SKIN IN DISEASE
Whenever there is disease in the body the skin is affected in some ways. As it is an important elimination organ this is only to be expected, but the fact is often overlooked, especially in relation to effective treatment. More attention should be paid to the skin in this respect because it can be used as a useful diagnostic aid and also as an indication of the progress that is being made in the body’s return to health.
Apart from the actual local changes that may take place when there is a particular skin complaint, such as, for example, psoriasis, the unhealthy skin shows definite changes in its general texture. It may be too dry or too moist, and it will most certainly lack the normal elasticity. When it is picked up under the fingers and thumb it will feel lifeless and lack that responsiveness so characteristic of the healthy skin. There are many people whose skin may be in this condition, and although they may not suffer from any so far diagnosed disease, their general health will be very poor. If the skin were used to estimate the general condition it would be possible to institute effective treatment much earlier than is usually the case.
In some cases the sebaceous glands are either inactive or too active. In the latter case, the skin takes on an oily condition which is far from pleasant and which spoils the appearance of the skin. The same is true of the sweat glands, and here the perspiration may be offensive, especially in certain parts of the body. The feet may often be affected in this way, and too many people think that such a condition can be rectified by the application of some deodorant. This is not so, because the excessive perspiration and its offensiveness are related to some inward disturbance of the system. The nerve endings in the skin may be irritated by the localized condition and set up itching of varying degree. Here again, one should not think that the suppression of the irritation is the proper way out of the difficulty. Whilst local relief may be given, the cause of the irritation must be found and removed if the case is to be satisfactorily handled. So many of these local troubles are the outcome of some disorder within the system that it is usually very dangerous to use suppressive treatment and thus merely put off the day of reckoning.
When the skin is sallow, and showing other forms of discoloration, there is no point in trying to hide the condition by the use of various cosmetic aids, because it is only the outward and visible sign of a toxic system. Nature is trying to store in the least dangerous places the effete matter the disease is developing within the body. The person who suffers from chronic dyspepsia often shows it in the colour of the skin, which is sallow and dry, and the sufferer from sluggishness of the bowels is never without signs of it within the various tissues of the skin.
