Sago Palm Malathion Treatment For Skin Problems

The skin problems are many. They include:

1) Acne – acne is caused by excess sebum production which causes oiliness and pimples.

Sebum produced from sebaceous glands produces oily secretion (oil). The skin cells produce oil when they are exposed to sunlight or other factors that cause excessive growth of bacteria. When these factors are absent, the skin becomes dry and itchy.

2) Eczema – eczema is caused by abnormal immune response against normal skin flora.

The body’s own defense mechanism tries to fight off foreign invaders, but it doesn’t always succeed. Overgrowth of yeast overgrowth and bacterial infection leads to inflammation and redness.

3) Psoriasis – psoriasis is caused by an imbalance between the white blood cells and the natural oils in the skin.

The body’s own defenses try to protect itself from external aggressors, but it doesn’t always work well. Overgrowth of fungus and bacteria lead to inflammation and redness.

4) Scabies – scabies is caused by mites that feed on human hair follicles.

The mites lay eggs and when hatched, the new generation also feed on the dead skin cells. The eggs and dead skin cells build up to form a scale that causes itching. The human body’s immune system tries to fight off the mites, but is unsuccessful most of the time.

You can use malathion to treat the above-mentioned skin problems. Malathion has low odor and is odorless, non-irritating, and non-staining. It is available in liquid form and is mixed with water and sprayed on the area to be treated. Malathion stays on the surface of skin and kills the insects and their eggs.

It also prevents insect from coming in contact with the person to be infested. Malathion is recommended when treating scabies.
