Skin weakened by treatments or pathologies
Aside from specific skin diseases, the skin can suffer from the toxic effects of certain illnesses and treatments (e.g. diabetes, dialysis, treatments for cancer, etc.).
Common skin toxicities include: hair loss, extreme skin dryness, irritation, problems with skin repair, hand-foot syndrome, etc. Patients often have to change their care routines to protect their skin and to maintain their quality of life.
