The condition described as sensitive or red skin is overrated by many. Many people who ‘complain’ of sensitive skin have no such thing at all. Instead, they are through a severe phase of skin dryness, which can be rectified by hydration through various home remedies. However, if the dryness persists, you may have hypersensitive skin. You should consult a dermatologist sooner rather than later.

 We first assess the person’s skin and determine the cause of the dryness and sensitivity. We accordingly prescribe face treatments and soothing therapies, which will address the redness or burning.

Rosacea is a condition characterized by extreme skin redness. It is not to be confused by the redness associated with skin sensitivity.

The occurrence of rosacea has been traced to a demodex mite. The mite is a parasite, which lives on human skin. Overpopulation of this mite on the skin can cause or even aggravate the condition. You must consult a skilled and experienced dermatologist, as this skin aberration can be tricky to diagnose. The skin specialist will thoroughly examine your skin and provide treatment accordingly.

Rosacea is often accompanied by severe acne. This can be painful and has to be managed with a lot of care as the acne has to be treated on skin that is already inflamed.

Overexposure to the sun stimulates melanin production thus darkening the skin or giving the skin a tan. Tans are impermanent but it can take some time for the normal colour of the skin t be restored. The length of time depends on the amount of solar exposure and resultant skin damage.
