Skin diseases that can affect your normal life
Dermatosis is a general term for diseases that occur in the skin and skin appendages. The skin is the largest organ of the human body, and there are not only many types of skin diseases, but also various diseases that occur in internal organs that can be manifested on the skin. There could be many reasons for skin diseases; some are caused by infectious factors, such as leprosy, scabies, fungal diseases, skin bacterial infections, which are often contagious to a certain extent. They not only affect physical health but also cause panic and social discrimination. Skin diseases may affect and disturb your normal life.
Fortunately, with the improvement of living standards and the advancement of science and technology, infectious diseases such as leprosy have been significantly controlled around the world. Other internal and external factors that cause skin diseases, such as mechanical, physical, chemical, biological, and endocrine are now very common these days.
Allergic skin diseases
Some skins are very sensitive and are affected by external factors easily. Skincare products and cosmetics are good examples of external factors. So it is essential to consult skin specialists before applying skincare products, beauty products, body lotions, and creams. It goes not only for dry skin but also for those with oily skin.
Some common skin diseases related to sensitive skin
The skin is located in the outermost layer of the human body. When the skin comes into contact with certain substances, the body’s cellular immune response is triggered. Allergic reactions to some commonly exposed substances are:
It usually starts in infancy, both in males and females. In most people, it is developed from infancy to 12 years old. It is not very common in adults. Patients are often accompanied by allergic rhinitis and asthma. Continued scratching can lead to a vicious cycle of itching, scratching, rashes, further itching, and scratching. The cycle can go on for a very long time if timely treatment is not provided to the patient.

Large temperature changes, seasonal changes, or sweating will aggravate itching, so it is essential to apply more moisturizing lotion or Vaseline; again it depends on your skin specialist's advice.
At present, there is no medical evidence of which food will make the condition worse, but infected children should avoid eating eggs, seafood, peanuts, and drinking milk when their condition worsens.
It is also known as hypolipidemic dermatitis or winter eczema and is caused by the cold that constricts blood vessels. It is also associated with reduced function of the sebaceous, sweat glands, and skin aging. Therefore, senile skin or dry skin will lose its normal keratin moisture content in winter. The skin will become rough, inelastic, prone to cracks and flaking causing acute dermatitis and itching. This is the most common skin disease in winter, mainly in middle-aged and elderly women.
Patients often experience itching all over the body, especially the front of the calf or in the back of the lower leg. If you scratch too much, it is easy to produce eczema-like lesions. In addition, taking too many baths, going to hot springs because of fear of cold, bathing in very hot water, or indoors in air-conditioned or heated rooms are also causes of this disease.
Whatever the cause or effect of the skin problem is, it is always recommended to see your dermatologist before you buy any skincare products and cosmetics.
