Healthy Skin: The Mirror of a Healthy Body

Our holistic treatments address foot skin conditions like athlete's foot, calluses, warts, and also showcase proper skin care techniques. Skin conditions constitute a wide variety of disorders that affect the skin and its appendages, such as hair and nails. These conditions can range from mild and temporary to chronic and debilitating, and can affect people of varying ages and backgrounds. They can show up in various forms, such as rashes, lesions, bumps, discolouration, and changes in appearance or texture. They can be attributed to multiple factors, such as genetics, environmental influences, infections, immune system abnormalities, hormonal changes, and underlying medical conditions.

Overview

Skin conditions encompass a range of disorders that affect the skin, which is the body’s largest organ. They can vary in severity, symptoms, as well as underlying causes. Some of the common skin conditions are as follows:

Acne: A common skin condition which is associated with hormonal changes, excessive oil production, bacteria, and inflammation. Characterised by the formation of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts, which typically occur on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders.

Eczema: A chronic, inflammatory skin condition which is characterised by red, itchy, and inflamed skin patches. It starts in infancy and persists into adulthood, and is triggered by irritants, allergens, stress, and dry skin. 

Psoriasis: Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells, leading to thick, red, scaly patches on the skin. It can occur anywhere on the body, and may also affect the nails and joints. It is often triggered by factors such as stress, infections, and certain medications.

Rosacea: A chronic inflammatory skin condition that primarily affects the face, causing redness, flushing, visible blood vessels, and acne-like bumps. Triggers for this condition can include sunlight, hot or spicy foods, alcohol, and certain skincare products.

Dermatitis: This refers to inflammation of the skin, which can result from various causes such as irritants, allergens, infections, as well as underlying medical conditions. The commonly-known types of dermatitis include contact dermatitis (caused by contact with irritants or allergens), seborrheic dermatitis (affecting oily areas like the scalp and face), and nummular dermatitis (characterized by coin-shaped patches of irritated skin).

Ms Shirley is a very nice podiatrist. Detailed and gave good explanation to my foot issue. I suffered with a wart and went to a dermatologist to solve it but it didn’t work until I went to East Coast Podiatry and did needling and my issue has now been resolved thanks to Ms Shirley! 100% recommend!
