Your skin is your largest organ, and it protects you from the external elements by acting as a barrier between you and the outside world. Certain conditions can clog, inflame, or irritate your skin and cause symptoms, such as swelling, redness, itching, burning, and rashes.
Skin conditions can come from a variety of factors, including:
There are many types of skin diseases and skin complications.
Acne is a disease that affects the oil glands in your skin. Your pores are small holes in your skin that connect to oil glands underneath your skin. When the follicle that connects the glands to the pores clogs up, acne occurs.
Eczema is referred to as atopic dermatitis — a skin disease involving itchy, dry skin and rashes on the face, elbows, knees, hands, and feet. Researchers believe eczema is hereditary.
Hives cases are characterized by red and sometimes itchy bumps that can be an allergic reaction to a food or a drug. Hives can be induced by stress or infections and can often go away on their own.
Impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria that are more common in younger children. It usually starts when bacteria enter the skin through a cut, scratch, or insect bite. Impetigo symptoms are red sores surrounded by red skin.
Moles are growths on the skin that happen when melanocytes grow clustered together surrounded by tissue.
Wrinkles are a cosmetic concern for some people. Wrinkles range from fine lines that are barely noticeable to deeper creases that are caused by aging, genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors.
