Signs of a damaged skin barrier

Signs of a damaged skin barrier
The skin barrier is the outermost layer of the skin that helps to protect it from external damage and prevent moisture loss. When this barrier is compromised, it can result in a variety of issues. 
Here are some signs of a damaged skin barrier on the hands:
Dryness and roughness: One of the most common signs of a damaged skin barrier is dryness and roughness. When the barrier is compromised, it can't retain moisture effectively, leading to dry, scaly, and rough skin.
Redness and inflammation: A damaged skin barrier can also cause redness and inflammation on the hands. This can be due to increased sensitivity to irritants and allergens.
Itching and burning: A damaged skin barrier can also cause itching and burning sensations on the hands. This is because the nerve endings in the skin become more exposed when the barrier is weakened.
Cracks and fissures: When the skin barrier is damaged, it can also lead to cracks and fissures on the hands. These are openings in the skin that can be painful and increase the risk of infection.
Increased sensitivity to products: Another sign of a damaged skin barrier is increased sensitivity to products. This can include hand soaps, detergents, and other chemicals that come into contact with the skin.
