Some skin disorders are deadly while others are unpleasant and annoying. You may also suffer those that are barely visible or those that are disfiguring.
Skin Disorders – Psoriasis
Your psoriasis can be caused by a disorder in your immune system or genetics. It’s characterized by thick, raised, red itchy patches of skin, silvery or white scaly patches, pain, cracked skin and bleeding lesions.
Causes include hormones, infections, genes, diet and physiological factors. It’s characterized by pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, pinheads, pustules and possible scarring. It may diminish or disappear over time.
Skin cancer types include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell skin cancer. It may be caused by sunburn and tanning. Symptoms include waxy bumps, firm red nodules, brownish spots, red scaly patches, itching, bleeding lesions and crusty lesions.
Skin Disorders | Warts
These are small, rough growths resembling a cauliflower caused by the HPV virus and most are considered harmless. The contagious skin disease can disappear after a few months or last for years.
Your moles can be brown or black. They occur when skin cells grow in a cluster instead of spreading throughout the skin. They can appear anywhere on your skin. They can change color and become raised as the years pass.
Causes include adverse reaction to certain allergens, sunlight, medications, insect stings or chemicals in foods. Symptoms include raised, often itchy, stinging, burning red bumps or plagues, which can change shape, disappear and reappear in short duration.
Skin Disorders | Rosacea
It’s characterized by facial flushing, pimples, small bumps and pustules that resemble acne. Causes include stress, sun exposure, wind, heavy exercise, alcohol consumption and spicy foods.
Environmental or genetic factors can cause eczema. Eczema conditions cause irritation and inflammation of the skin. Symptoms include itching, rashes, patches of dry and scaly skin, blisters, swelling, oozing and scarring.
Treatments to manage the above conditions are available. Choosing the right treatment for your skin disorders requires a comprehensive understanding of your conditions.
