You may unknowingly have the sensitive or allergic skin or any other skin condition galleys, so we recommend you visit a dermatologist so you can determine the cause of these symptoms. If you suspect you may be sensitive or allergic skin you agree that know well what each and what care you should have are. 

Allergic skin or sensitive skin

  1. Origin of the problem. When the skin is allergic, what happens is that one occurs reaction in our immune system upon contact with the skin a substance that our body finds “strange”. There are different types of allergies: environmental, drug, food, etc. In the case of sensitive skin, it is an immediate and specific response of the skin against an irritant.

  2. Allergic skin through two phases. The first phase of sensitization to the allergen , where the substance is recognized as “foreign” is contacted with the skin or body and “antibodies” are created to combat this substance. In this first moment no symptoms occur. It is in the following allergen exposure phase delayed expression , when the allergic reaction occurs and appears redness, swelling, peeling plates, vesicles, scabs, edemas, cracks and burning sensations, itching, tightness …

  3. A sensitive skin is also known as intolerant skin, reactive or hyperexcitable . In this condition, the nerve endings in the skin are more sensitive and all this leads to having manifestations of different types such as itching, burning, tightness, heat, burning, etc. Redness or peeling may also occur. Sensitive skin may be affected by external factors (climate, solar radiation, pollution, inadequate cosmetics, taking certain medications, beauty treatments …) or internal (fatigue, stress, unbalanced diet, certain skin diseases …).

  4. Diagnosis can be difficult because the symptoms of both conditions are very similar, but with the right medical tests can determine what type of skin you have.

  5. Whatever, allergic or sensitive, avoid those treatments containing certain cosmetic components that are often irritating to these types of skins, such as preservatives and perfumes .
