mydryskin support programme
mydryskin provides 12 weeks of dedicated information, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks. Every week there is a PDF for you to download or print containing practical information about how to manage dry skin, written by talkhealth and medical experts.
Many adults will experience dry skin at some point in their life. Dry skin can occur for various reasons and can be extremely uncomfortable and even unbearable at times.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Symptoms & treatments
- What to ask your GP or consultant
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Common triggers & irritants
- Itch-scratch cycle
- Emotional impact and much more!
I found the programme very relevant to me as I am going through the menopause and had been suffering with very dry skin. It’s made me more aware of doing something about it instead of just leaving it.

It was good to have the information at hand to help manage dry skin and its better to find the stuff that works and how to keep the skin from drying out.

I found the mydryskin programme very usefull. I found out triggers I was unaware of and that there are organisations out there to help too. It helps mentally as well as physically knowing you're not alone and knowing that there are people to help is amazing. Fully recommend.

When I started this programme I thought this will never work, over the weeks and the sessions I have now became aware of the triggers that can set my dry skin off. How best to apply lotion to make it work how it’s supposed to and notice a big difference on the condition of my dry itchy skin.

Absolutely brilliant! Is full of really useful information, tips, advice and more! Has saved me trips to the doctors and helped me learn about my skin condition and how to deal with it more. Better then just using everything and anything on my skin.

I have suffered with my skin for years. No matter how many doctors appointments or treatments I had, I could never stabilise my condition. Since taking part in mydryskin support programme I have found out so much more information. The guidance and tips I have recieved have helped me so much and i can already notice a difference. Thank you talkhealth, it's made my confidence with managing my skin grow.

I have suffered itchy dry skin most of my life, but I also have nerve damage which causes an itch 24/7. I find that doctors tend to underestimate the impact that itchy skin has on my life. It effects every part of my welbeing and has a massive impact on my mental health. This program was the first time anyone recognised that impact. I felt cared for while taking the program. I have learned a lot, not always relevent for nerve damage but I have picked up a few tips and have gained more confidence to get more help forom my doctor.

I have a moderate dry skin problem and also suffer from polymorphic light eruption. The mydryskin support programme has really helped me to address the difficulties of the constant need to look after my skin and doing what I should do on a daily basis, rather than being lax and only taking a reactive approach when my skin has worsened, has dramatically improved my skin. The information and signposting to other resources and forms of support was excellent. The arrangement of weekly emails worked brilliantly, more frequently, or less, would have been difficult to either attend to or keep focus on. I particularly benefitted from the knowledgeable information to help me understand more rather than just treatment plans.

Easy to use read and understand. Simple bite size chunks.

So much information available through the programme and hints and tips on a variety of situations. So helpful in pointing you in the right direction for further information/research on topics of interest to you personally. Made you feel like you are not suffering alone and that in fact skin conditions are incredibly common.
Sarah (Sep 19)
It was very informed and relevant.
Kay (Sep 19)
The programme is very informative about dry skin conditions. It can be easily followed, it is written in a very user friendly way. I would definitely recommend it to a newly diagnosed 'dry skin condition sufferer'.
