A complete emollient therapy consists of emollient soap substitutes as well as leave-on emollients such as creams, lotions and ointments. Emollient products complement one another other to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Emollient therapy is important during periods of flare-ups as well as prevention of new flare-ups.
Apply your emollient products before any topical steroids that you have been prescribed. Allow the emollient to fully absorb into the skin before applying your topical medicine - this will help both products to work most effectively. As a general rule of thumb, wait at least 30 minutes after applying your emollient products before applying a topical steroid.
Topical emollients should be gently smoothed into the skin in the direction of hair growth. Don’t rub the emollient in as this can cause the skin to be even more irritated than it already is.
At HelloSkin we have tried to make our Product Finder as self explanatory as possible. By choosing your condition under “I'm living with”, on the Homepage, you will be guided through steps including your age, the body part mostly affected, your most severe symptom, what needs the product should fulfill, and lastly when during the day you would like to use the product. This will provide you tailored product options evaluated for your chosen criteria by HelloSkin’s Medical team.
An itchy scalp may indicate a reaction to superficial fungal colonisation (dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis), bacterial infection (folliculitis), fungal infection (tinea capitis), parasitic infestation (head lice), or inflammatory conditions (psoriasis). Because these scalp conditions share similar symptoms of itching, scaling and inflammation, but their causes and treatments are different, the diagnosis should be established prior to starting the treatment.
We would suggest therefore you see your GP or dermatologist for assessment and diagnosis if your condition hasn't been diagnosed yet. After establishing the diagnosis your doctor will prescribe a personalised treatment for you.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff, are mild forms and are the most common itchy scalp conditions. Scalp treatment often involves medicated shampoos containing either an antifungal agent or coal tar.
Products available HelloSkin for itchy scalp conditions are:
Before using any of these products please read the information available on their respective page on helloskin.co.uk.
We would kindly remind you to see your GP or dermatologist for diagnosis and personalised treatment in case the problem affecting your scalp don't seem to improve or if it is more severe than just mild itching and small reddish flaky patches.
During pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding you are quite likely to have to change up your normal therapy plan. The good news is that it’s safe to use almost all emollients and over the counter topical creams during pregnancy. All of our products are screened for harmful ingredients, we also look at research studies conducted, side effects, and any other relevant information.
Whilst most emollient ingredients are safe to use, it’s important to be aware of the following:
Salicylic acid - the risk with topical therapy is considered very small to harm the baby, however, don't apply it over large areas of the body for prolonged periods.
Coal tar - coal tar products are considered safe to use for short periods or on localised areas such as the scalp, however coal tar contains potentially dangerous polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons which have unknown effects on developing babies.
Endocrine disruptors - we don’t sell any potential endocrine disruptors at HelloSkin so you don’t need to worry about this with our product range, however be aware when you buy elsewhere that certain parabens and phthalates may be absorbed through the skin, so avoid using large amounts.
In most cases, dry hands are caused by frequent hand washing, exposure to chemicals and environmental conditions (dry, cold weather). But certain medical conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, lupus etc. can cause dry hands, too.
Whatever the cause of having very dry hands, there are a few simple ways to improve the condition.
Carry your hand cream around with you so you can re-apply moisturiser throughout the day. If you work in a place that requires frequent hand washing, such as a hospital, a hairdressing salon or a restaurant talk to your manager about installing hand lotion pumps on the wall near the sinks, and if they already exist, make good use of them.
Moisturise your hands at night too. Use a thicker moisturiser, an ointment such as Epaderm ointment at night. After applying the ointment cover your hands with a pair of cotton gloves.
Wear protection gloves at work and at home. If your hands are exposed to irritant chemicals at work or frequently immersed in water, you should wear adequate nonallergenic protection gloves.
Use your prescribed topical medication. If you have hand eczema or psoriasis, medications may be necessary to give your skin a chance to heal. Your doctor might prescribe steroid creams or other treatments to control better these chronic conditions.
Dry hands can usually be treated effectively with regular moisturisers and protection from irritants. But if your dry hands don’t improve or if you have other more severe symptoms, such as painful fissures in the palms, severe itching, bleeding or infection, seek medical attention as you would need prescription medications as well.
