About Skin Disorders

A number of people around the world suffer from skin disorders, the most common being acne, psoriasis and eczema. These skin conditions can cause not only dry, itchy, red skin, but also unattractive blotches and blemishes. Both diseases can also affect people of all ages. Psoriasis can also be associated with other health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and depression. All three of these common skin disorders can be recurring, chronic problems and can be aggravated by things such as smoking, stress, and excessive alcohol conditions. Acne can be caused by dirty or blocked pores. Psoriasis and eczema can be caused by a defect in the growth of skin cells in your body; however, the cause of these conditions is really unknown. Therefore, many times treating the symptom is the only way to make these diseases bearable.

Acne is really the most common skin disorder but it can be treated in a number of ways. Many people use make up to try to hide the imperfections. This only causes more acne and more problems. The best ways to treat acne can be the same as the other mentioned skin conditions. Some of these methods are mentioned below.

There are different types of psoriasis and eczema that can affect areas all over the body from your face to the genitals. The most common type of eczema is called atopic eczema. This can also be the most severe. The different types of psoriasis include plaque, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic. Even though there are different types, most are treated the same way. These methods are mentioned next.

There are a number of different ways to treat these common skin disorders. Some people going to the doctors and getting a prescription is the best way to help. Doctors will most likely prescribe a cream with steroids but this doesn't always work and sometimes it's more of a pain to have to make and keep an appointment, then wait for a prescription to be filled. Here are some things you can do that will help your skin condition and not break your bank. The first thing is to change your diet. Raw vegetables, organic fresh fruits, and nuts can help. Also, salmon and other fish can have positive affects because they contain fatty omega acids. Other natural ingredients include virgin coconut oil which contains good fatty acids that help nourish dry skin, Zinc, vitamin B, and grape juice. The next thing to do is to avoid things that exacerbate the condition. Because they are skin disorders, anything such as laundry detergent, rough or wool clothing fabrics, and heavily perfumed lotions can irritate the skin and make your condition worse. Another thing to do is have an allergy test done, or keep a journal of things you come in contact with that make your disease flare-up. The next remedy is a very simple one. Wash your hands very frequently and put on a light moisturizer after. Bacteria on your hands can worsen the condition however remember the light moisturizer because washing too much without will cause over-drying.

Beyond changing habits such as eating, or wearing certain fabrics, a product called Help for Skin Disorders by Bell helps cleanse and purify your blood. Getting rid of impurities in the blood will help relieve the stress and embarrassment of these skin disorders.
