Do you experience stubborn chapped lips during the cold winter months? You’re not alone! For many, lip balm doesn’t always do the trick, but it’s not the only solution!

Dermatologists have other solutions up their sleeves that you can try this winter to heal your dry, flaky and/or bleeding lips:

▪️ Humidify your environments such as your bedroom or office regularly.

▪️ Don’t lick your lips! This can dry them out even more.

▪️ If you use lip balm, try a formula that is greasy, scent-free and with very few ingredients (e.g., Petroleum Jelly)

▪️ Moisten lips with a damp cloth soaked in lukewarm water for about 10 to 20 seconds, applying a thick greasy lip balm immediately after to lock in the moisture.

If your chapped lips continue, and appear red, itchy or swollen, visit your dermatologist who can help find a solution that works for you.

Brittle hair – be gone! This winter, if you have dry, crispy, and straw-like hair, treat it with care by following these dermatologist approved tips for healthy hair.

▪️ Avoid heavy-duty styling – go heat free for at least a few days a week. On the days you heat style, wait until your hair is 70% dry before styling.

▪️ Put a mask on it – While using a conditioner with every wash can help tame flyways and frizz, an additional hair mask once a week will help to protect the cuticle and amp up the silkiness.

▪️ Push it an extra day – Skip washing your hair by a day or two! Washing too frequently can strip hair of its natural oils.

▪️ Line with satin or silk – Wool, cotton and other course fabrics used for winter hats and headbands can rub against your strands and cause major breakage. Find a hat or headband that is lined with silk or satin as it’ll help tame the frizz and breakage.

Winter’s almost officially here, meaning festive celebrations, cozy nights in and... dry skin that can be tedious to take care of!

Prevent your skin from feeling tight, itchy, and flakey by following these easy tips this winter:

▪️ Avoid antibacterial soaps and cleansers.
▪️ Avoid fragrance, both synthetic or organic, in skincare and laundry care.
▪️ Keep showers between 5 and 10 minutes.
▪️ Wash with warm water instead of hot.
▪️ Blot or pat your skin dry after washing - Do not rub.
▪️ Apply a fragrance-free moisturizer immediately after washing.
▪️ Apply sunscreen when going outdoors as the UV rays can still cause damage to the skin in the winter.
▪️ Use ointments, creams and oils rather than lotions.
▪️ Avoid cold weather and wind when possible.
▪️ Wear gloves to protect your hands.

Eczema can be tricky to treat, often requiring a treatment plan from a dermatologist who can assess your condition and recommend the best course of treatment. Most types of eczema require a combination of treatments and medications. The three main steps of eczema management involve bathing and moisturizing to repair the skin, medications to reduce inflammation, and avoiding triggers that cause flare-ups.

In many cases, prescription medication to help treat eczema may be required. Some prescription medications include:
▪️ Antibiotics
▪️ Corticosteroids
▪️ Topical Calcineurin Inhibitors
▪️ Phototherapy

This , celebrate with us the many achievements of Canadian dermatologists that have left a mark within the specialty in Canada, and for some, even across the world.

1935: Mary Eliza Scofield becomes the first woman to practice dermatology in Canada, laying the foundation for future Canadian female dermatologists.
.
.
1963: Dr. William Pace revolutionizes the treatment of acne with benzoyl peroxide, which is now used globally on a wide scale in both nonprescription and prescription medications.
.
.
1987: Drs. Jean and Alastair Carruthers discover the cosmetic properties of botulinum toxin, also known as “Botox”, which is now a common treatment used for a wide variety of skin related concerns.
.
.
These milestones only scratch the surface in Canadian dermatology history, and we look forward to more milestones to be achieved in the future.

11/16/2022

Depending on the job, individuals can develop contact dermatitis while at work. Among all occupational dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis accounts for approx. 80% and allergic contact dermatitis 30%.

If you are experiencing eczema-like symptoms such as red, itchy and inflamed skin, and question if it’s occupational eczema, ask yourself these questions:

▪️ Did your skin problem start when you changed jobs?
▪️ Does your skin problem improve when you are away from your job?
▪️ Do you think that any specific substance at work is causing your skin problem?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, consult your dermatologist.

Is there a dermatologist that does NOT due cosmetic procedures in South Western Ontario? My doctor referred me back in July to a dermatologist in Windsor, and I have yet to get a phone call to arrange an appointment. My doctor says if i was doing lip injections or some other cosmetic procedure i would have an appointment within a week. I have been suffering with a rash (fungal) on my hands that has severely impacted my life, and I can't get a doctor to look at it. My own doctor has tried everything he knows and therefore he referred when all else fails. Why can i not see a doctor. I have suffered for over a year now!! If anyone knows a doctor between Windsor and London who does not do cosmetic procedures and actually takes OHIP patients i would be thrilled to hear about them!!
