It may be the case that you will find it harder to treat the skin problems you are facing. Stress is now proven in modern medicine also to increase problems like urticaria and autoimmune diseases.

Many of us fail to notice the fact that we react to simple things so badly when we are under stress.  This happens because stress reacts on our body and makes hormones like cortisol, which alters other hormones and ultimately encourages glands of our skin to make excess oil. Oily skin is prone to causing acne on our skin and other problems. Do you know what else stress can do on our skin? We keep so focused on removing excess oil from skin and treating it on the outside that we just forget to look for causes inside ourselves.
