For most ladies, a thorough skincare regimen is a must-have. It’s one of the most sensitive organs in the body, prone to breaking out in all manner of unsightly ways unless we stay firmly on top of it. However, there are some blemishes that you can’t get rid of by cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliating. Here, we’re going to look at three of the most common concerns your skin creams can’t deal with, and what you can do about them instead.
Do you have a wart that just seems like it’s not going anywhere? If your standard wart treatment isn’t working, it might just be the case that you have a skin tag, instead. The good news is that skin tags are harmless, they’re just small, skin-colored growths that tend to hang from the skin. The even better news is that they are just as easily dealt with as warts. They just tend to require specific skin tag removal products. There are single-application treatments like stronger wart & mole creams that can get rid of it after one use. As for why skin tags appear, we’re not entirely certain. They to appear around the armpits, neck, groin and under the breasts, which indicates that friction might have a lot to do with it, but hormonal imbalance could play a role, too.
Dry, irritated skin
If your skin is red, raw, itchy, and flaky, there are quite a few different things that it could be. If it doesn’t clear up after a few days of washing and hydrating, then there’s a good chance it might be something chronic. Treating conditions like psoriasis and eczema is more than possible, often with the use of specifically prescribed steroid creams. However, it’s important to recognize that if you are diagnosed with either skin condition, it could be a permanent fixture in your life. Both psoriasis and eczema have no known cure at the moment and come in many forms, but the right treatments can help you stop them from being as pronounced. Age helps them fade for many people, too.
Those tiny red bumps
There’s a good chance that those red patches on your skin might be something different, too. If the are presenting as tiny red dots on the skin, particularly on the arms, you might have folliculitis, instead. This is where your hair follicles become inflamed, looking like raised pin pricks. They can be embarrassing especially when on the face, arms, scalp or neck. But they can also be incredibly itchy and irritating. There are medications, however, that can be taken orally or applied topically to the skin to reduce their appearance. Home remedies like acetic acid (better known as vinegar) and tea tree oil can both play a role in fighting it, too.
If you’re ever concerned with the appearance of blemishes, or a new rash, bump, or growth on your skin, don’t be afraid to go see your dermatologist. Some of these things can be a life-long struggle and you sooner you find your effective treatment method, the better.
