Ways to Fight Skin Inflammation

Your body has a wonderful self-healing machine. Its immune system creates inflammation to protect itself from infection, injury, and disease. However, there are times when inflammation, particularly that which affects the skin, is due to an immune system dysfunction or an allergic reaction.

One in four Americans have suffered from or currently have a skin disease, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Develop Good Habits

Preventing or reducing skin inflammation depends on the type of condition you have or what you are predisposed to. But there are general habits to develop to fight inflammation:

1. Adopt an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle.

Refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, rice, and pasta; processed foods that contain trans fats; alcoholic beverages; and high-sugar drinks and desserts increase inflammation.

Anti-inflammatory foods include:


• Healthy fats: olive oil and coconut oil
• Fatty fish: salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines, anchovies
• Nuts: almonds and others
• Fruits: deep-colored berries like grapes and cherries (including high-fat fruits such as avocados and olives)
• Vegetables: broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts
• Spices: turmeric, cinnamon
• Green tea
• Dark chocolate
• Red wine: five ounces per day for women and 10 ounces per day for men

Overweight or obese people have more inflammation. Devote at least 30-45 minutes of aerobic exercise daily or 10-25 minutes of resistance or weight training four to five times weekly.

3. Develop a regular skin regimen.

As part of self-care, the National Health Service advises people with eczema to avoid scratching that can lead to bleeding and risks of infection. Doctors and dermatologists may suggest the application of emollients or moisturizers, corticosteroids, wet wraps or bandages, and antihistamines.

Contact dermatitis

Dr. Hafiji says that avoiding your triggers and changing soaps, when necessary, can help this type of dermatitis to subside.


General practitioners will advise the use of topical creams for a start. GPs and dermatologists can recommend certain preparations and therapies, depending on the severity of your psoriasis.

Hives (urticaria)

Identify your triggers. Acute urticarial can last for a few hours or weeks. Consult a doctor if it goes on for more than six weeks, especially if you experience breathing difficulties, dizziness, or nausea.
