Paper thin skin

I have skin like paper which tears whenever I catch myself on anything pointed. Anyone else may get a scratch, but I get a vee shaped tear. Is there anything I can do to make my skin more resilient? I am 65 years old and have had steroid treatment for eczema in the past.
Thank you,
Erica

Varicose Eczema

Hello

I would like to know how I can improve the skin conditions on the front of my leg near my ankle as I have varicose eczema.

I used makeup but this is not effective and would like to know if something has been found that is better than makeup please.

Regards

Caroline

This makes walking extremely painful and ...

Removal of a BCC

I have a scar following the removal of a BCC a few months ago. It feels lumpy whereas I would expect it to be flat. Why is it lumpy?

Abdominal Surgery

I had abdominal surgery in October last year and the vertical scar by my belly button is very pronounced and puckered. Is there anything that I can do to help it to flatten/reduce down or will it stay raised like this?

Knee replacement surgery

Hi,

I had knee replacement surgery last year and although the resulting scar is healing well, I just wondered if you have any recommendations on how to effectively improve the healing process?

Many thanks,
