The Most Annoying Skin Issues

We've all had to deal a bout of some skin condition or another that was just downright annoying. You know what we're talking about--unexplained itchy patches, skin tags, discoloration in weird places and ingrown hairs. So how best to tackle these mostly minor skin issues? With a lot of patience and these tips: Skin Tags (acrochordon) Skin tags are those annoying bits of skin that seem to come out of nowhere. They can appear on anyone, but if you're overweight you are more likely to get them. Also a surge in hormones may be responsible for skin tags. Pregnant women may experience more skin tags. How to get rid of them? Some skin tags fall off on their own, but in most cases they hang on for dear life. A simple freezing or burning or even snipping with scissors at the derm's office will painlessly remove them. Eczema No one really knows exactly what causes eczema--those dry, red itchy patches of skin--but the best way to get rid of it is by using a mild cleanser and a fragrance-free moisturizer. If the symptoms persist, it's time to see your dermatologist for a prescription. Rashes Ranging in anything from a patch or red skin to a blister-filled trail, rashes can seem like a mystery. If yours doesn't go away after a few days, it's time to call the dermatologist. Heat rash is very common this time of year. Heat rash starts when your sweat ducts get blocked. If you can't stand the itchiness, see your dermatologist for a cortisone prescription.
