What causes dry skin?
There are a variety of factors that can cause dry, sensitive and irritated skin. Environmental factors including dry air, temperatures that are too hot or cold and exposing the skin to heat for extended periods of time can cause the skin to dry out and become sensitive. Using harsh fragrances and soaps on the skin can also cause it to become dry and irritated. Dry skin can also be caused by a variety of skin conditions, which may need to be managed long-term in order to keep the skin hydrated and comfortable.
Atopic eczema can cause the skin to become dry, red and itchy which can cause discomfort. It’s a long-term skin condition for most people, although children can grow out of it and adult cases of eczema can be improved with careful management of the skin’s condition. Eczema can affect any part of the body, but it commonly affects around the knees, the elbows and around the neck, hands, cheeks and scalp. The severity of the condition can vary from person to person, but if it isn’t treated and managed it can be uncomfortable and cause disruption in day to day life.
Psoriasis causes patches of skin on the elbows, knees and lower back to become red and scaly. The patches can be sore and itchy, similar to eczema and can vary in severity. Some people can suffer just minor irritation and others may experience severe discomfort that can have an impact on their quality of life. People how have psoriasis may experience periods with either mild or no symptoms followed by periods where symptoms are severe.
