Common Skin Conditions and Disorders

Skin conditions come in many forms, all with their own unique treatment recommendations. Most frequently experienced include eczema (atopic dermatitis), psoriasis, folliculitis and, of course, breakouts. These diseases can leave you with a whole laundry list of symptoms, some more troublesome than others and can show up as an itchy condition, pigmentation disorders, extremely dry skin conditions, sores and other less than stunning appearances. Dealing with most skin conditions requires a trip to the dermatologist and, in some cases, advanced skincare. Solar Damage - Far and away the skin's biggest enemy, the sun can have a dramatic impact on all facets of the derma from wrinkles to age spots to problems with the underlying layers that support and nourish. Skin conditions resulting from sun damage often lead to advanced procedures such as laser peels, chemical procedures and photorejuvenation.

Rashes - Rash is a generic term for a large number of conditions. Most infections and bacteria that cause skin problems also cause irritation. These often materialize in the form of skin rashes. Taking into account your circumstances, these can be an indication that chronic skin conditions may have developed. Skin rashes can be the result of contact with plants, allergens, chemicals, pollutants, toxins and climate.
