COMMON SKIN CONDITIONS

One of the most common skin conditions in the U.S. affecting the oil glands of the skin. It has
a range of causes that lead to many different kinds of pimples. It usually affect teenagers and
young adults but can develop at any age.

Inflammation of the skin. It typically leads to swelling with an itchy rash. Dermatitis takes
different forms, including contact dermatitis, seborrhic dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis. Each
affects the skin differently.

A common skin condition that often appears as a red, scaly, itchy rash and can occur on many
different parts of the body.

Causes redness on the face, similar to blushing. Small, pus-filled bumps often appear, and can
also lead to visible blood vessels and swollen eyelids. It can spread from the nose and cheeks
to the forehead, chin, ears, chest, and back.

This is a chronic, autoimmune skin disorder that speeds up the growth of skin cells. This rapid
growth results in thick, red skin and silvery scales.

This viral infection affects the nerve ending in the skin and causes a painful rash. Although the
condition clears after a few weeks without treatment, intervention is highly recommended to
speed up recovery and prevent long-lasting pain, numbness, and itching after the disease has
gone. Shingles can also potentially damage the eyes and ears. These symptoms constitute an
emergency appointment.

Benign skin growths that are caused when a virus infects the top layer of skin. You are more
likely to get one of these viruses if you cut or damage your skin in some way. Warts are
contagious and can be spread by contact with the wart or something that touched the wart.

Growths on the skin that are usually brown or black. They can appear anywhere on the skin,
alone or in groups. Most moles appear in early childhood and during the first 25 years of a
person’s life. It is normal to have between 10-40 moles by adulthood.

A common skin disease also caused by a virus. It appears as small, pink or flesh-colored
bumps on the skin. The bumps have a dimple in the center that may or may not be filled with a
thick, white substance. Even though it is painless, some of the bumps may be itchy.
Scratching or picking can spread the virus.

Common, benign skin growths that can occur anywhere on the skin. They most often form on
the chest, back, scalp, face, and neck. While anyone can develop an SK, they are typically
associated with old age. These growths first appear in middle age or later.

The most common type of hair loss is hereditary hair loss. There is no cure for hereditary hair
loss, but there are medical treatments that may help some people like Minoxidil and
Finasteride.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes smooth, round patches of hair loss. It
may lead to total loss of scalp hair and can sometimes affect body hair as well. This can affect
people of any age including children.
Telogen Effiuvium is can be brought on by illness, stress, or other events can cause too many
hairs to enter the resting state of the hair growth cycle. This leads to excessive shedding and
thinning of hair. Typically, bald patches do not appear.

Raised, itchy red welts that can appear on any part of the skin. Hives vary in size and can be
as small as a pen tip or as large as a dinner plate.

This is a common condition that can occur at all ages. It can cause rough, scaly, or flaking
skin, itching and even cracks in the skin, which may bleed if severe. Extremely dry skin can be
a warning sign of a skin problem called dermatitis. The earlier dermatitis is diagnosed and
treated the better. Without treatment dermatitis can often get worse.

A common skin condition that can affect both fingernails and toenails. It is an easy infection to
contract and is easily spread. If you have a fungal infection on one of your nails, it can spread
to one or more of your nails.

A raised, bumpy, or ring shaped lesion. It is most common in children and young adults. It can
occur singly or in groups on the skin. It typically begins as a round, firm smooth bump and
then becomes a circular ring with a clear center. Lesions typically form on the hands and feet,
elbows, and knees.

A condition that causes the skin to lose its pigmentation or color. Some people only develop a
few spots that may lighten or turn completely white. Others might experience a widespread
loss of color. While it can affect all parts of the skin, it typically begins on the hands, forearms,
feet and face.

A fungal infection of the skin. Typically it results in a red, itchy, scaly, circular rash. It is highly
contagious.
