Some people may have a sensitive skin .
This may be inherited or may be due to some extraneous factors like usage of wrong creams or acquired sensitivity to uv light. Sensitive skin is quite troublesome to patients.
Some may need be able to use any cosmetics or creams on their face. An important reason for sensitive skin is use of steroid creams . This thins out the skin and makes the skin break out into
acne and also reacts quickly with sunlight.
Hence such patients need to use a sunscreen all their life. Some treatments like
microdermabrasion may thicken the skin and may help to reduce the sensitivity.
