If your skin feels tight or rough immediately after showering, you could have dry skin. If so, you should apply a moisturizer no matter what the season. While your skin is still slightly damp from your bath or shower, apply a lotion or cream so that it will seal in the remaining moisture on your skin. Also consider using a moisturizing cleanser in the shower, it can make a real difference to the way skin looks and feels, anytime of the year.

How does plaque psoriasis affect the body's immune system?
Mark Morocco, MD, Emergency Medicine, answered
Psoriasis occurs when faulty signals in the immune system cause new skin cells to grow too quickly, in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells, so the cells pile up on the surface of the skin, forming lesions.
Individuals with psoriasis are at an elevated risk to develop other chronic immune conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease and diabetes.
People with more severe cases of psoriasis have an increased incidence of psoriatic arthritis, diabetes, cancer, depression, and other immune-related conditions such as Crohn's disease.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What skin disorder caused the small, pus-filled bumps on my chest?
One possibility for small, pus-filled bumps on your chest is that you've developed folliculitis. This common condition occurs when hair follicles become infected and inflamed. One specific form of this condition is called pityrosporum folliculitis. It's caused by a yeast infection and typically produces red, itchy bumps on the chest or back. This form of folliculitis is most common in male teens and adults.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
