What are the types of skin diseases?
1,Acne. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and can take many forms:
(1) pustules. Pustules are common red papules that have pus at their tips.
(2) papules. Papules are raised redness caused by infected hair follicles.
(3) nodules. A nodule is a painful mass just below the surface of the skin.
(4) cysts. Cysts are typically large, painful, pus infected and located under the skin.
2, measles: urticaria from the normal layer of the skin from the itch welt. They can be caused by allergic reactions in the body or external factors such as stress, illness, or even tights. Urticaria is treated with antihistamines and prophylactic therapy.
3,Fungal nail infection: A condition in which fungus exists near, under, and around the nails, usually in the feet. The fungal buildup can cause the edges of the nail to crumble, causing white and yellow scaling and peeling on the nail surface. Treatment is usually an antifungal cream or other fungal treatment.
4,Manic skin disease: This is a psychological skin disease that causes a person to suffer an imaginary parasite attack. A skin disease is actually any skin disease caused by an animal parasite. It comes from the Greek words derma (skin), zoon (animal), and nosos (disease).
In her book dermatologist Yael Adler describes the case of a woman who complained to her about extreme itching. The woman tried a variety of different treatments, such as cortisone, antiparasitic drugs and skin creams, but nothing helped. She carried the crumbs and bugs from the little bottle to the bed and body. She was convinced that the itching was caused by these terrible things. However, these “scary things” turned out to be just crumbs made up of skin, cells and dirt particles.
5,Perioral dermatitis: Another, more common name for this skin-related disease is “flight attendant’s disease.” In short, it’s caused by excessive makeup and excessive pore expansion. It’s no secret that flight attendants use lots of makeup and moisturizers to protect their skin from exposure to the dry air on a plane. Another reason may come from the use of creams based corticosteroids.
The disease appears as small, itchy spots filled with fluid instead of sebaceous fat that appear around the mouth (but the space around the lips remains clear), chin, eyelids, or nasolabial folds. This has increased recently, and is even more so because of high-definition television. Modern technology shows every nose hair, pore and wrinkle, so people involved in TV and film production cover their faces with a variety of cosmetics, most of which contain large amounts of silicone oil, which clogs pores and causes spots to appear. As a result, illness among flight attendants has spread to the lives of movie stars and TV presenters.
6,Hyperhidrosis: This is a condition in which a person sweats too much all over or on certain parts of the body. If you sweat too much during the night and wake up in wet pajamas, it’s vital that you see your doctor for a checkup. Some of the causes of this excessive sweating can be due to thyroid problems, diabetes, cancer, inflammatory processes, or infections. When a person sweats excessively all the time, their protective skin barrier is constantly highly moisturized, which creates the perfect breeding ground for bacterial production. Fresh sweat won’t smell. Bacteria get infected with viruses and start smelling bad. The first treatment your doctor recommends when treating hyperhidrosis is an antiperspirant containing aluminum chloride. They shrink the excretory ducts of sweat glands.
7,Trichotillomania: A particular form of hair loss (extreme of hair loss) called trichotillomania is caused by neurotic problems. People with the condition tear their hair until they are completely naked. Sometimes it happens in specific areas, so people might think it’s an inflammatory issue. But if you look closely, you can see that these areas have new short, healthy hair, meaning it’s associated with physical discomfort.
The disease does not cause hair to fall out naturally, but it does cause a person to shed hair. It’s better to consult a psychotherapist than a doctor.
8,Dysphoria: Fear is a powerful emotion, and so is stress. Sometimes the two factors combine and people get stress from their own fears. Their friends and relatives may not even realize the true nature of the fear because they live in the depths of their beloved soul.
A phobia is the fear of your own flaws. Oddly, beautiful people are more vulnerable to this state of mind. Such a person will obsess over any real or imaginary flaw in the body, skin or hair.
Constant stress is dangerous for the human organism because it puts additional stress on the cardiovascular system and mental health, as well as reducing libido. Be sure to help anyone you think is going through this unfortunate situation.
9,Skin disorders: “skin disorders,” which translates from French to “scratched blackheads,” are usually common among young women. Imagine stressful situations like passing an exam or falling in love. These are some of the stressors that can trigger this.
Being under a lot of stress can lead to readjusting the mental stress rather than by attacking others and treating them positively. Instead, the girls with the condition began to attack themselves. They can’t stop touching their faces. Each pore is attacked, and then healing is slow because they don’t have enough time. Girls end up with lots of small scars, scarring and red skin. Each wound left a brown spot.
