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 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.

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.

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'.

I found the mydryskin support programme really useful overall as it had topics around how to manage your skin conditions. I think one of the things it does, is give you the confidence to really take control of your condition by providing you with information and guidance and help you understand what your underlying issue might be. It gives you the confidence to take it to medical professionals to help you tackle the root of what the problem may be.

The mydryskin program helped me a lot in the fight against my problems. I am sick on Hashimoto and hypothyroidism and unfortunately I have a problem with it every day.

I found it very useful and a great source of information. It's also comforting to be reminded that I'm not alone and it's not something to be ashamed of.

Good advice, professional support, lots of tips, good body of knowledge, regular updates, links to organizations that can help. I've been following a better skin regime since following the program. Keeping myself better hydrated, using an emollient everyday which has been very effective and made my skin soft and stopped the itching and flakiness. Following a better diet, hygiene and beauty regime. Sharing my experiences and advice with others. Using emollient aqueous cream in the bath. Keeping my feet in better health, buffing dry skin and using heel balm for cracked heels. Feeling less embarassed wearing short sleeves and shorts and short skirts because my eczema has improved and is less red and itchy and flaky. Keeping skin well protected in the sun with high factor sun cream and after sun lotion. Using more natural organic products for sensitive skin rather than cheap chemically based ones.Taking evening primrose oil tablets which have really helped my eczema and eating foods rich in vitamin E.

I suffer from dry skin because of the pustular psoriasis, I have followed both the mypsoriasis and mydryskin programmes. The info gathered from both programmes have complimented each other and helped me to deal with the condition.
