affects many people. For some, it’s a temporary reaction to an allergen or something in your environment, or your hormone balance is changing because of pregnancy or menopause. For others, sensitive skin is a way of life and a constant annoyance.
When you come into contact with various products or things in your environment that cause your skin to sting or burn or turn red, it is an allergic reaction – not necessarily sensitive skin. Besides allergic reactions, skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and contact dermatitis can cause your skin to be irritated and inflamed, and can be very painful.
Actual “sensitive skin” is diagnosed by dermatologists as having these symptoms:
Skin has pustules, bumps or skin erosion
Skin is very dry and doesn’t properly protect nerve endings in the skin, causing discomfort
Skin displays a tendency to flush or blush
Skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea or eczema often indicate sensitive skin.
