Inflammatory skin conditions are far and away the most common issues dermatologists see when their patients visit. In fact, some say they see these types of afflictions on a daily basis. What is inflammation and is it serious? The answer to this question is yes and no.
Inflammation causes an itchy rash that can often be treated and dealt with easily. Other times, inflammation leads to chronic conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and seborrheic dermatitis that require ongoing treatment to keep under control.
What Causes Skin Inflammation?
The exact process of skin inflammation isn’t completely understood. Generally, dermatologists believe that when the skin comes into contact with a certain irritant (which can be different for everyone) such as sunlight, dyes and fragrances, soaps, or allergens, inflammatory messenger hormones are produced in the skin. These hormones spread to other cells and trigger the production and release of additional hormones.
This second batch of hormones the skin produces can trigger responses like vasodilation (redness) and nerve activation (itchiness). In cases of severe inflammation, even more hormones are produced. This can signal cells to produce free radicals, enzymes, and chemicals that damage the skin.
How Can You Fight Inflammation?
When skin inflammation is severe, medical interventions are often sought to fight it. However, in many cases, mild to severe inflammation can be kept in check by using the proper skincare products on a daily basis. This would include those offered by Cannatera.
