PIH TEXT Today Bertie and I are going to talk to you about PIH or Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. Oh, Thanks Bertie! And like the spots on this egg, PIH produces dark concentrated areas of pigmentation as a response to skin inflammation. Now Bertie’s egges by its spots naturally, but PIH appears when your immune system overreacts to trauma in the skin. Conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, and even little things like insect bites ow! trigger an inflammatory response that can cause melanin production go bonkers. Since melanin is the brown pigment that gives our skin its color, the result is dark marks and uneven skin tone.
Now normally our skin looks a little more like this. Melanin’s job is to give you an even skin tone and protect you from UV radiation. To that, melanin says, You’reWee America. Turn up the sun exposure and skin turns up tyrosinase, an enzyme that kicks melanin production into high gear. Boyaah! To help you better understand, let’s take a closer look.
When you’re exposed to sun, tyrosinase activates melanocytes, little factories at the base of the epidermis that produce and package melanin granules. These packages travel up towards the keratinocytes, turning you a shade darker and protecting the cells’ nucleus from damage. So even when lounging in the sun, your skin is hard at work! Sometimes the body’s immune system destroys the melanocytes, the cells that make the melanin.
This condition is called vitiligo, and the result is patches of depigmented skin. Although it’s considered a disorder, people like Chantelle Winnie, contestant from America’s Next Top Model, are out to show the world that uneven skin, light or dark can still be beautiful. In skin affected by PIH, inflammation from everyday conditions like acne can cause melanin production to go haywire! The immune system triggers the tyrosinase enzyme and melanin is transferred from melanocyte up to keratinocyte again and again and again. and again, This causes dark clusters of color to appear near the site of infection or injury.
When ites to PIH there are two different types. Epidermal PIH occurs in the upper layers epidermis of skin and appear as welldefined light or dark brown patches. Dermal PIH, on the other hand, occurs in lower layers dermis of skin and appear as hazy bluegrey or purple patches. Dermal PIH happens when inflammation gets soo bad, melanin granules get shoved into the dermis where they don’t belong. Aww Fuddruckers! Now the epidermis constantly renews itself, but the dermis does not, so foreign bodies like melanin get trapped inside and overstay their wee.
In this way, Dermal PIH is similar to a tattoo, and at times, can be just as difficult to remove! Now that you know a bit more about what causes PIH, we are going to look at treatments options and products to help you resolve it. So don’t be a chicken!

How to Make Healing Salve for Dry Skin DIY Ointment Recipe
Hi, I’m Kathrin Brunner, a nutritionist from For the Love of Body today I’ll show you how to make a healing calendula salve We’ll start with beeswax It will melt faster if you grate it. And we’re going to use 2.6ounces or 9 melted tablespoons I’ve already gone ahead and melted that in a double boiler it will take about 20 minutes, you don’t want to rush it. Once it’s melted we’re going to add to that shea butter so we’ll add 1 tablespoon or 4.5 ounces of shea butter to that and then we’re going to use mango butter. so we’ll use.5 announces or 1 tablespoon of mango butter and then we’re going to add these back into a double boiler and let the three melt together So, while that’s melting we’ll get our calendula oil ready. Calendula is a wonderful flower that is very healing for the skin. You’ll need flowers and you loosely packed them into a glass jar and coverpletely with oil you can use either olive or sunflower I prefer sunflower because it’s a little more therapeutic for things like eczema and these will infuse for about four to six weeks. Place them in a warm spot and remember to shake them up every day and at the end four to six weeks you’ll have your healing calendula oil to add to the salve. We’ll open this up strain the flowers out of the oil I like to use a ‘nut milk’ bag but you can use cheesecloth as well.
We’ll pour the oil through nut milk bag and the flowers but getting in there are fine because we’re gonna strain that out give it a good squeeze Getting all of the beneficial oil out of there and then we’re going to measure out five hundred mls to use in our recipe. Now we’ll grab our other oils that are melted. And to them we’ll add our infused calendula oil and then we’ll give that a good stir.
When you at your calendual oil, if if gets a little bit chunky like this, you can add it back into a double boiler briefly, just to allow all the oils to melt and incorporate again this is looking nice and smooth now. We’ll get this out of the double boiler and finish up.
The last thing to go in is some lavender essential oil We’ll add ten drops. Lavender is healing for the skin it will help to repair any skin damage We’ll give that a stir and now we’ll add it to our containers that we’re going to store it in You can use little mason jars or other little glass jars once you’ve put it all in all you can put your lid on and allow it to set You can let it set naturally or put it in the fridge it’ll take about 2 hours and then it will look like this So that’s a beautiful orange, glowing salve highly therapeutic for any type of skin issue eczema, psoriasis scratches, wounds, scrapes, you name it. And I like to using calendula salve in the winter on any dry spots to get glowing, beautiful skin.
DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi ‘6
Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And wee to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it’s your fingers that are itching, it’s not because they’re dry.
Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it’s not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters.
Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps were filled with sweat. That’s why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn’t sweat it’s actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood.
The mostmon cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I’ve only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients.
The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds and I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off.
Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It’s like taking horizontal slices through a sphere starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again.
To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn’t stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch toe back worse a few minutes later.
