4 Our skin: a world of its own Important multi-layered areas At 1.5 2 m², the skin is the largest human organ. However, it is not just a simple protective layer, but a multi-layered, complex structure with numerous important components and functions. An ecosystem of its own On every square centimeter of our skin, around three million skin bacteria cavort most densely in the area of ​​the sweat and sebum glands. The skin contains blood vessels, hair and their roots, as well as sweat and sebum glands. Finger and toenails and the hair on the scalp are also part of the skin. our skin 4

5 Slightly acidic, easily injured, highly flammable! The skin has a ph value of 5.7. Chemically, it's slightly acidic and that's a good thing. Why? This protective acid mantle prevents germs and pathogens from penetrating deeper skin layers. The skin ecosystem is sensitive and can be damaged quickly: Wrong and excessive care and trendy body cults often disrupt the natural acid protection and dry out the skin. External influences and germs have an easier time. 5

6 What do sebum and sweat glands actually do? The various layers of skin and the protective acid mantle are important components in the sophisticated skin system. But there are also useful weak points, such as Sebum and sweat glands make sense because they are extremely functional, weak points because pathogens can also penetrate through them. Epidermis (upper skin) Basal membrane Corium (leather skin) Blood vessels Sweat glands form the body's own cooling system! Sweat is an unwanted companion in everyday life. But sweat glands are extremely important in maintaining a healthy body temperature. The evaporation cold of the sweat on the skin protects the organism from overheating. our skin 6

7 sebum glands keep the skin elastic! Apart from the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet, sebum glands are distributed almost throughout the skin. They ensure that the skin does not dry out and remains elastic. The sebum glands produce 1 2 g of sebum daily and push it over the hair to the surface of the skin. The older we get, the less sebum production becomes, and that makes the skin drier and therefore more vulnerable! Hair shaft Hair follicle (hair follicle) Hair muscle Hair root Hair bulb Hair papilla 7

8 bacteria: harmless or dangerous? Depends on! Harmless skin bacteria: on the skin! Most of the tiny bacterial inhabitants of the skin are completely harmless. But there are also bacteria that can be dangerous under certain circumstances. These include the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. If this bacterium is given the opportunity to spread, it can cause purulent skin inflammation. Dangerous skin bacteria: in the skin! Bacteria are also called germs, and germs don't sleep! Even harmless inhabitants of the skin surface, germs can become unpleasant under certain circumstances. Even the smallest injuries to the skin allow bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus to penetrate deeper areas of the skin and cause purulent inflammation there. Bacteria 8

9 injury? I didn't notice anything. The tiny injuries themselves often go unnoticed, for example when shaving, so the pathogens can lodge undisturbed and trigger the inflammatory process. Only reddened pimples or sore skin are evidence of a previous injury. Smallest skin injuries by ... shaving body hair removal methods small cuts splinters / flakes abrasions skin cracks manicure pedicure too short cut fingernails / toenails ... open the door to germs! 9

10 Trend: Body Shaving Are you following the trend and shaving your body? Do you also know the danger zones for skin irritation after shaving? Because: Thorough care can also destroy thoroughly. Hygiene is important, but please take the right amount! Too frequent showering and bathing can destroy the protective acid mantle of the skin, i.e. our outer protective shield against germs. Body shaves are in vogue, but: A shave can not only impair the protective acid mantle, but also cause small injuries to be an invitation for pathogens that cause purulent skin symptoms. Typically women, female skin danger zones: armpits, legs, genital area Typically men, male skin danger zones: beard area, back, chest, buttocks, intimate area, body shave 10

11 Risky Hair Removal: Multiple Methods, One Risk! There are many hair removal options. But they are the same in one point: No method is without the risk of skin irritation or purulent skin inflammation! Wet shaving: the most widespread and practical method High potential for irritation to the skin from cuts! Waxing, Arabic halawa, epilation: painful depilation methods in which the hair is gripped and torn out along with the roots. All three methods pose a high risk of hair follicle inflammation because germs can penetrate the hair shaft. Depilatory cream: Hair removal using chemical depilatory creams Very risky because of their pronounced irritant potential. After each hair removal, the skin can become irritated. Pimples or purulent inflammation can result. It doesn't have to go that far: ilon Abscess Ointment can effectively prevent the spread of such skin symptoms through its disinfecting and anti-inflammatory effect if it is applied thinly directly after hair removal! 11

12 Risks for purulent skin inflammation Weak defense, strong germs A weak immune system favors the development of purulent skin processes. Physical or emotional stress, a diet low in vitamins, too little sleep or a generally unhealthy lifestyle with too much nicotine and alcohol are bad prerequisites for a healthy defense. Chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus also permanently weaken the body's defenses. purulent skin inflammation 12

13 Sweating: opens the pore and germs the gates! Heavy sweating, such as during exercise, expands the pores. This makes it easier for germs to penetrate deeper into the skin and trigger inflammation there. Do not sit out skin irritation! Do you have a sedentary job? This can also lead to purulent skin inflammation. Why? When you sit and wear abrasive clothing, slightly irritated, reddened areas of skin develop in the genital area, on the thighs or on the buttocks. Untreated, this can easily lead to inflammation of the hair follicles or skin abscesses. 13th

14 When the skin world is no longer whole ... pus? Yuck! The word pus causes disgust in most people. But probably everyone has already made the acquaintance of pus. Be it in childhood, when you are often injured, be it through the physical changes during puberty or, of course, as an adult in everyday life. For example, when after shaving, purulent pimples appear on various parts of the body almost overnight, where smooth skin was wanted. What is pus anyway? Pus is ... a natural reaction of the body to a disturbing stimulus from bacteria a liquid that is formed by the body as a defense reaction to inflammation. composed of white blood cells, tissue residues, bacteria and blood components. Treat contagious pus properly 14

15 Where there is pus, drain it there. Ubi pus, ibi evacua Doctors say it in Latin, we say it in German: pus must be removed! Why? Because pus causes pain from pressure and can become the starting point of dangerous blood poisoning! Accumulations of pus must completely disappear from the focus of inflammation so that there is no renewed infection with pus formation! All purulent inflammations associated with pus are traditionally referred to as abscesses. Depending on the appearance, the purulent inflammation, the abscess, has other names: Purulent pimples: Inflammatory, rounded or pointed, pus-filled, small elevations of the skin Boils: Encapsulated pus accumulation Hair folliculitis: Pustules / nodules on the skin around the hair Carbuncle: Several inflammations of the hair follicles next to each other, which can also flow together. Inflammation of the sweat glands: inflammation of the glands after invasion of bacteria. Therefore, pimples and other purulent inflammations should be taken seriously. If it is discovered too late, taking antibiotics can usually be helpful, and a minor surgical procedure may be necessary. In any case, a pharmacist or doctor should be consulted in good time. Therefore: Be vigilant yourself earlier in order to be able to treat gently yourself. 15th
