No "if" or "why" as these horrible-looking skin diseases may have occurred in your life! Earlier treatment is always recommended to treat them while the attack is still mild.
Like others, we all dream of having a beautiful skin and body, an ideal body shape and of being tip-top health. However, these horrible-looking skin diseases have made our dreams not come true. They’re always viewed as miserable “aliens”. Though they’re not a life-threatening problem but their existence can be both embarrassing and nuisance. Skin itching, skin inflammation, undesirable and strange “spots”, breaking out in rashes, skin changes in texture or color, may be early signs of precancerous or cancerous skin conditions, or may be the result of infection due to the direct contact with an irritant or an allergen, and may also be a manifestation of certain chronic skin conditions. The most important approach to deal with these skin conditions is to treat them when the attack is still mild. Now, let’s look on some of these horrible-looking skin conditions.
Seborrheic keratosises are non-cancerous growths which appear as sharply demarcated and slightly raised skin lesions. These benign growths may develop with age. Most of them have a grainy or a verrucous surface that are usually easy to crumble, but some of them may have a waxy and smooth surface. They may be black, multi-colored, or brownish in appearance. They are seen around the chest or back. As they seldom cause problem, and thus no treatment is recommended. Unless irritation develops or their existence is concerned for moles or skin cancers, then a proper diagnosis by a dermatologist is deemed necessary and appropriate.
Psoriasis is a non-contagious rash which is characterized by dry red patches, silvery scales or thick red plaques covered with silvery scales on the scalp, elbows, knees, arms, legs, face, lower back and around the belly-button. Psoriasis can appear in a variety of forms. Of all types of Psoriasis, Plaque psoriasis or Psoriasis Vulgarise is the most common type. When Psoriasis occurs on the scalp (which can creep onto the forehead or the skin beyond the hairline), or more commonly as part of a widespread condition, it is always accompanied by involvement in the gluteal fold of the buttocks which may go and come. People who suffer from a rare type of psoriasis may feel uncomfortable, usually have a fever and a high white blood cell count, and may occasionally die from this situation. Some patches are very itchy and may last for months to years. In severe cases, the treatment can be difficult. Psoriasis is always treated with medications, light therapy, retinoid creams or steroid.
