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!
The programme itself is a great thing. There are so many resources and information I didnt think was out there not only for myself but to help my family and friends to better understand what I go through on a day to day basis. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this programme and I think everyone who has dry skin or knows someone suffering from it should be a part of this. It's truly more informative than my doctor was when I was diagnosed with eczema.
I learned so much on this programme about the itch cycle, how to wash with emollients and how much to use. All information I have never received from my HCP. A real eye opener and a must read if you have dry skin if any type.
A simple honest explanation of skin conditions and the types of treatment available. The support programme has given me the tools to purchase creams/emollients specifically for my immediate needs. This means I can avoid a GP visit as well as highlighting the fact that I am now aware that prescription options often provide the "cheapest" suitable treatment rather than the "best". Thank You
Dry skin support programme was informative and easy to understand.
Really great and informative programme, I would like to know more.
This is so helpful it answer all questions I had and much more
A very useful information programme which delivers in bitesize chunks so it's not overwhelming. The programme covered most relevant issues that people with dry skin suffer with and gave information that would assist in the management of dry skin issues. Anyone who suffers with this problem is looking for the best advice in handling of it and this programme gave lots of hints and tips. Thank you..
It's a very thorough program with lots of great advice and tips.
Great advice, well put together & presented. Easy to read & plenty of opportunities to ask the experts as well.
This program is something everyone should have access to from the very start of their dry skin journey. It gives more detailed ways to use the prescription creams to get the most benefit right from the first day of use. It provides the different types of treatment you can use to treat the symptoms of dry skin, this means you can go to your GP armed with information to direct your treatment. GP's don't have the time to talk in detail about the various treatments available. It gives you the knowledge to discuss with your doctor the best treatments for you and your lifestyle. The real-life stories give you a feeling of not being alone with this issue. I would recommend this support program without reservation.
Having done this programme for the 10 weeks I found it to be extremely useful and very informative, it has given many different insights on how to take care of problem skin, the tips and information that can be researched is of great use. It has been a different way to take care of your skin.
Great support and advice.
I was having bad dry skin on my hands. My skin was so dry that blood was always there and an infection. This program give me my life back.
Really useful for lots of dry skin conditions, support if you need it and info about the types of treatment. Definitely worth signing up to. I have found out more from the program than my GP who doesn't seem to care about my dry skin as I have several medical conditions.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is struggling with their skin, I didn't even know this existed and the fact it does is a green light from me. I've read in my own time lots of helpful information and advise and can honestly say so pleased I used this, so go sign up!
