How A Compounding Pharmacist Can Help You With Common Skin Conditions

Skin conditions vary from person to person. Females are generally most likely to suffer since their skin is sensitive. These conditions affect you not only physically but also mentally. This is why taking care of your skin is an important task. Your skin is a barrier that helps protect you from outside bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Your overall wellness depends on how you treat your skin. Managing your skin is hard, but it becomes harder if you have any skin condition or disease. Even the smallest break on your skin carries the risk of infection or disease. Fortunately, today there is the treatment for all common skin conditions from bothersome to downright painful. There are various OTC as well as prescription products that can help you control and elimnate skin diseases. Furthermore, if you can’t find what you’re looking for in commercial products, you can visit a compounding pharmacy and have them create a unique treatment tailored for you.

Types of Common Skin Diseases

Psoriasis

This skin condition causes inflammation, swelling and itching. It can be mild to downright severe and turn into a crack, causing bleeding and, in some cases, systemic illness. The reasons for this disease are mostly unknown, but there is a high chance that genetics plays a vital role. In this skin condition, the skin cells are created at a much faster rate. They start accumulating at the top and create a scaly, raised surface that itches and sometimes burns.

Eczema

Eczema is another skin condition that causes patches on the skin. They become rough and irritating with time ending up in cracks on the skin. The cause of this skin condition is still unclear. It is believed that eczema happens due to some allergic reaction from any substance. In some cases, it occurs when a person eats certain foods. Some researchers say that this skin condition occurs due to a weak immune system.

Acne

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, and nearly every person has gone through it once in their lifetime. In some cases, acne goes away by itself, and sometimes it gets worse with time. There is a myth about acne that it goes away after a certain age, but that is just a myth. Many adults and older adults face acne issues that cause them to lose their self-confidence and self-esteem and stop them from any social interaction.

Compound Medication For Skin Conditions

In all the above-mentioned skin conditions, your compounding pharmacist could play a vital role. They could create a personalized treatment plan for you, considering the level of the condition, skin sensitivity, age, and more. If you can’t find the right medication in the market, they can create the exact formula for you in different formulations. Some people have problems swallowing pills. A compounding pharmacist can create a liquid or topical dermatological formulation that you can apply directly to the affected area. If you are allergic to any ingredient in the medication, a compounding pharmacist can remove that ingredient easily.

Final Words

Every patient is unique, and so is their skin. Some people have more sensitive skins than others, and they have a problem with the medications available in the market. Others might have a hard time swallowing pills. If you are taking medication for other ailments, there could be a risk of interaction. All of these problems can be solved by having your skin medication compounded.
