your skin.  The results can definitely make the rest of life more bearable.

Dry, itchy skin has many and various causes and its treatment varies accordingly.

Usually, cases of dry, itchy skin are attributed to an outbreak of dermatitis or eczema. These terms are commonly interchanged, but there is a significant difference between the two.

Broadly speaking, dermatitis is triggered by external environmental factors that result in a skin reaction.

The word Eczema derives from the Greek term that translates as “to boil out".  Eczema is normally the body’s outer manifestation of an internal condition.

In addition, a constant feeling of itchiness on your skin is medically known as pruritus.  This itchiness is often localized to a small area of your body.  In these cases, regular scratching can not only lead to increased irritation, but it can result in damage to the epidermis.

Patches of dry, flaky skin accompany many skin complaints.

Beneath these seemingly straightforward veneers lies a multitude of medical afflictions that all present similarly.

Eczema and contact dermatitis are perhaps the most attributable causes of dry, itchy skin.

Contact dermatitis, as the description suggests, results from contact between your skin and allergens. With some incidences, once the allergen has been removed, the skin can quickly return to its normal healthy condition.  In other cases, even after the contact ceases and the source of the allergen removed, itchiness and skin damage can persist.

Neurodermatitis is a sub-category of dermatitis. It is more prevalent in middle age and is more common in women rather than in men. Emotional stress, anxiety and episodes of depression are suspected causes. Neurodermatitis is known in some medical circles as lichen simplex chronicus, this name is used because the condition is often characterised by lichenification of the skin.

Psoriasis is another complaint that displays symptoms of red, scaly patches of dry itchy skin. With Psoriasis, the immune system reacts incorrectly to a stimulus.  Accelerated growth of the skin cells follows.

Genetic inheritance is suspected as playing a role in Psoriasis susceptibility.  However, currently, its causes are not fully understood. Environmental factors may play a role in its extent and severity, if not the initial onset.

Regardless of its causes, the initial aim of any treatment of dry skin and itchiness, is to alleviate the symptoms. This is important as constant scratching of dry skin can lead to increased sensitivity.  This, in turn, can degenerate into the infamous itch-scratch-itch cycle of behaviour, resulting in a thickening and hardening of the epidermis. Inflammation, soreness and splitting, all of which can enhance the desire to scratch, usually follow to some degree.

Moisturising is a key component in any measure to relieve dry skin. Adequately hydrated skin is smooth and supple.  The irritation and soreness experienced by many sufferers naturally subsides as your skin returns to a healthy state.

Derma Shield contains high grade, laboratory tested, moisturisers and antipruritics that will help to stabilise your skins moisture levels and reduce the urge to scratch.  It is wash resistant and one application remains effective for up to 5 hours.

Having been applied, Derma Shield lays down a microscopic shield that helps protect your skin from contact with allergens.

Once regular moisturising is undertaken, the next requirement is to identify any allergens or lifestyle choices that may be responsible for the initial symptoms.

Most incidences of dry itchy skin will respond positively if you follow these simple guidelines. Even if the condition does not improve, you can be happy that you will have benefited in other ways

It is important to note that incidences of dry, itchy, flaky or scaly skin may be indicative of other medical conditions, some of which may be serious. You should visit your doctor if the onset of your symptoms are sudden or if your symptoms persist or are extensive.

Keep your skin soft, smooth and healthy.

"In 5 years of having Psoriasis your product was the only product I have come across that wasn't greasy and thus gave the skin a chance to dry up and reduce inflammation. Without your product I am certain that the Psoriasis on my arm wouldn't be as clear as it is now." K S (Pontypool)
