Skin Disorders Q & A

What are skin disorders?

A variety of skin conditions can affect your life. In some cases, skin disorder symptoms can be an occasional issue. For others, skin disorders can be chronically painful, and even life-threatening.

At Healthpark Medical Center Inc., diagnostic and treatment services are available for a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema

The experienced medical staff also provides effective anti-aging therapies to reverse the signs of age-related issues, like wrinkles and frown lines.

 

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that results from autoimmune dysfunction. The condition causes scaly patches to form on your skin.

These skin patches, which can become painful and itchy, are most common on your:

  • Elbows
  • Scalp
  • Knees
  • Lower back

In some cases, psoriasis patches can cover large areas of your body.

 

What is eczema?

Eczema is a common skin issue that causes inflamed patches of skin. The condition results in chronically itchy, red skin.

An autoimmune disorder can trigger the development of eczema. You can experience persistent symptoms all the time or have flare-ups as the result of:

  • Sweating
  • Irritants
  • Food allergies
  • High stress levels
  • Upper respiratory infections

Eczema is common in both adults and children, especially those who have existing allergies, such as hay fever and asthma.  You may also be at greater risk for developing eczema if you have close family members who have the condition.
