Remedies for Common Skin Problems

TriDerma Eczema Fast Healing - 2.2 oz tube Eczema is very common and there are several medical grade and OTC skin care eczema remedies on the market.  Eczema is a family of skin conditions but is generally described as inflammation or dermatitis of the upper layers of the skin.  It can be found in adults or children and it is not contagious.  Eczema is characterized by itchy, red, dry skin on the face, hands, feet, elbows, knees or arms. 

Secura Antifungal Extra Thick Fungal Infections – Most superficial fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, yeast infections and ringworm can be cured with topical antifungal medication placed directly on the affected area.  Fungal infections are very common and grow best in warm moist environments so be careful and stay dry!  Symptoms range from peeling, scaling redness to itching and burning and/or blisters and sores. Check with your doc if you’re not sure what you have.

Calmoseptine Ointment - 4 oz tube Diaper Dermatitis (Diaper Rash) or other itchy skin irritations caused by moisture can be soothed, prevented and even cured with the help of incontinence washes, perineal cleansers and moisture barrier creams.

Medseptic Skin Protectant Cream - 4ozDiabetic Skin Care is important for people with diabetes because of the potential for a variety of skin conditions .  Awareness is also key because reduced circulation and nerve sensitivity can make it hard to identify skin problems as they arise.  Moisturizers are also important for those with diabetes because high blood glucose results in loss of fluid in the body.  Dehydration can quickly lead to dry skin which can crack and invite nasty germs in, causing  infections.  Out of control infections can result in terrible problems including amputation.  All preventable with daily skin care!
