Derma Soothe

Dealing with irritating skin disorders

Skin disorders are so common globally that one in three people are affected by at least one skin disorder within their life. The most common symptom associated with skin disorders is pruritus, which causes a severe itching sensation. The conventional way to relieve an itch is to scratch the irritated areas using nails; however sufferers are advised against scratching by doctors. Currently there is no medical device which helps to soothe an irritation and apply treatment. The Derma Soothe is created to help. It works by soothing sudden irritations on the skin by using the scratcher; if the irritation persists a topical treatment can be dispensed and massaged in to the skin using the applicator pad ensuring the irritated urge is calmed. This procedure will dramatically reduce the side effects caused by excessive scratching and provide a hygienic procedure to help deal with irritating skin disorders.
