Skin diseases and changes - symptoms and causes

What are skin diseases?


We talk about them when the disease process involves the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue or sebaceous and sweat glands. Skin diseases can manifest as a rash, peeling and redness. They are acute or chronic. The most common skin conditions are dandruff, contact and atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis.    


Skin diseases and their causes


Skin changes can appear as a result of the action of bacteria, viruses and fungi. In many cases, the cause of the disease should also be sought in allergens that irritate the skin and cause an immune response in the form of a rash or redness.


It happens that skin diseases appear as a result of hormonal disorders, strong stress or improper care.  


Symptoms of skin diseases


These include spots, pimples, blisters, papules and cysts. Skin diseases can also be recognized by erythema, which is often accompanied by itching, burning and even soreness.  


In some cases, the lesions also include hair and nails.


Dandruff and its treatment


One of the most popular skin diseases is dandruff. It is a common problem and has a recurring nature. To get rid of it, it is worth using fungicidal, keratolytic and anti- seborrheic preparations .    


You should also implement preventive measures in the form of regular hair washing and proper diet.
