When it comes to taking care of ourselves, we all know the importance of exercise, a smart diet and good sleep. But there’s one aspect of wellness that not enough people pay attention to: skin health.
Our skin is our largest organ and skin health is important to our overall health. Skin:
- Holds body fluids in, preventing dehydration
- Keeps harmful microbes out, preventing infections
- Helps us feel things like heat, cold and pain
- Keeps our body temperature even
- Makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it
As a result, it’s important to watch for any changes in its condition. Anything that irritates, clogs or inflames the skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause rashes, hives and other skin conditions. Many skin problems, such as acne, also affect appearance.
Whether you’re suffering from embarrassing acne, a chronic skin condition or want a thorough skin cancer screening, Prevea Health now has dermatology services to treat the most common or rare problems of the skin, hair or nails before they worsen.
