Some skin conditions can have detrimental effects on our general health and wellbeing.

Actinic (or solar) keratosis can result in tough, scaly patches, and is caused by prolonged exposure to the sun.

Other skin conditions such as acne or rosacea can vary in severity, and in more serious cases have a harmful effect on self-esteem, causing feelings of anxiety or stress.

Chronic skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema will tend to go through periods of flare and remission. When symptoms occur, such as irritation or itchy skin, treatment can help to provide relief. Contact dermatitis can also sometimes cause itchy skin.

A bacterial infection can sometimes be responsible for skin conditions, such as in the case of cellulitis. This is characterised by red, swollen areas of skin, which may feel quite hot to the touch and sometimes blister.

If you think you may be displaying symptoms of any of the above, we recommend you see your GP.
