Skin Problem Appearance Causes
Eczema

Also known as dermatitis, eczema is a medical condition that causes inflammation of the skin, generally resulting in itchiness as well as dry and red skin.

Eczema can give rise to different symptoms and signs, ranging from oozing blisters to thick crusty skin patches.

Eczema can be hereditary, or be triggered by environmental factors such as the weather, bacteria or irritants.





Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes skin cells to quickly pile up on the surface of the skin before the skin cells have a chance to mature.

This often results in patches of red inflamed skin covered with white scales, that tend to feel itchy or sore.

While the exact cause of psoriasis is not known, it is believed that one’s genes and immune system can be contributing factors.

Other triggers such as severe sunburns, stress, or skin injuries can also contribute to the occurrence of psoriasis.

Rosacea is a common, chronic, skin condition characterized by facial redness, the appearance of superficial dilated blood vessels on the face, as well as small red bumps that resemble acne.

The exact cause of rosacea remains unknown, but one of the causal factors appears to be abnormalities in blood vessels, causing the facial redness that rosacea is commonly known for, along with the appearance of dilated facial blood vessels.
