How COVID-19 Impacted Additive Manufacturing Market in Pharmaceutical Industry ?


The outbreak of Coronavirus has caused many industries to change the way they operate, and manufacturing industry is no exception. Also, the rise in demand of antiviral drugs was observed along with decrease in demand of drugs for other ailments.
The European Fine Chemical Group estimated that 80% and upward of chemicals used in the making pharmaceuticals sold in the Europe region originate from China and India. Everyday millions of patients rely on drugs manufactured and supplied by pharmaceutical industries; shortage of any particular medicine may create chaos. Manufacturers served throughout the pandemic and are still operating to prevent such turmoil.

IMPACT ON DEMAND

The Coronavirus led to the widespread closure of local manufacturing plants and companies and has badly affected the various region of world. Due to extensive lockdown and isolation the economic activity has affected adversely which has impacted the global economic activity.
Manufacturers began to diversify sourcing of raw materials along with investment in spreading production in different regional markets instead of concentrated markets such as India and China. Likely to be long term effect is reindustrialization of pharmaceutical production in countries such as the United States and Europe in order to minimize dependency on imported products, this would lead to rise in demand of additives in above mentioned countries.
Moreover the increasing cases of COVID-19 have also paved the way for enhanced demand of additives but due to movement restrictions same decrease in sales was recorded.
For instance,
· In January 2021, BASF SE had no indication of any major effect on the global activities and supply chain of our BASF Nutrition & Health sector comprising of BASF Pharma Solutions, BASF Animal Nutrition, BASF Human Nutrition, BASF Enzymes and BASF Fragrance Ingredients owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
· In 2020, DuPont de Nemours, Inc. recorded decrease in earning of excipients sales, which belonged to Nutrition and Biosciences segment.
This thus signifies that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses a life threatening effect to various types of patients already suffering from several kinds of disease among the most recent known COVID-19 pandemic. Thus the demand of effective treatment option that is antiviral drug has enhanced the supply for short term. This thus demonstrates that COVID-19 is accelerating the demand of additive market.

PRICE IMPACT

Throughout year 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic caused economic turmoil globally, the pharmaceutical industry in particular had to adapt quickly to minimize the impact on its operations and supply chain of drugs worldwide. Raw materials and additives rates have increased due to reduced supplies and delayed manufacturing plans, and shut downs in some countries.
The price of additives and raw materials has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic due to numerous air travel restrictions and inefficiency to supply products.
For instance,
· The shortage has begun to affect API and bulk prices in trades, the average increase in India was reported to be about 10-15%, and is estimated to reach 50% in some cases.
· WACKER Chemie AG a Germany based company is about to raise its prices for dispersions and solid resins in Europe, Africa and Middle East region stating that this measure has been necessitated by rise in price of raw materials cost in market.
· The Edelweiss Securities predicted that COVID-19 pandemic would cause severe supply disruptions in pharma sectors causing earing cuts by 15%. But globally pharma companies are performing well, in short term most companies are expected to bounce back in five years.
This thus signifies that due to COVID-19 pandemic the price of additives used in pharmaceutical productions have increased due to Coronavirus outspread.

IMPACT ON SUPPLY

As COVID-19 spreading began in China the surge of medicines has been enhanced due to increasing patient’s volume which put a pressure over the supply of pharmaceutical additives. Moreover the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the business environment for more organizations across the globe. Around the world many companies are hugely reliant on supplies and production in China.
However the market players are adopting several initiatives in order to maintain a continuous supply of additives.
For instance,
· As per the news of September, 2020 this has been suggested that Sandoz is working closely with the Association for Accessible Medicines in order to enhance the global pharmaceutical supply chain.
· In 2020, Ashland which is an essential supplier, their supply chain continued to operate safely receive, process and ship specialty products during COVID-19.
· As per November 2020 Merck KGaA a company specialized in additives and chemicals stated that it continued to leverage their business continuity plans including risk mitigation activities, accelerated investments and adjusted production schedules for few high demand products.
· According to the news of March 2020, Roquette Frères stated that they are working in order to minimize the COVID-19 impact on its supply chain.
· As per February 2020, FDA closely monitored supply chain with the possibility of potential disruptions in supply of critical medical products in the U.S. Manufacturers alerted FDA about recently added drugs in drugs shortage list.
· DFE Pharma claims that their continued production and supply during the pandemic was not affected in Netherlands, India, Germany and New Zealand. Apparently due to COVID-19 effects on global transport industry the shipping companies are charging more than usual.
This suggests that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses threat for maintaining a continuous supply chain of additives while initiative adopted by market players allows them to manage a continuous supply chain.

STRATEGIC DECISIONS OF MANUFACTURERS

Additive manufacturing companies are taking so many strategic decisions in order to cope up with the current scenario of COVID-19 pandemic. The companies engaged in manufacturing of additive manufacturers are collaborating so as to accelerate the market growth. Companies have already taken several kinds of strategic initiatives in order to cope up with the Coronavirus situation.
Strategic initiatives by market players such as Dow, Ashland, Kerry, BASF SE among others in the market will help them to expand their network and supply chain. This in turn will lead to increasing product sales and hence will enhance the overall company’s revenue.
For instance,
· In May 2020, Dow during the COVID-19 pandemic was working closely with government officials and medical professionals, using guidance to adjust plans as warranted.
· In April 2020, the U.K.’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) published guidelines on Exceptional GMP flexibilities which allow manufacturers to increase their production capability to minimize risk of product shortage using quality risk management principles and to navigate through international travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19.
· In April 2020, Lubrizol enabled 1 Billion bottles of hand sanitizer globally every month to increase its Carbopol polymer production, which is used as a thickener.
The increasing demand and sales of antiviral drugs are fuelling the growth of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market.
Thus, companies operating in the additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market are adopting several strategies, including agreements, market expansion to enhance their business. These strategic decisions by the market players helped them to attain a lucrative growth even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CONCLUSION

As the pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders but still manufacturers of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical are able to manage their stocks. The demand and supply of pharmaceutical products increased rapidly due to given medical emergency.
Drug shortage caused due to the pandemic is expected to remain limited this way for a short period, also if the pandemic exceeds the shortage of pharmaceutical APIs, chemicals and additives may persist on causing shortage of supply in long run. This would also effect complications in distribution especially due to population movement restrictions across the globe.
Various manufacturers are continuously engaging in constantly monitoring the supply chain so as to attain a lucrative growth. The activities and certain changes from COVID-19 would reduce dependency of private pharmaceuticals on alone suppliers such as China.

How Impacted COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry INTRODUCTION Shale gas and shale oil are defined as natural gas & oil from shale formations. Shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is made up of very small clay particles and is highly porous in nature. It is formed in deep ocean water, lagoons, wetlands, and swamps where the water is still enough for extremely fine clay and silt particles to settle to the bottom. Since shale is a porous formation, it serves as both a source and a reservoir for unconventional hydrocarbons. The extraction of oil and gas from a shale formation involves mechanical stimulation. One such technique for stimulation is hydraulic fracturing or fracking. In the fracking process, cracks in and below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting water, chemicals, and sand at high pressure. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking has made it possible to access vast quantities of shale gas that were previously uneconomical to generate. Natural gas output from shale deposits has given the United States natural gas industry a new lease on life. The demand for safe access to energy sources is growing globally. Shale oil and gas have played an important role in meeting global energy demand during the energy revolution and are expected to continue to do so for decades as society transitions to lower-carbon energy sources. The rapid growth of shale oil and gas contributes to increased supply stability and lower commodity prices. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), in the year 2011, the country’s estimated available natural gas resources totaled 2,552 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Natural gas from shale deposits, which was once considered to be uneconomical, accounted for 827 Tcf of this resource total. In the year 2020, U.S. dry shale gas production was about 26 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), and equal to about 78% of total U.S. dry natural gas production. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON U.S. SHALE INDUSTRY Shale oil and gas exploration have, in particular, given the US oil and gas industry new dimensions of development. It has also fueled significant investment in associated infrastructure for gathering, storing, and delivering hydrocarbons to both domestic and foreign markets. In less than a decade, the US shale industry turned the global energy landscape upside down and re-established the US as the global energy leader. The onset of a global pandemic and subsequent drop in oil prices, on the other hand, has taken the momentum out of the shale boom. Due to a sudden drop in demand, the shale industry has immediately self-corrected. Many oil and gas players succumbed to the economic shock resulted from the CoVID-19 and filed for bankruptcy. Chesapeake Energy, a shale leader and once second-largest gas producer in the United States, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in late June. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the crude-oil output from seven major shale formations in the United states fell by around 56,000 barrels per day (BPD) in August 2020 to just under 7.5 million BPD, which would be the lowest level in two years. The shale industry is closely looped in with the oil and gas industry. The recent downfall of the oil and gas industry during the pandemic has had a severe impact on shale output. Post pandemic, the shale industry peaked, but the industry as a whole lost money. Since 2010, the US shale industry has produced USD 300 billion in net negative free cash flows, damaged more than USD 450 billion in invested capital, and seen more than 190 bankruptcies. With the advent of the coronavirus, the future for shale producers has become even bleaker, with a new bankruptcy filing occurring every week or so in the last few months. The pandemic's effects will be felt far beyond the US shale industry. Despite accounting for less than 10% of global oil and gas output, US shale oil extraction activity accounts for 40% of global shale oil extraction activity and accounts for nearly 100% of the growth in US midstream and export-oriented refining and petrochemical sectors over the last decade. STRATEGIC INITIATIVES DURING COVID-19 · Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) agreed on a continuation of March production levels for the month of April, with the exception of Russia and Kazakhstan, which will be authorized to increase production by 130,000 and 20,000 barrels per day, respectively, at their most recent meeting · Saudi Arabia has also agreed to extend its one-million-barrel-per-day voluntary cut for the month of April. · Companies such as Chevron, Shell, Schlumberger, and others have taken initiatives to safeguard their workforce in the ongoing pandemic situation. CONCLUSION On Conclusion, the pandemic has placed the shale industry in a delicate spot as major players are forced to cut down the output. The potential energy landscape in the United States and around the world is highly complex, and its drivers are interconnected. In the not-too-distant future, a wave of consolidation in the US shale industry could be triggered by the poor financial position of many firms and the weak economic outlook. The continuous demand for a ban on fracking, coupled with the effect of COVID, has cracked the shale industry severely. Although, the historic evidence indicates that the shale producers operate more economically. In comparison to 2019, producers in the Permian Basin are saving roughly 20% on good costs.

Why And How To Use A Niacinamide Serum
Niacinamide may not get as much attention as retinol and vitamin C, but it is a skincare powerhouse that deserves equal recognition. It is the definition of a multitasker, offering a host of distinct benefits that make it a good choice for a wide range of skin types and complexion issues. However, incorporating it into your current skincare routine might sound difficult. Is it OK to use niacinamide along with vitamin C and/or retinol? Is hyaluronic acid a viable alternative? We weigh in on everything you need to know about using niacinamide. What is niacinamide, exactly? Simply put, it's a B vitamin, one of two forms of vitamin B3, and it participates in a number of critical cellular operations in the skin. What benefits does it have for the skin? Buckle your seatbelts, because this is going to be a long list. Niacinamide is a fantastic treatment for acne-prone skin. Niacinamide reduces sebum production, which can help prevent acne and shine. The vitamin is also known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, which aid in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions such as eczema. Niacinamide helps to build the skin barrier, which is advantageous to people who have eczema or sensitive skin. It is also an efficient skin lightening agent, treating hyperpigmentation by blocking pigment transfer from pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes to skin cells on the surface where discoloration is visible. As if that wasn't enough, there's evidence that niacinamide can help to reduce wrinkling and photoaging by maintaining cell function and repairing DNA damage. To summarise, niacinamide has very few limitations. Is it OK to mix niacinamde and retinol? Yes! In fact, retinol and niacinamide are recommended together for faster effects. The soothing characteristics of niacinamide can also assist to alleviate the unpleasant side effects and irritation that usually accompany retinol's wrinkle-fighting effectiveness. Is it safe to combine with other ingredients? Yes, as a general rule, which is why it's found in many skincare products and is easy to incorporate into your present routine. Niacinamide is frequently coupled with salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid typically found in acne products, due to its acne-fighting qualities. Combining niacinimadie's oil-removal properties with salicylic acid's ability to break down excess oil is an effective way to keep pores free and breakouts at bay. Niacinamide is an ideal choice for combining with alpha-hydroxy acids, which are chemical exfoliants that can cause skin irritation, due to its anti-inflammatory and skin barrier-strengthening effects. Because the AHAs exfoliate the dead skin cells that would otherwise make it impossible for the niacinamide to enter, combining them boosts the efficacy of the niacinamide. Finally, because niacinamide and hyaluronic acid can both help with dry skin, they are frequently mixed. What is the one thing that the jury is still out on? Vitamin C. Because vitamin C might inactivate niacinamide, the applications should be separated by 15 minutes. In truth, the two would have to be heated in order to interact negatively, and more and more cosmetics are combining the two in skin-brightening formulations. The bottom conclusion is that if you utilise a product that contains both vitamin C and niacinamide, it was most likely specifically designed to work together. If you're using two different products that include these chemicals, wait 15 minutes between applications or use one in the morning and the other in the evening. Should I use niacinamide?

Significant COVID-19 Impact on Hand Tools in the Semiconductors & Electronics Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Hand Tools in the Semiconductors and Electronics Industry COVID-19 made a major impact on the hand tools market as almost every country has opted for the shutdown for every production facility except the ones dealing in producing the essential goods. To prevent the spread of coronavirus disease, the government has taken some strict actions such as the shutdown of production and sale of non-essential goods, blocked international trade, and many more. The only business which is dealing in this pandemic situation is the essential services that are allowed to open and run the processes. The companies such as pharmaceuticals and chemicals, among others, are allowed to continue operation but with certain safety rules. A hand tool is any tool that is not a power tool – that is, one powered by hand (manual labour) rather than by electricity or fuel. Some examples of hand tools are garden forks, secateurs, rakes, hammers, spanners, pliers, screwdrivers, chisels, and others. Hand tools are generally less dangerous than power tools. The global hand tools market size is estimated to be USD 8.4 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 10.3 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.0%. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing commercial as well as residential construction and infrastructure projects, adoption of hand tools in households for residential/DIY purposes as well as growing manufacturing setups and increasing repair and maintenance operations across the world. However, factors such as an increase in safety risks and concerns due to improper use of hand tools are restraining the market growth. The shutdown of production facilities during the pandemic situation has had a significant impact on the market. The future of the hand tools market looks promising, with opportunities in increasing commercial as well as residential construction and infrastructure projects. The global hand tools market is expected to decline in 2020 due to the global economic recession caused by COVID-19. However, the market will witness recovery in the year 2021. The major drivers for this market are the increasing commercial as well as residential construction and infrastructure products. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the hand tools industry, include the introduction of more efficient power tools and the increase in hand tool automation to reduce physical work that might boost hand tool usage. IMPACT ON PRICE Although the COVID-19 pandemic continues to transform the growth and prices of various industry-related products, the price of the products with respect to the hand tools market maintain a steady line throughout the pandemic. This denotes that there are no major changes in the price of the hand tools due to the effect of the pandemic. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN Supply chains are complex systems where the risks and costs associated with mismanagement and communication failures in globally connected organizational networks are relatively high. For instance, · In May 2019, Stanley Black & Decker announced the opening of a new plant for the production of its brand CRAFTSMAN in Fort Worth, Texas. The new facility has an area of 425,000-square-foot and is expected to employ approximately 500 full-time employees Some of the most influential factors that affect the supply chain in regards to the hand tools manufacturing companies are companies seeking strategies to protect their position in the value chain, looking for new markets, finding new possibilities to leverage skills and offering more value to customers. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE TO BOOST THE MARKET Government efforts to encourage the adoption of hand tools in household alternatives have developed at a rapid pace in recent years. Governments in the European Union, China, Japan, Canada, India, and South Korea are among the major geographies where governments are taking aggressive measures to increase the adoption of hand tools in residential/DIY purposes as well as growing manufacturing setups and increasing repair and maintenance operations. For instance, · There have been some major policy developments in the European Union. Improvements in hand tool requirements and the digitalization of hand tool based industries, which focuses on government procurement of increased usage of hand tool based systems which form a greater initiative · Another guideline, the 'Performance Buildings Directive,' has been established, which establishes minimum requirements for hand tool infrastructure installation in buildings Such favourable initiatives are anticipated to boost the adoption of hand tools in commercial and residential based projects and thus drive the adoption of the repair and maintenance operations market during the forecast period of 2021 to 2028. STRATEGIC DECISIONS OF MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE Revenue growth for the hand tools market has experienced a decline in 2020 due to constricted economic activity expected as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. So, the hand tools manufacturing companies have adopted various strategies to overcome the decline in revenue. Some of the most common strategies adopted by industries are as follows, · The reduction of experimentation costs due to the speeding up of the testing phase · The reduction of the number of costly physical prototypes and redesign linked to their fast obsolescence · The improvement of design quality via the availability of information very early on in the development process CONCLUSION Pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of life, including the global economy. With the significant downfalls in many sectors, a collaborative effort of government, industry players, and consumers could win the fight against COVID-19. Also, COVID-19 has likely influenced the development of the hand tools market because of the closing down of processing plants, impediment in-store network, and decline in the world economy. With COVID-19 affecting countries at different times and rates, access to global demand through open markets, the pandemic situation created by COVID-19 has a major impact on the hand tools market as it has lowered its demand owing to the shutdown of most of the manufacturers all across the globe. Along with industrial disruptions, the commercial, construction, and infrastructure projects across the world were either cancelled or put on hold owing to the lockdown impositions. On the other hand, as the homeowners spent most of their time at homes during the pandemic, there was a noticeable shift in focus towards home improvements, interiors and home decoration activities at the residential/DIY level, which in turn called for a slight demand for hand tools. Thus, the hand tools and woodworking tools market is getting affected by COVID-19. This has resulted in a lower estimated year-on-year growth rate as compared with 2019. On the other hand, improvisation of technologies has led to gain strong industrial growth. However, the growth has been high after the market has opened after COVID-19, and it is expected that there would be considerable growth in the sector owing to high technology and interfaces that are expected to drive the overall demand of the market.

The Truth About Hormonal Acne And How To Control It
Indian women's hormonal environments have changed dramatically as a result of increased stress and poor lifestyle choices. When it comes to polycystic ovaries, the condition is a hereditary one that can be passed down from mother to daughter. A hormonal imbalance known as PCOS or PCOD has become more common among women and young girls as obesity has become more common. Despite the fact that PCOD is a gynaecological condition marked by irregular menstruation, it is most commonly diagnosed when patients visit a dermatologist for persistent acne, hirsutism, or hair loss. So, as a dermatologist, when do I suspect PCOS or hormonal acne? Suspicion usually arises during a consultation when one or more of the following factors are present: * Inflammatory acne exacerbated by premenstrual hormones. * Acne predominantly on the lower half of their face, the jawline, and upper neck. * Hair loss and/or hirsutism are also present. * Intense acne brought on by menstrual irregularities or PCOS. Acne that does not respond to conventional acne treatments like topicals, antibiotics, or chemical peels is likely hormonal acne if none of the above factors can be ruled out. Is it possible for a dermatologist to tell whether or not acne is caused by hormones? It's a little complicated here. It is suggested that you undergo a series of blood tests. A clear hormonal imbalance may be discovered, or the results may be within normal ranges. While normal test results don't exclude PCOD as a possibility, the ratios of different investigations are taken into account when making this determination. The clinical diagnosis may be correct even if laboratory tests are negative! When do you have your hormonal tests? The use of anti-androgen medications is usually not recommended during the first consultation if the clinical diagnosis of hormonal acne is clear. Conventional acne treatment is started and response is tracked. Investigations may not be required if the response is adequate. After 6-8 weeks of treatment, if the patient does not improve, hormonal testing may be recommended. Is it necessary to treat hormonal acne and PCOS acne with hormones in all cases? No, that's not always the case. Patients who need a quick response and are open to hormonal treatment begin taking the medication at the beginning of their acne treatment. Patients who don't want to take hormones are prescribed antibiotics/retinoids, including topical and oral forms, as well as chemical peels. To effectively control mild to moderate hormonal acne, I typically use advanced chemical peels such as Agera, Obagi Blue peel Radiance, and Azelan. The patient is encouraged to start taking medication if his or her response does not improve after 3-4 sessions. Patients who do not see improvement after 6-8 sessions are re-explained that oral anti-androgen medication is needed to control acne. Acne is a completely curable dermatology lifestyle disorder. Non-hormonal acne takes 1-2 months to treat, while hormonal acne takes 3-6 months. Hormonal acne requires a more stringent maintenance plan as well. This may comprise of customised skin care as well as ocassional chemical peels. You should find yourself a dependable dermatologist and start a long-term relationship.

What Causes Strawberry Legs And How To Get Rid Of It?
Summer is arrived, which means you're most likely showing a little more skin. As our gams finally receive their due, pants become shorts, maxi dresses become minis, and skirts become minis. Short hemlines, on the other hand, may be undesirable to those whose legs are spotted, bumpy, or spotty. Let's learn more about how a dermatologist treats and prevents skin diseases known as "strawberry legs." What Are 'Strawberry Legs,' Exactly? Strawberry legs refers to a dotty appearance of the legs, mainly around the hair follicles. The dots depict the buildup of common skin elements in and around the hair and oil glands. Keratin is a type of protein that is found in (the main protein in the skin) * Melanin is a pigment found in the skin (the source of pigment) * Sebum is a type of oil that is produced by (natural oil of the skin) * Bacteria are microorganisms (often, normal skin flora) The name "strawberry legs" refers to the dark pores and dots or red pimples that emerge on the lower thighs and resemble strawberry seeds. Strawberry legs are not hazardous in terms of health, but they are ugly. Strawberry Legs: What Causes Them and How to Treat Them While the appearance of strawberry legs is typically the same no matter what caused it, there are a number of causes. Knowing what's causing your dotted gams can allow you to address the appropriate ailment. The four most prevalent causes of strawberry legs, as well as how to cure them, are listed below. 1. Clogged Pores Clogged pores on your legs are just as common as clogged pores on your face. Because of heredity and thicker body hair, some people have larger pores, and while the pores themselves aren't inherently irritating, they can become problematic when they become blocked with germs, dead skin, and sebum. When clogged pores on the legs are exposed to air, the debris dries up and darkens, in the same way that a blackhead on the face does. Treat with: Chemical and physical exfoliation. Exfoliation, which is part of your facial skincare routine, can be used to cure congested pores on the legs or anyplace else on the body. My personal favourite for my patients is chemical exfoliation, which uses chemicals such as acids and retinols to stimulate skin cell turnover and clear pores. This eliminates keratin, oils, and other skin detritus gently, opening up pores and follicles and preventing secondary bacterial buildup. Acne and folliculitis bacteria grow in oil-clogged hair follicles, so eliminating that build-up is critical. Look for a body wash or moisturiser that contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), notably glycolic acid and salicylic acid, to exfoliate dead skin cells and other debris that create clogged pores. These acids gently exfoliate the skin by minimising the'stickiness' of dead or dying skin cells. This helps to open up the pores while also giving the skin a great textural shift and radiance. 2. Folliculitis Folliculitis is a skin disorder that causes inflamed or infected hair follicles. The most common sign is little red pimples around the hair follicles. Hair loss or scarring in the affected area may occur in extreme situations. The majority of instances, however, are small and normally resolve within a few days. It's crucial to note that folliculitis is a catch-all term for inflammation of the hair follicle. This can be contagious due to microorganisms like staphylococcus or sterile due to oil buildup or shaving stress. Treat with: Antibiotics, both oral and topical. Folliculitis is a "tricky condition" to treat, which is why you should consult a dermatologist before trying any at-home therapies. Folliculitis can be sterile, with red, pus-filled pimples forming as a result of causes like clogged pores and shaving. They can, however, indicate a superficial skin infection caused by bacteria or yeast such as staph and pityrosporum. While the former can be treated with over-the-counter medications, the latter may require prescriptions for antibiotic creams or even pills to resolve. A simple swab can be used by a dermatologist to assess whether or not organisms should be targeted. If there are, it might save you a lot of time and effort in developing successful at-home habits. Treat with: Antibacterial skincare. At-home treatments range from lifestyle changes to skincare. To begin, change out of your sweaty training clothes and shower as quickly as possible. In the shower, lather up with antibacterial soap. Treat with: Laser hair removal treatment. You should also reconsider your shaving routine. Use a soothing shave cream in addition to converting from a multi-bladed razor to a disposable razor. In return for less rough skin, the closest shave is compromised. The risk of folliculitis is inversely associated to a close shave. He also suggests shaving with the grain rather than against it every two to three shaves. If you're prone to razor bumps, laser hair removal with a dermatologist will save you a lot of time and aggravation in the long run. 3. Keratosis Pilaris Keratosis pilaris (KP), popularly known as "chicken skin," is a skin disorder characterised by the appearance of small bumps on the skin. Keratosis pilaris most usually affects the upper outer arms, however it can also affect the thighs. Keratin accumulation in the hair follicles causes this. Treat with: Chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliants, like clogged pores, are frequently efficient in the treatment of keratosis pilaris, but prescription-strength treatments may also be beneficial. Exfoliative acids are my first line of defence against keratosis pilaris. If those don't work, a prescription-grade retinoid may be an option, but only after consulting with a dermatologist. While keratosis pilaris is usually a year-round condition, flare-ups are more likely in the winter when the skin is drier. Additionally, swimmers may aggravate the illness due to the dehydrating effects of chlorine and other pool chemicals. 4. Dry Skin Dry skin, as previously indicated, contributes to a number of skin diseases, including strawberry legs. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to irritation, especially during shaving. Dry skin on the lower legs is more prone to razor burn, keratosis pilaris, folliculitis, and plugged pores, all of which can result in a spotty appearance. Treat with: Creams and moisturisers. For severely dry skin, a daily moisturising body lotion containing ammonium lactate is an excellent place to start, especially if it is scaly. Ichthyosis, or dry, scaly, or thickened skin, may not usually respond to regular creams and moisturisers, thus a dual-purpose formulation may be necessary. Because there is a thicker layer of dead skin on the surface, moisturising alone isn't always adequate. Exfoliating lotions gradually remove that layer, allowing richer moisturisers to penetrate deeper into the healthier layers beneath. In conclusion Strawberry legs are a catch-all name for a range of skin disorders, but there are a few things you can do at home and at the workplace to cure and prevent a bumpy or spotty appearance. Consult a board-certified dermatologist before attempting to treat yourself to ensure you understand the underlying cause of your illness.
