Your skin is one of the most important organs in the body. It holds everything together, and protects your sensitive parts from the dangers of the environment, including harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. And because your skin is by far the most visible part of your body, it’s often used as an indicator of deeper issues going on within your body. And when your body isn’t able to resolve these issues, they can show up on your skin.
When your internal environment isn’t properly supporting your skin, it can manifest in skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. At Nardini Naturopathic, we have various skin conditions treatments to help you overcome any disorders which are affecting you.
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a common skin condition which usually affects children, but adults can experience it as well. When you experience eczema, your skin becomes dry and itchy, and cracks easily. Eczema is a chronic disease, which is to say that symptoms are long-lasting.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from eczema:
- Dry, cracked skin
- Itchy skin, often raw
- Red, inflamed patches
- Raised bumps on the skin
- Blisters on the skin which may ooze fluid
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a skin condition where your skin cells replace themselves at a much faster rate than normal. This can cause red, scaly patches which often flake off easily and are incredibly itchy. It most commonly affects people on elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition which most of us are painfully familiar with. When you suffer from acne, skin cells, oil, and hair will gather in your pores, clogging them. Once clogged, they end up gathering bacteria, which causes them to swell. And once the stuff clogging your pore breaks down, it will form a pimple.
Acne commonly affects teenagers, but adults will often suffer from it as well.
