With the dry winter months behind us, most of us can now find relief from seasonal dry skin. However, a large number of Americans face this hindrance year-round. While outside conditions may result in less uncomfortable flareups, its our indoor conditions that can be an underlying culprit. While this rings true for anyone with dry skin, it especially is concerning for those who suffer from eczema and psoriasis.

According to the National Eczema Association, nearly 31.6 million people (10.1%) in the U.S. have some form of eczema. This is a chronic, inflammatory disease that can come in many forms. These forms include contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis, dyshidrotic, nummular, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. Although there are many types, they all share common ailments which include dry, itchy skin, noticeable skin spots and discoloration. These irritated dry patches are in desperate need of moisture and the use of a humidifier can naturally deliver the hydration that the skin is craving.

Psoriasis is also a chronic, inflammatory disease. The National Psoriasis Foundation states that more than 8 million people in the U.S. have psoriasis. This disease is caused by an overactive immune system and shares many of the same dermatological side effects as eczema. Psoriasis also comes in many forms such as nail, scalp, inverse, plaque, and pustular. Those who suffer from dermatological forms of psoriasis may find relief in humidity. Moisture present in the air helps lock in the skin’s natural moisture, which can calm a topical psoriasis flareup.

While the use of a humidifier is not a replacement for medication or medical attention, it can offer much needed relief. Its use can reduce possible infections from forming as it promotes faster healing of irritated skin. Along with the promotion of a quicker healing process, a humidifier can calm the skin, resulting in a reduction of uncomfortable side effects. Along with guidance from a qualified medical professional, incorporating a humidifier into your home can give both eczema and psoriasis suffers the moisture their skin needs.
