Treatment for Hyperkeratosis
Hyperkeratosis is a skin condition that involves the thickening of the outermost layer of the skin, which contains a protective protein called keratin. Hyperkeratosis is often associated with an abnormal quantity of keratin.
There are different types of hyperkeratosis and an exact diagnosis should be made by a dermatologist. In addition, we recommend exploring possible causes and aggravating factors with a doctor specializing in integrative medicine. In many cases, chronic physical or chemical damage can lead to the development of hyperkeratosis. Excessive friction of the skin, and the use of aggressive soaps, chemical peelings, or laser treatments are some of the possible causes or aggravating factors.
