Common Skin Diseases and Conditions

ACNE : Acne is a common skin condition characterised by the blockage of hair follicles beneath the skin due to the accumulation of oil, dead skin cells, or bacteria. This inflammatory disorder involves the sebaceous glands, connected to hair follicles, leading to the formation of pimples and whiteheads. While its primary impact is on the face, it can also affect the chest and shoulders.

Psoriasis : Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder marked by persistent inflammation and abnormal cell growth. Characteristic features include erythematous plaques covered with silvery scales, most commonly found on extensor surfaces, the scalp, and the lumbosacral area. It is classified into type 1 (occurring before 40 years) and type 2 (manifesting after 40 years) based on age of onset. While the cause remains unknown, psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease involving T-lymphocytes.

Warts : These are harmless, rough bumps that form on the skin, arising from the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) at the site of skin breaks or cuts. This condition is contagious and can spread directly through contact, whether person to person or person to object. Children are particularly susceptible to this infection due to the frequent occurrence of skin breaks in their active lifestyles.

Atopic Dermatitis : Atopic dermatitis (AD), a form of eczema, stands as the most widespread chronic inflammatory skin condition. It arises from a combination of environmental and genetic factors, resulting in abnormalities in both the epidermis and the immune system. Marked by itchy, inflamed, and dry skin, this condition can affect individuals of any age but is particularly prevalent among children. 

Eczema : A collection of conditions that induce inflammation, irritation, and frequently itchy skin, including atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis.

Dermatitis encompasses various skin inflammations or irritations, typically presenting as a rash or itchy, dry skin. This condition can result from various factors and may lead to issues such as blistering, oozing, crusting, or flaking. The three most common forms of this ailment are atopic (eczema), seborrheic, and contact dermatitis.

Vitiligo : Vitiligo is a prevalent skin disorder marked by the loss of skin colour in patches, resulting from the absence of melanocytes in the epidermis. The precise cause remains unknown, although some researchers suggest it may stem from an autoimmune disorder. In this scenario, the body’s immune system targets the cells responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, leading to their dysfunction.
