Muscle Aches and Skin Care

muscle aches Muscle Aches and Skin CareIs there such a concept as skin care for muscle aches and pain? Many of us with muscle aches overlook the need for skin care products that will reduce or eliminate muscle pains in addition to caring for our skin. Sometimes our skin is telling us we are injured. Other times, our bodies tell us we are injured. Chiropractors will tell you that everything about you is all connected. When one part of you is injured or needs treatment, it will show on other areas of our body or skin, whether it is obvious or not.

Muscle pain is a symptom of many diseases and disorders. The most common causes are overuse or over-stretching of a muscle or group of muscles. Overuse or overstretching of muscles can come from doing simple household chores or a rigorous fitness regime. Other times, it is an indication that something is wrong with our bodies and we need medical attention.

Some diseases or disorders that are associated with muscle pain are the common cold, HIV, Lyme disease, Meningitis, Pneumonia, Rabies, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Toxic shock syndrome, West Nile virus, and Bronchitis. Obviously, muscle pain could indicate a serious medical condition.

Other than visiting the doctor, one way we can tell where our muscles pains are coming from is to look at our skin. Sometimes our skin will give us hints on what is going on underneath of it. For instance, those with skin conditions like Rosacea or Eczema feel muscle soreness in the surrounding area. This could be from the inflammation, also a symptom of injury.

Once ruling out a serious medical condition, we can treat our muscle pains with some of the finest products available that will not only combat the pain, but also consider our skin and overall well-being.

Ringworm is a concern for those who camp or hike regularly. Ringworm can be found on any part of the body, but for those who regularly enjoy the woods, mountains, and lakes, ringworm is a common problem. Anyone can get ringworm. Just like other skin conditions like athletes foot and the MRSA superbug, ringworm is contagious. Ringworm thrives best on skin that is moist, hot, and hidden from the light. This is the reason why ringworm shows up on campers and hikers who enjoy the woods or mountains. During the summer when it is warm, the woods maintain moisture, but not all areas of the woods are as sunny as the beach. The trees provide shade for most of those areas, so fungi like ringworm thrive there.

This is why we recommend Stiefel Zeasorb AF Lotion/Powder Outdoor and Adventure Skin Care. It is a powerful medicated powder to get rid of ringworm and prevent it from spreading. In addition, this powder is good for those who have had ringworm in the past and are currently planning an outdoor adventure. The powder will prevent ringworm, giving you the security you need to enjoy your outdoor adventure. Tip: Do not share towels or other personal hygiene items. If you are going to the beach or lake, carry your wet items in a wet case or plastic bag until they are washed. Bring your own beach towel and hair comb.
