Free phone consultation with top dermatologist


London: Eczema is a common skin complaint in the U.K, affecting one in five children and one in twelve adults. The National Eczema Society runs National Eczema Week from 15th – 23rd September, aiming to raise awareness of skin condition, highlight the support available and raise funds for the organisation.

To mark National Eczema Week, one of the UK’s leading dermatologists will be offering sufferers an opportunity for a one-to-one consultation. This is a rare opportunity to discuss what can be a painful and embarrassing situation with an expert on skin conditions without a lengthy wait for an NHS Consultant or the expense of seeing a private consultant.

Dr. M. Schiele (pictured right) is a Biomedical Research Scientist who will be available throughout the week to talk about the symptoms of eczema and the various treatments available. Sufferers will be able to ‘book’ a slot online and the doctor will call them back to discuss their condition, possible causes and remedies.

Dr Schiele comments, “We get calls from many sufferers that are at their wits end; not everybody achieves satisfactory results from the most commonly prescribed medications. Additionally, many people are concerned about the long term implications of using steroid based creams, such as hydrocortisone, which is known to thin the skin over time and can damage the dermis permanently.

Following years of research and development, Salcura has launched the ‘Professional Skin Care Management’ range of natural skin therapy products. National Eczema Week is a great way of raising awareness of the symptoms and treatment of eczema which affects many people in the UK. The Salcura professional skin care management range offers effective natural alternatives for people who want rapid relief without the use of steroids. We are happy to discuss the various lifestyle changes and treatments available to those suffering with a skin complaint during Eczema week.’

Scientists verify Vitamin A as wrinkle-buster

New York: A new scientific study has shown it may be possible to reverse skin wrinkling.

The research, published in the Archives of Dermatology, suggests that topical application of retinol, a form of vitamin A, could make older people less prone to skin ulcerations and poor healing of wounds.

Three dozen white people — average age, 87 — had a skin moisturizer laced with retinol applied to one of their inner arms a couple of times a week for six months; a placebo was applied to the other arm. Neither the researcher who rubbed on the lotions nor the participants knew what was being applied.

By the end of the testing period, fine wrinkling — which was assessed on a scale from zero, for none, to 9, for severe — declined considerably on the retinol-treated skin, from an average of 7.25 to 5.61.

The researchers speculated that the retinol increased the production of collagen, which helps make skin elastic, and of glycosaminoglycan, which retains water.

Most of the 36 participants experienced some redness or itchiness where the retinol had been applied, though only three found these reactions severe enough to withdraw from the study.

Retinoic acid, a different form of vitamin A, is used to treat acne and sunlight-damaged skin. Sold under Retin-A and other brands, it is unsuitable for geriatric patients, the researchers noted, because of the irritation it often causes.

Eleven of the seniors who received follow-up exams found the benefits of the drug to be transitory: Six months after the study, the researchers found no significant differences between the retinol-treated skin and the placebo-treated skin.

Four of the authors of the study,are working on patents for treating ageing skin. The National Institutes of Health partially funded the research.
