Skin Conditions

We are not all made the same, and that goes for our skin as well. There are many skin condition, where the dermal tissue may become red, irritated, scaly, itchy, blistered, and could develop sores, not all have treatments and some are more uncomfortable than others. If you experience any of the following condition, remember talk with your Physician and be honest, he or she is there to help you as well.

Psoriasis

The cause of this common ailment is unknown, over 5 million people suffer from psoriasis in the United States alone, studies have shown emotional or physical stress may spark a flare up. Plaque psoriasis affects the Knees, elbows, lower back or scalp with raised red crusty or flaky patches. Guttate psoriasis is defined by smaller scaly spots all over the body, while pustular psoriasis are sores which cover the entire body.

Unfortunately there is no cure for this condition, most patients skin improves in the sun, Doctors may prescribe you topical steroids, salicylic aid, anthralin or vitamin D or A derivative preparations, with treatment you can expect great improvement. In severe cases, the sores are painful, open and are prone to infections so hospitalization may be required, this is very rare and displayed during a pustular psoriasis flare up.

Cold Sores

The herpes virus lies in the nerve of the skin, it is activated when the body immunity is under attack. Stress is a big factor, sunlight, post rejuvenating or chemical peels, sickness and fever, visit to the dentist chair can also trigger them if you are allergic to latex gloves, they can be passed on if a person has an open sore on the mouth and drinks out of a cup and another picks it up and drinks after him or her.
