Visiting your doctor and taking preventative measures can help you to stop developing unwanted symptoms.

Those who suffer from dry skin or skin reactions such as rashes will know how frustrating it can be. While these may be an indication of sensitive skin, they could also be the result of an allergy.

Signs of sensitive skin

The best way to find out whether or not you suffer from sensitive skin is to have your skin checked by a dermatologist. They will be able to determine whether you suffer from sensitive skin, or whether there is something else causing your skin condition.

They will look out for the following signs:

  • Overly dry skin

  • Skin reactions such as skin erosions, skin bumps or pustules

  • A tendency toward skin flushing and blushing

Sensitive skin reactions could come down to injured or very dry skin that can no longer protect nerve endings, excessive exposure to damaging environmental factors or allergic skin reactions or disorders such as rosacea, eczema or allergic contact dermatitis, which causes skin allergies.

If you are suffering from a skin rash, then it will likely be the result of an allergy. This can be identified by itchiness and redness, with or without hives. Allergic contact dermatitis can be caused by a number of different factors. In order to determine what you are allergic to, your doctor might suggest a skin allergy test.

Using preventative strategies

Pets, dust mites, moulds, weeds, trees and grasses cause some of the most common skin allergies. In order to prevent symptoms from developing, you may need to switch to fragrance-free products, avoid jewellery that contains nickel, use different cosmetic products or avoid contact with latex products, depending on what is causing your allergic reaction.

Dust mites cause 50% of allergic symptoms and a high level of exposure to these creatures can even lead to the development of asthma in children. Limiting your exposure to dust is the best way to prevent symptoms. Here are some tips to help reduce the number of dust mites in your home:

Regularly wash bedding: Up to 10 million dust mites can be found in just one bed, so keeping it clean is important. You should wash bedding and blankets at least once a week at high temperatures in order to kill dust mites.

Keeping your mattress clean: Encase your mattress in allergen impermeable covers and make sure you undertake regular mattress cleaning. Professional mattress cleaning services will not only remove dust mites, but will also help to remove bacteria, stains and germs.

Keep air dry and clean: Keep the humidity in your home below 55% by using an air conditioner or dehumidifier. Dust mites love warm, moist environments, so lowering the temperature and humidity in your home will help.

Regular dusting: You should dust frequently to avoid build-up, using either a damp cloth or mop. You should also vacuum regularly, using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.

If you are still experiencing problems after limiting your exposure to dust mites, then you may have to treat the allergy with antihistamines, decongestants or nasal corticosteroids.
