What is Xerotic Eczema?
Dry skin is called xerosis, or xerotic eczema. This is a term derived from a Greek word ("xeros") meaning "dry." It should not be confused in name with "psoriasis" (another, more serious disease), or "cirrhosis" (a disease of the liver)
What is Xerosis?
Everyone has a natural oil coating over our skin that
is produced by oil glands. If this oil is removed, then the skin becomes dry which can lead to cracking, which can lead to inflammation. Xerosis is usually a long-term problem that recurs often,
especially in the winter. Cold winter weather can be hard on skin because the amount of moisture is less than the amount of moisture in warm air.
Who gets Xerosis?
Xerosis / Dry skin can affect anyone, male of female of any ages.
What causes it?
Dry skin is caused by a lack of moisture. This is most
common during the winter months, when heating systems dry the air. Bathing with hot water, spending extended periods of time in the hot sun, and the skin's natural aging process also remove
moisture and oils from the skin.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of dry skin include itching, flaking, and fine lines. Xerosis of the foot is common in patients with diabetes and can lead to severe complications, such as ulcers, infections, and cracks in the skin (fissures).
