Dealing with a skin disorder can be stressful, and can leave you feeling a little less than confident. Many of the disorders that people suffer from are easily treatable, though there are a few out there are more complex to tackle.

The reason behind each skin disease is different; sometimes the primary cause can be hereditary rather than an outside trigger. There are some diseases that not only affect the skin but also take a toll on your overall health.

Knowing what sort of treatments is available however can help to solve some problems, even if it’s not a quick solution. Let’s take a look at some common ones that people deal with and what someone can do to maintain the issue.

Rosacea causes the skin to redden, show pimples and blood vessels in the center of the face. Primarily, this skin disorder affects only the face and scalp, causing skin near the nose to become thick and some pimples-even ones with pus- to appear.

Though the cause is unknown, some studies have found that it may be due to certain foods that are in your diet. Spicy foods, alcohol, and coffee are just a few examples of food that are recommended not to be eaten, as blood vessel visibility becomes even greater and skin becomes more agitated.

The best treatment for rosacea is often topical antibiotic creams, or if pustules are present, then the antibiotic must be taken by mouth. In extreme cases, surgery or dermabrasion can help to alleviate rosacea and start healing the skin.

Shingles

A less than pleasant skin disorder, shingles is caused by the return of the chicken pox infection in affected cells from the spine or brain. When the body first experiences the disease, there is pain felt which can cause panic as it seems as if that person has a heart attack.

Afterward, a red blister rash appears that typically form in a band in places like around the midsection. Shingles cause people to feel weak and dizzy, as well as a mild fever.

It can be cured with pain medication on top of antiviral medication that is normally administered by a vaccine.

Hives

Though this skin disorder has nothing to do with bees, the red splotches that appear on the skin resemble that of honeycombs but aren’t sweet at all. Hives or Urticaria is one of the more common skin rashes out there. It is typically triggered by things like food, stress, pollen or medicine, though there are other factors that can set it off.

In rare cases, hives become associated with deeper welts that form under the skin and can cause swelling. When it becomes that severe, only an immediate visit to the doctor’s will help. Otherwise, hives can be attended to right in your home.

Hives are highly treatable by first determining what you’re allergic to, which a dermatologist can decipher. Then medicines like corticosteroids or antihistamines can be used to reduce swelling and remove redness.

Psoriasis

This skin disorder is noticeable by the red, scaly patches that appear on the skin. Psoriasis tends to show up around the elbows, knees, and scalp but can be found in other areas of the body as well.

Psoriasis is also linked to health conditions like heart disease and immune complications. Genetics play a large role in the reason why psoriasis appears, though doctors have reported that other external forces like stress or medication may affect the problem to flare up as well.

Psoriasis is unfortunately not curable but can be treated with topical creams, light therapy, and other medication to stop skin cells from growing so rapidly and also to remove scales that result in the overproduction of cells.

While there are quite a few skin disorders out there, many are still being researched to try and better understand what causes them in the first place. The good news is that most diseases can be treated and does not require specialized medical care.
