People seeking treatment for skin conditions surges amid sanitiser use

Heavy use of soap and hand 닥터스피부과 sanitiser to battle COVID-19 has led to a spike in painful skin conditions.  

Dermatologists have reported a surge in patients suffering serious reactions over the past few weeks.

Dermatologist Dr Rachel Manifold said the constant use of cleaning products can leave hands dry, inducing skin problems.

‘It strips the natural oil and 닥터스피부과 moisture from the skin, so it results in a secondary hand dermatitis,’ Manifold told Dr Simon Khoury, from SA Dermatology, said several patients’ skin had cracked to the point of bleeding.

‘I’ve seen a few cases where the skin’s actually broken and it’s literally bleeding in front of my eyes,’ he said.

One case was so bad he sent the patient straight to hospital. 

‘Their skin became floridly irritated and had dermatitis everywhere,’ Dr Khoury said.  

To prevent bad reactions, experts recommend avoiding home-made mixtures as they can be far more damaging than regulated products. 

Incorrect concentrations can also cause irritation and burn or dissolve skin.   

Despite the side effects, dermatologists say hand hygiene is vital to fighting the virus and 닥터스피부과 should be maintained now more than ever. 

Specialists say the best solution to fight cracks and dryness is to moisturise after each clean.
