Take Me To Post Comment Form

Have irritation and redness recently crept up on your skin? Are you using an endless amount of skin care products to no avail? Maybe it’s time to come up with a new approach.

Perhaps it’s your regimen, the ingredients in your favorite body wash is causing your skin to itch. Whatever the cause may be, your endless skin problems may be caused by the fact that you have sensitive skin, or that you are using the wrong products for your skin type.

We all encounter skin mishaps at one point or another, but it isn’t ideal to live most of your life with discomfort. In this article, we will talk about some of the causes of your seemingly never ending skin concerns and viable treatment options. Finding the perfect solution might be just around the corner, if you’re willing to put in the effort.

What Causes Skin Redness?

Redness of the skin can be caused by a numerous amount of causes, from using products containing harsh ingredients to allergies. Products containing fragrances and dyes also cause redness for some. Even if you stay outside for an extended amount of time, redness can occur, which is caused by blood rushing to the surface of the skin. If your body is fighting off an infection, then this also encourages redness, as well.

If you especially have sensitive skin, some products may even cause rashes and other symptoms such as blisters, burning, warmth, flushing, sores and swelling that can occur on any part of the body.

Some symptoms, such as rash on legs, can appear on any age group and is sometimes due to an underlying disease or condition within the body. Other forms of symptoms that may cause redness include:

Skin Infection – Caused by a wide variety of bacteria, which can manifest mildly or severely on the skin.
Rosacea - A chronic disorder, in which the skin experiences flare-ups of redness on the skin.
Ringworm - A type of fungal infection on the skin.
Sunburn - Damage to the skin caused by extreme exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Cellulitis - A bacterial infection of the deeper tissues within the skin.
Atopic Dermatitis - Dry, itchy skin caused that occurs at the surface.
Insect Bites - Can cause swelling, itching, and allergic reactions to the skin.
Shingles – Also known as herpes zoster, Painful rash with blisters that form due to a re-emergence of the dormant chicken pox virus.
Eczema - A group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed and irritated. Sometimes causes oozing blisters and plaques on the skin.

What Are the Available Treatment Options?

Depending on your symptoms, treatment options are available to ease any flare-ups. Many skin conditions can quickly be alleviated with over-the-counter creams and medications, however, more severe forms of redness may require a health care practitioner who can diagnose and treat such conditions.

Experiencing redness can be annoying and embarrassing for many. Many times, it’s not much of a cause for concern. However, if you begin to experience any of the following symptoms, then you should contact your dermatologist immediately:

• Difficulty Breathing
• Extreme Pain
• Loss of Consciousness
• Vision Loss and Redness Near the Eyes
• A Very Large Burn

Simple soap and water will help to alleviate redness and irritations caused by contact dermatitis, which occurs after encountering certain substances. The best way to prevent redness with this type of condition is to avoid products that are causing your symptoms or by using protective gloves if you absolutely have to use them.

Your doctor may prescribe a topical steroid cream or antibiotics to reduce redness and inflammation associated with your symptoms. If you try to treat such symptoms on your own and your condition isn’t improving, then now is the best time to visit your dermatologist. If your condition is difficult to diagnose, then your dermatologist may have to perform a skin biopsy to figure out exactly what is causing your symptoms.

At any rate, whether your skin concerns are caused by using harsh chemicals or from something that you have contracted, such as an infection or allergy, listen to your skin because it may be trying to tell you something. Skin shouldn’t be red all the time and it definitely shouldn’t itch and hurt. If you find that your skin care issues are not going away, keep these tips in mind because it could save your skin and your life.
