Conditions affecting the skin, nails, locks, & mucous membranes are all included in the broad category of “dermatological problems.” Many things, including heredity, the environment, infections, immunological reactions, hormone shifts, and even personal decision, might contribute to these problems. Here are a few common skin issues:

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is a chronic inflammatory skin illness characterized by itchy, red, & inflamed areas that tend to affect people who have a history of allergies, either from themselves or their families.
Psoriasis is a skin condition characterized by the fast accumulation of skin cells, which causes flaky, thick, reddish areas and pain.
Typically affecting the cheeks, the nose, and forehead, rosacea is a chronic skin illness characterized by face redness, noticeable blood vessels, and, in rare cases, acne.
Hives (Urticaria) are red, raised, irritating welts that may arise for no apparent reason.
Redness, itching, and blistering are all symptoms of dermatitis, which is disease of the skin caused by irritants, contaminants, or even stress.
