The adrenal glands also have an interesting correlation to skin conditions. They are responsible for regulating stress in the body and, like the gut, they also have control over the immune system. When you are under stress, your adrenals send out high amounts of the hormone called cortisol, which puts the immune system into overdrive. Again, this hyped up immune system will be hyperactive and begin overreacting to everything with which it comes into contact. Combine that with an inflamed internal environment, and it is a recipe for disaster for the skin.
Understand that using topical medication to control any of these conditions is only masking the symptom and not fixing it. Plus, if you are on any type of steroid, you are also causing a lot of damage to practically every system in your body. To resolve your skin issues for good, you need to identify the source of the inflammation and resolve it, as well as any other imbalances in the body. Healing the skin needs to start from within.
