The Healthy Skin Show
Summary: Fed up with those skin rashes that just won't go away? Join clinical nutritionist, skin rash expert, and eczema warrior Jennifer Fugo to explore alternative ways to look at your frustrating skin conditions.

We pull back the curtain to dish on nutrition, diet, root causes, detoxification, lifestyle changes and even innovative published research that doesn't seem to trickle down to your doctor.
Have you been told to try an elimination diet to help your skin rashes? Or maybe you’ve been told to try some sort of diet that’s specific to your skin condition.

Have you ever wished that a doctor would spend more time asking you questions? Or maybe you’ve found the exact opposite — you tend to end up basically word vomiting all over your practitioner without letting them get a word in edgewise? It’s normal to want to share lots of information and yes… generally more IS better. But doing it in a more systematic fashion can be easier for your practitioner to put your skin rash and health clues together.
Perioral dermatitis is an incredibly frustrating skin condition because it is so difficult to treat. My guest today has some tips for reducing perioral dermatitis flares.
The truth is that chronic skin rashes issues like eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, rosacea, lichen sclerosus, etc. are complicated.

It’s not uncommon to feel really overwhelmed with what you should do with skin rashes that make you crazy.

But at a certain point, you may find yourself questioning if there’s something more than the conventional route.
Skin conditions in children can be very tricky to treat. Kids are different to adults and what works on an adult may not work on a child. My guest is here to help all you caregivers with questions about eczema in children.

Before you assume that you’ve got something called adrenal fatigue, take a listen to today’s podcast where I explain why it’s likely NOT your adrenals.

When you feel like you’ve tried EVERYTHING to stop skin rashes, it can be so frustrating that you want to throw in the towel. The idea of having hope that you can somehow solve this puzzle get dim. And before you know it, you don’t want to hear anything that could possibly help your eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dandruff, etc. I hope you enjoy this episode. It’s different than the rest, but something I wanted to address because there can be dark places that skin rashes can take you emotionally.
