Your skin is the largest organ in your body. Skin protects you from harmful UV rays, diseases, germs, and infections. It also helps regulate your body temperature so other organs don’t overheat, assists in detoxing your body, and so much more.
The condition and tone of your skin also has a huge impact on your overall health.
Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis can be tough to live with since these conditions cause constant discomfort, can be terribly painful, and are extremely itchy. What is even worse is that any skin condition you may have also affects your immune system since your body is constantly battling to fight off skin infections and heal damaged tissue.

Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a very common skin condition that causes chronic inflammation. Symptoms of eczema include red rashes, a hot sensation, itchy and dry patches, skin peeling, fluid-filled vesicles, and in acute cases, your eczema can even start to ooze. If the condition persists without proper treatment, you can also develop a scaly crust on your skin that becomes terribly painful as it dries out and cracks.
This acute chronic inflammation can be triggered by a chemical allergen. These conditions are incredibly itchy and look red, swollen, and irritated. The condition can also result in a painful scaly crust on your skin.
Many people struggle with this type of skin inflammation. The scalp and face are mostly affected by this form of dermatitis.

This is a particularly itchy skin condition. Those with this skin condition find it difficult to stop scratching at infected areas, and as a result, these areas thicken, become dry, start to crack, and spread.
