Consult a physician

Many affected people do not consult a physician. A new Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology study estimates the prevalence of skin diseases outside the typical medical setting.

To include people who never or rarely seek medical aid, the study did not rely on health insurance data, but rather on data collected at the Munich Oktoberfest in Germany. Screening examinations were performed randomly on participating visitors.

Many common skin disorders require the clinical care of a physician or other health care professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.

  • Acne

  • Bed Sores
  • Dry Skin
  • Calluses and Corns

  • Keratosis Pilaris

  • Psoriasis

  • Pityriasis Rosea

  • Rosacea

  • Sebaceous Cysts

Skin Rashes

Skin rashes can occur from a variety of factors, including infections, heat, allergens, immune system disorders and medications. One of the most common skin disorders that causes a rash is atopic dermatitis (ay-TOP-ik dur-muh-TI-tis), also known as eczema.

Atopic dermatitis is an ongoing (chronic) condition that makes skin red and itchy. Most often it appears as patches on the hands, feet, ankles, neck, upper body and limbs. It tends to flare up periodically and then subside for a time.

At-home interventions can lessen symptoms and reduce the risk of flare-ups. Self-care habits include avoiding harsh soaps and other irritants and applying creams or lotions regularly. Medicated anti-itch creams or ointments also can ease the discomfort caused by symptoms.
