Skin is the outer protective layer of our body. Skin faces every environmental condition and protects the underlying body parts from all unfavourable situations. Skin is the largest body part as it covers the whole body. Skin works as the umbrella for us and it is important to maintain the umbrella in good condition, unless we cannot protect ourselves from rain! Skin diseases are mostly caused by infectious germs and we need to be very hygienic to maintain the good health of skin.
Here we will discuss about some common skin diseases like harpies skin disease, skin pigment disease, eczema, dermatitis, itching, vitiligo and PSORIASIS.

Pimples

Pimples are the most common skin disease that occurs in every person. These are actually the oil glands that get infected with bacteria. They swell up and get filled with pus. Sebaceous or oil glands are present inside the skin and they produce sebum. Sometimes dead skin cells are left behind and they get stuck with the sticky sebum. The pores get blocked and bacteria infect them. Whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts are the main symptoms of pimples.

Acne

Acne Vulgaris is popularly known as acne. It is the skin disease involving oil glands that occur at the base of the hair follicles. As the sebaceous glands become at the time of puberty and start produce enormous amounts of sebum, they often get clogged with dead skin cells and facial hairs. Increase in androgen levels are believed to cause acne. Research says that acne is a genetic disorder.

Razor burn

Razor burn is the skin disorder that is caused as the result of shaving body hairs. It can be few hours of discomfort and burning sensation or may develop into an irritating rash along with infected blisters which can last for several days. Mostly men are affected by this skin problem as they need to shave regularly. Women who shave their underarms on a regular basis may also get affected.

Sunburn

Sunburn is the skin injury that is caused as the skin is exposed to the ultra violet rays of sun. People who are exposed to sun rays for long time develop this skin disease. People having dark skin complexion (actually their skin contains more melanin, a pigment that protects the skin) are less vulnerable to this disorder as compared to fair complexioned people. Red skin with itchy feeling is the primary symptom which can be followed by development of blisters.
