I am 18 years old all the skin on my body peels off and bleeds easily. What do you think the solution is?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Skin that peels and bleeds easily can be caused by a variety of medical conditions. Some things that can be thought of as the cause of your current complaint are as follows:
The presence of dry skin conditions. This can happen to some individuals who do have dry skin conditions. Apart from that, you can also think about the lack of body hydration because the lack of consuming water can also be a trigger factor, too much work in an air-conditioned room or outdoors where the air is too hot. Atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema. Chronic inflammatory conditions of the skin. This condition is characterized by dry, cracked and reddish skin that even bleeds. Seborrheic Dermatitis. This condition is characterized by the presence of a white layer on the skin and oily, usually appears on the forehead, temples in front of the ears and face. There is irritation due to the use of cleaning agents or lotions on the skin. Generally, soap with a strong antiseptic can cause the skin to become dry and lose the natural moisture layer on the skin. In addition, the use of skin lotions that contain perfume and bleach can cause skin irritation. Allergies to air, dust or certain weather. Certain stress or psychological stress. This condition can trigger inflammation of the skin. Generally occurs in the nape of the instep and hands. If one of the conditions above occurs, it is necessary to use a special moisturizer and an anti-itch cream. However, this cream is adapted and should be supervised by a doctor. Because in general, anti-itch creams contain steroids which if used without doctor's instructions can cause side effects. For that it is advisable for you to consult and check with a doctor. In addition, you can consider the following tips:
Avoid excessive use of body scrubs Using a bath soap with a neutral pH without fragrance and whitening. Simply hydrate the body by drinking at least 2 liters of water a day Using a neutral skin moisturizer without fragrance and bleach. Do not use or wipe the skin harshly. Do it slowly Avoid food and drinks that may cause allergies. That is what I can say, hopefully useful.
