Whether it is acne, eczema, rashes or dry skin most of us have dealt with some kind of skin issue at one point or another. It’s highly common and nothing to be embarrassed about. Lots of skin, hair and nail conditions will disappear over time, but others require treatment from a dermatologist, a doctor who specialises in skincare.
With this in mind, we are going to explore a few of the common signs you may need to pay a visit to a dermatologist. Read on to discover more.
Irritable and itchy eyes
Red and sore eyes can be an indicator of pink eye or possibly conjunctivitis. This is a skin condition that your dermatologist can potentially evaluate and treat. The recovery for both of these issues is often fairly quick thankfully, and people may not realize these things are a dermatological issue because they affect the skin around your eyes.
If you experience mouth ulcers or canker sores that come back fairly often then this could be a sign of specific digestive issues. Your dermatologist will be able to evaluate this and prescribe corticosteroids if they are required.
Very dry skin
Very dry skin can be an indication of the changing weather but there is also the risk that it could be more serious such as a skin condition like eczema or possibly psoriasis. Whatever the cause may be dry, itchy, red, irritable or scaly skin can be really sore and quite painful. Consulting a trained and qualified dermatologist will be able to help determine the appropriate steps for skin treatment.
Hair loss is something that many people experience for lots of reasons. Believe it or not people actually lose between 50 to 100 strands a day, and that’s very normal. In some cases, hair loss can be for specific reasons such as, post-pregnancy or even related to stress or hormone imbalances or changes in your body.
