SKIN DISORDERS

Conditions that irritate, clog, or inflame your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause dermatitis, hives, and other skin conditions.

Contact Dermatitis - Contact dermatitis is the term used for a rash or irritation of the skin that occurs when allergens touch your skin.

Eczema - The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. Symptoms include dryness and recurring skin rashes that are characterized symptoms such as redness, swelling, itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, and cracking.

Pruritus – Pruritus, the medical term for “itchy skin”, can be caused by any number of medical conditions from allergic reaction to systemic disease. Pruritus is not a disorder, but an indication of another problem.

Urticaria - Urticaria is the medical term for “hives”, “welts”, or “wheals”. Characterized by a red, raised, itchy skin rash, it is sometimes triggered by an allergic reaction. When symptoms last less than six weeks, it is called acute urticaria. If symptoms of urticaria continue for more than six weeks it is called chronic urticaria.

Angioedema – Angioedema is similar to urticaria, but occurs deeper inside the skin. The swelling causes a burning sensation and typically occurs on the face and neck, fingers, toes, and in the genitals of males and females.
