About Skin Disease - Types and Cures

Skin diseases are one of the most common and hard-to-live-with diseases. The skin is one of the most essential organs of the body; if it is affected by a disease then it can have bumps, redness and irritating itchiness that cannot be hidden or treated easily. If you suspect that you have some kind of skin disease, it will do you good to know how to cure it and regain its normal condition. Here is a list of some of the most common types of skin diseases and cures.

miliariaMiliaria or prickly heat is a form of rash that is caused by heat and humidity especially during summer. When perspiration stays longer in the dermis, it causes the sweat ducts to clog. When perspiration tries to break through the clogged sweat glands, it causes itchy red bumps on the epidermis. To cure miliaria, all you have to do is to make your body cool down and avoid hot locations. Frequent baths, wearing light and loose clothing and using an electric fan and/or air conditioner all contribute to reducing miliaria. Others also find that using a bath brush with soap during baths also helps greatly in reducing these rashes. If you have severe miliaria, you can use an anti-rash lotion that is prescribed by your doctor.

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is another form of rash that is itchy and always reoccurring. Babies and children often have these and could wear off during adulthood but there are also some cases of eczema occurring on the hands. Eczema is a hereditary condition, so there is no permanent cure for it. But you can reduce the effects by using cortisone ointment on the affected areas. Avoiding harsh soaps, detergents and clothing also helps to stop these from reoccurring. soap

Actinic or solar keratosis is a precancerous disease caused by over exposure to the sun. The infected skin will look rough, flaky and reddish. Light cases can easily be cured by applying natural gels with glycoalkaloid compounds on the affected area. Severe cases that can turn into cancer can be removed by freezing them with liquid nitrogen or through surgery removal. Often, new solar keratosis can reappear on the cured parts so regular checkups after six months is a must.

pillsTinea corporis or ring worm is an infective fungal infection. These are lesions that are often clear at the center and rough and scaly at the border. You can easily be infected through pets with fungal infections or through other people. The best cure for this is to use antifungal creams or oral pills. You must continue taking the prescribed medication after the lesions are cleared for another week because there could still be fungi in the dermis that cannot be seen with the naked eye. It is also important to treat your infected pets, never share clothes with other people and clean your clothes thoroughly with soap and warm water.

These are the common skin diseases that you should be aware of. Remember that the cheapest, best and easiest way to avoid these diseases is to prevent these by taking good care of your skin.
