Dry Skin In New Jersey

Dry Skin

Dry skin, also called xerosis, is a common problem. Your skin needs moisture to stay smooth and supple, and retaining moisture becomes difficult as we age. Our skin also loses moisture more readily in the winter. Central heating of homes and other buildings is very drying to the skin.

Extremely dry skin can be a warning sign of a skin problem called dermatitis. The earlier dermatitis is diagnosed and treated the better. Without treatment, dermatitis often gets worse.

Don’t let dry skin affect the health of your skin. Consult with one of our doctors to see what treatment is right for you.

Dry Skin Treatment

To find out whether your dry skin is a sign of a skin disease, a dermatologist will carefully examine your skin. The doctor also will ask questions, such as when the problem began. This information will help the dermatologist make the right diagnosis and determine the best treatment. Tests may be needed if a dermatologist thinks your dry skin is due to a health problem.
