Itching is the worst physical symptom that people can suffer with. In studies comparing quality of life of those with itchy dry skin and other chronic diseases, such as heart disease, the itchy skin conditions score the worst of all.
Itchy dry skin conditions, such as eczema, are very common. Sufferers often wait years to see a clinician, who truly understands how these symptoms affect their daily life, relationships and work.
The doctors at Freyja Medical have years of experience in dealing with common itchy skin conditions. They are conversant with all the topical treatments available and make it their absolute priority to find you the combination which works for you.
Training in dermatology for General Practitioners in the UK is sadly inadequate. Unless you are lucky enough to have a GP in your practice with special interest in skin disorders, and perhaps has undertaken further training, you may not find the help you or your family long for.
Book to see us for expert diagnosis and advice on treatment. We may be able to work with your GP to arrange topical treatments prescribed to you on the NHS. Occasionally, it may be more appropriate for you to see a Consultant Dermatologist at a local hospital and we will advise you if this is the case.
