HARAAM, NAJIS, POISONOUS HAND SANITIZERS
Dr Ishaan Ramkisson, specialist dermatologist, weighed in on the possible side effects of sanitisers on the skin.
“Frequent washing of hands with alcohol-based hand sanitisers can strip away the skin’s natural, protective oils on the top layer of the skin, leading to a compromise of the skin barrier. This can lead to repeated irritation eventually causing an irritant contact dermatitis,” he said.
