Skin Irritations

Acne

  • Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.
  • Cause: Acne occurs when excess oil (sebum) production combined with dead skin cells clog pores.

Eczema

  • Symptoms of this skin disease are dryness of the skin, inflammation, persistent itching, and blistering
  • Cause:  the chronic, adult form of eczema usually occurs in persons with a family history of allergies

Perioral Dermatitis

  • Symptoms of this skin disease are pink bumps that appear around the mouth and sometimes around the eyes and reddening of the affected area.
  • Cause:  there is some evidence that fungi and bacteria may be underlying causes of this disease.

Psoriasis

  • Cause:  most likely an abnormality in the functioning of white cells in the blood stream triggering inflammation in the skin:  flare-ups sometimes occur in the winter, as a result of dry skin.
