Weakened skin: at risk of chronic dermatitis and severe inflammation
When the skin on the hands and lips is also constantly under strain, exposed to aggression and thus weakened, the consequences can be serious. The hands may develop dermatitis, or eczema. As for the lips, fissures can become chronic and as a result allergies, angular stomatitis or cheilitis develop.
