The causes of skin hypersensitivity

Skin hypersensitivity can be caused by several different factors. It is important to understand the causes of this condition in order to better prevent and treat it.

Genetic factors

Some individuals may be predisposed to skin hypersensitivity due to their heredity. This means that the condition can be passed from generation to generation in a family.

Environmental factors

Climate, environment and skin products can all irritate the skin and cause hypersensitivity.

Extreme weather conditions, such as cold or wind, can damage the skin's protective barrier, which can lead to irritation. Likewise, frequent use of harsh skin products can also cause hypersensitivity.

Underlying medical conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, can also lead to skin hypersensitivity.

Additionally, stress, fatigue, poor nutrition and poor hygiene can also increase the risk of skin hypersensitivity.
