A walk througha drug store or an hour in front of the television should suffice to convinceanyone of the importance healthy skin holds in terms of self-image andsociety’s idea of beauty. Perfect skin is, for most people, a distant dream.

Acne is, formost individuals, a temporary condition that fades in severity with age. Withother skin conditions, the symptoms are neither so common nor so benign. Dozensof different skin disorders exist, with huge variation in symptoms andseverity. Skin disorders can be temporary or permanent, treatable or incurable,situational or genetic, painless or agonizing, minor inconveniences orlife-threatening diagnoses.

There is somedisagreement among dermatologists about the prevalence of different skinconditions. In addition to the conditions below, nearly all individuals developwrinkles and age spots as they get older. The following are some of the mostcommon skin conditions

Signs andSymptoms:

Temporary SkinConditions

In addition toacne, many other temporary skin conditions affect millions of Americans eachyear. Contact dermatitis, for instance, is one of the most common occupationalillnesses, resulting in over $1 billion in treatment costs and lostproductivity annually (CDC). Often caused by contact with chemicals or otherirritating materials, contact dermatitis is typically treatable with topicalcreams and avoidance of the irritant. Depending on whether the condition is theresult of contact with an irritant or an allergy, treatment and preventionstrategies will differ.

 

Other temporaryskin conditions include disorders as common as keratosis pilaris (small andrough bumps on the arms and thighs) and as rare as acute neutrophilicdermatosis (painful lesions on the arms, face, and neck accompanied by fever).Although they have significantly different manifestations, they—like many skindisorders—can both cause embarrassment and significant treatment expenditures.

Permanent SkinConditions

Most permanentskin conditions result from a genetic trait that predisposes an individual tothe development of the disorder. Some are present from birth, while othersappear suddenly later in life. Still others only manifest themselves after anillness weakens the individual’s immune system.

Examples ofchronic skin conditions include rosacea, psoriasis, and vitiligo. Although somepermanent skin disorders have effective treatments that enable extended periodsof remission, others are incurable and always active.

Skin Disordersin Children

 

Children canget many of the same skin problems as adults. Infants and toddlers are also atrisk for diaper-related skin problems. Because of their exposure to otherchildren and to germs, kids may also experience skin problems not commonly hadby adults. Although many childhood skin problems disappear with age, childrencan also inherit skin disorders that are genetic and permanent.

Treatment

Common treatment methods for treatable skin conditionsinclude antihistamines, steroid cream and pills, antibiotics, vitamin orsteroid injections, laser therapy, and targeted prescription medications. Notall skin disorders respond to treatment.

Permanent skin conditions often go through phases or cyclesof severe symptoms. Certain incurable conditions can be forced into remission,but most reappear during times of stress, illness, or overexertion. Painfulskin disorders can be partially addressed with pain medication. Skin conditionsthat involve open sores, lesions, or contagions may also be treated withmedical ointments and bandages or wraps.

Skin disorders that are temporary and merely cosmetic innature can often be treated with medicated make-up, over-the-counter skin careproducts, hygiene techniques, and small lifestyle changes. In addition, someskin conditions can be treated or improved with changes in diet.
