Learn about the most common skin conditions here:

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a noncontagious common condition of the skin that causes rapid skin cell reproduction resulting in red, dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and skin scales are thought to result from the buildup of the rapid production of skin cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees, scalp, and ears.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a very common benign skin disorder that affects many people worldwide. As of 2008, it is estimated to affect at least 14 million people in the United States alone. The main symptoms of this facial condition include red or pink patches, visible broken blood vessels, small red bumps, red cysts, and pink or irritated eyes. Most people with the disease may not even know they have rosacea or that it is a diagnosable and treatable condition. Many patients may just assume they blush easily or have gotten sunburned.

Eczema

The terms eczema or dermatitis are used to describe certain kinds of inflamed skin conditions including allergic contact dermatitis and nummular dermatitis. Eczema can be red, blistering, oozing, scaly, brownish, or thickened skin and usually itches. A special type is called atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema.

Warts

Warts are benign tumors that commonly involve the skin and other epithelial tissues. The etiologic agents for these infections are a class of double- stranded DNA viruses called papillomaviruses. Warts are generally classified by their clinical features and morphology (e.g., common, flat, filiform) or by location (e.g., genital, plantar, respiratory papillomatosis).

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder that results from loss of pigment within skin cells that make pigment (melanocytes). It usually begins with white patches of skin developing. The most common sites are the face, lips, hands, arms, legs, and genital areas, but vitiligo can develop anywhere on the body. It may remain localized or may spread to depigment the whole body. It is more noticeable in darker skinned people. Vitiligo also affects the hair that grows in the affected area and it also turns white. The retina of the eye may be affected and lose pigment.
