Why does Acne occur?
Acne occurs when pores in your skin get clogged with oil, dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria. Although we may associate bad acne breakouts and pimples with teenagers, acne can happen to us, regardless of age.
- There are various types of acne, depending on the severity of your acne outbreak
- Acne and pimples can be treated with medication, prescribed by a GP
What causes a flare up of Eczema or Rashes?
The trigger for an eczema flare-up or rashes can be different for everyone. It could be a certain type of fabric, dust, pet dander, the weather, or even stress faced during the day.
Can allergies be cured?
Your immune system produces antibodies to protect your body when you encounter a foreign substance. An allergic reaction is when your immune system reacts to something that it has incorrectly identified as harmful, such as food types or pet fur.
Unfortunately, you can’t cure allergies but you can control the symptoms! Doctors can prescribe medication that helps to relieve some of the common symptoms.
When should I worry about hair loss?
Hair loss is a natural part of aging, due to the changes in hormones particularly during childbirth or menopause. However, hair loss can also be caused by nutritional deficiency, stress, and other unhealthy lifestyle habits.
See a doctor if you notice:
- Sudden and excessive hair loss
- Appearance of patchy or bald spots on your scalp
Hair loss in women may also point to an underlying health condition.
