Answer

It sounds to me like you are battling with a very sensitised skin. As a result of this, you are getting redness and breakouts and more than likely, your barrier is not functioning properly. So it’s a bit of a viscious circle. So what we need to do is fix the barrier and get your skin’s sensitivity to just calm down. Once we have got that under control and your skin is less reactive, we can slowly start introducing the right products to deal with any uneven skin tone and marks and spots that you have remaining on your skin. So I suggest you have a look at going on to Lamelle’s Serra Range for at least 2 months. That will sort out your barrier function and calm the skin down. Once we’ve got that sorted, you need to contact me again to let me know if there are any marks or dark patches left on your skin (by the old break outs), and if you need me to start helping you to introduce active products to help boost and maintain your skin’s texture and colour. You can get the Lamelle products from any Skin Renewal, and you can locate your nearest Branch on www.skinrenewal.co.za

Hi Dr Allem, I have very sensitive lips. When I wear lipstick my lips become extremely dry and they peel the next day. Can you recommend a product to help and maybe even a lipstick brand that I could wear? Thanks so much!

Question from Cindi

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?

Question

Hello Dr M.

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation. I was told to get persivate cream and cetaphil clanser and lotion, but my skin burns and dries after moisturizing. what should I do next?
