A wide variety of treatments exist for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and acne, as well as for skin cancer and other diseases.
Treatments can include:
- Creams, ointments, salves, balms, and other topical applications
- Oral medications
- Localized injections
- Vitamins, minerals, and other natural supplements
- Lifestyle and dietary modifications
- Allergen removal and avoidance.
These are not the only types of remedies, of course, and new treatments are being developed all the time.
To make sure a treatment is appropriate, it is essential to have a proper medical diagnosis of a known skin condition. Undergoing treatment without such a diagnosis could worsen a condition, put you at an unnecessary risk of side effects, and increase antibiotic resistance, in addition to having other potentially negative consequences.
On this site, widely accepted treatment protocols are discussed for each condition. Additional information on recent research and news about skin treatments can also be found by doing a site search for recent blog posts.
