What Causes Dry Skin?
Most people will experience dry skin at some point in their life, but moderate to severe cases may want to consider consulting a dermatologist for relief. Dry skin can be caused by many internal and external factors, including:
- Dry or cold weather
- Bathing too often
- Sun damage
- Soaps or cosmetic products that irritate the skin
Although dry skin is generally harmless, it can be uncomfortable and even painful. In fact, severe cases may result in itching, cracking or bleeding in the skin. Furthermore, some cases of dry skin may be indicative of an underlying skin disease.
How is Dry Skin Treated?
In many cases, dry skin can be treated at home by avoiding things that irritate the skin while simultaneously keeping it moisturized. Common solutions include:
- Applying moisturizers and lotion alternatives
- Using gentler skin care products
- Protecting the skin from direct sunlight or cold temperatures
- Using a humidifier in the home
At Florida Dermatology Specialists, we also offer professional services for managing dry skin. We can identify whether you’re suffering from an underlying skin condition, and prescribe the appropriate medication to help you manage dry skin.
How Much Does Dry Skin Treatment Cost?
The cost of dry skin treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.
