Hello:

Dermatological problems can have many causes. Therefore, it is essential to perform a comprehensive diagnostic protocol, starting with simple and low-cost diagnostic tests that will allow to rule out the most common causes. Later on, it may be necessary to resort to more complex and specific tests to rule out allergies, autoimmune diseases, hormonal pathologies, etc.

You can give him capsules of omega 3 and 6 with zinc to strengthen the skin.

All the best,
