Your skin is the mirror of your inner health. Different types of skin problems depict various underlying ailments which, if not treated on time could lead to serious health problems. Skin disorders can also be extremely stressful and may lead to depression. Timely treatment is therefore necessary.
This is a very wide-ranging category and contains information about different types of conditions affecting the skin. Some are common such as eczema, acne and allergic rashes (urticaria) and others are rarer such as scleroderma. Infections are covered such as chickenpox, fungal nail infections and boils/abscesses as well as skin cancers and their prevention.
Acne is a common skin disease that can occur on many areas of the body and can develop at any age. Face acne is very common, but chest acne and back acne, as well as acne on the scalp, neck, shoulders, and upper arms is also ordinary. The good news is that with proper acne treatment and a good skin care regimen, it can be prevented and controlled.
Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.
