5 Rare Skin Conditions You Should Know About

skin-problems-conditions

The biggest organ of the body, skin can also be plagued with diseases and problems unheard of apart from common skin conditions.

Here are some of the rare skin conditions that you must know of:

1. Argyria

This skin condition is characterized by blue or gray skin and develops due to ingestion or exposure to a large quantity of silver for a long period of time. This is a long term skin problem without any known cure as of now. Causes for it can range from working in a sliver mine, developing photographs to consumption of silver supplements for curing a range of health problems such as diabetes, arthritis and so on. Apart from the toxicity caused by the exposure or ingestion of the element, a very common side effect of silver is a change in the color of your skin.

2. Dermatographia

A rare skin condition, a person suffering from this tends to have skin that is exceedingly sensitive to light scratches and minor injuries. This happens due to the hypersensitivity of the body’s immune system, which reveals itself in the skin. As a consequence it brings about the release of huge quantity of histamine, leading to the dilation of capillaries and formation of swellings when the surface of the skin gets scratched.

3. Harlequin Ichthyosis

Affecting newborns the most, the skin condition sees babies being born with hard and thick plates of skin all over their body. The condition renders newborns with the inability to control fluid and water loss, causing instances of severe dehydration. Newborns with this condition also experience trouble breathing, moving, controlling their body temperature as well as warding off infections. Many experts consider it to be a genetic disorder brought on by the mutation of the abca12 gene, leading to the improper development of the epidermis (outer layers of skin cells).

4. Xeroderma Pigmentosum

Over here, the individual is said to be sensitive to uv light, which makes him or her avoid sunlight whether direct or indirect and even florescent illumination. In addition to blisters on the skin and sunburn, symptoms of the condition also include dark and light skin patches. It can also cause your skin to become thin, resulting in the appearance of blood vessels and spots. Development of skin cancer is the final outcome of this skin condition.

5. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

This skin condition brings about the shedding and falling off of not only your skin but even the lining of your internal organs. The skin problem is closely associated with another form of skin disease called toxic epidermal necrolysis (ten). It is usually identified through blisters and painful rashes that develop on the skin surface.

Impetigo – 9 Factors that Can Trigger it

impetigo-treatment

Impetigo is a type of skin infection and general dermatology commonly seen in children and rarely in adults. It is contagious in nature; bacteria like staphylococcus aureus and at times, streptococcus pyogenes, are responsible for the occurrence of this infection. Generally, the face, hand and neck regions of the children get affected. Impetigo can be classified into two kinds: non-bullous impetigo or impetigo contagiosa and bullous impetigo.

Non-bullous impetigo appears like red sores, which burst rapidly, leaving behind a brownish yellow crust and is more contagious in nature. Bullous impetigo, on the other hand, is generally painless and the blisters are fluid-filled.

The causes of impetigo are as follows

  1. Warm and humid climate may trigger impetigo
  2. Contact with an infected child can spread the infection to a healthy child.
  3. Cuts or injuries can be responsible for impetigo
  4. Sports like football and wrestling can also sometimes lead to impetigo.
  5. Insect bite and skin rashes
  6. Prolonged use of diapers
  7. Skin problems like eczema or burns
  8. Skin inflammation may also result in impetigo.
  9. At times, animal bites may also result in impetigo.

Impetigo is generally noticed in children belonging to the age group of two-five years. Some of the most common symptoms of impetigo are mentioned below

  1. Blisters that are filled with fluid
  2. Red colored sores can pop out on the infected region
  3. Itching sensation
  4. Lymph nodes may become swollen
  5. Pus may come out from the sores
  6. Sometimes the sores may look like pimples

Impetigo, though easily curable, must not be ignored as it can spread rapidly to the other parts of your body.

Keratosis Pilaris – Causes, Management and Treatment

keratosis-pilaris

The skin has a protein called keratin that protects it from infections and other harmful toxins. For various reasons, mostly unknown, but likely genetic, there could be a build up of this keratin leading to small, light-colored, hard bumps under the skin that can feel like sandpaper. This condition is medically known as keratosis pilaris. These pillars of keratin block the hair follicles that open onto the surface of the skin, and when a number of follicles are blocked, it leads to dry, bumpy feeling. In common words, it is also referred to as chicken skin, chicken bumps, or goose bumps.

  1. Occurrence: The onset is usually in the first decade of life, continues to grow in number in teenagers, and slowly subsides as they grow older. People with dry skin are more likely to have these bumps than people with oily skin. The most commonly affected areas include upper arms, thighs, buttocks and very rarely on the face.
  2. Cause: This is a genetic disorder, and the bumps are due to excessive formation and buildup of keratin due to faulty genes. There could be surplus skin formation under these follicles or hair follicles trapped under these bumps. There could be a small area of inflammation and redness around the bumps.
  3. Weather Correlation: Keratosis pilaris is more common and evident during the winter months when the skin is normally drier than in summer months. Some people could have this condition lifelong, with only manifestation seen in winters and complete absence of bumps in the summer months.
  4. Symptoms: The condition is usually asymptomatic, except for the dryness, and does not cause itching or medical harm. The esthetic concern, especially if in upper arms, is the only concern. Some people could be affected by the hard, bumpy feeling of the skin. There are no long-term medical symptoms or harmful effects of this condition though.
  5. Treatment: No treatment is required; however, moisturizers may be required to prevent the bumps from drying up. In very severe cases, creams may be used to remove dead skin cells and to prevent plugged follicles. Alpha hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid containing creams can be used to remove the dead skin cells. These also help moisturize the skin and reduce dryness. Vitamin A containing creams can be used to unplug the hair follicles.
  6. A word of caution though: These creams can cause itching and redness. Since this condition is prevalent in children, these creams need to be used only if absolutely essential and with medical prescriptions. The condition is harmless and self-limiting, so no treatment is mandatory. Patient education is of utmost importance in these cases.

All About Laser Hair Removal

Although much has been spoken in favor as well as against the removal of body hair in different discourses, one can’t deny the fact that hair removal has emerged as one of the most pertinent fashion concerns for many in the recent times. To remove unwanted hair, one may resort to various techniques of hair removal. There are several gender norms associated with body hair. Accordingly, hair removal methods vary across the genders. In the recent context, more people are predisposed towards a more tenable solution to the problem of unwanted hair. Consequently, curiosity and preference for laser surgeries have become more widespread.

Body hair is essentially dead protein or keratin. While some may be coarse and darker, the others are fine and light. The appearance and the texture of the hair depend upon the anatomical location. The preference to keep or evict body hair may differ but one must take cognizance of the fact that body hair serves certain critical functions. Hair protects the skin from external trauma and ultraviolet rays. Certain hair removing techniques also tantamount to damage to your skin. However, for various cosmetic purposes, sooner or later we all resort to one hair removal technique or the other.

Be it the sleek shave before the much awaited date or the spotless underarms when sporting the halter dress, unwanted hair should never get in the way of the big day. For long lasting treatment, Laser surgery and electrolysis have become popular methods. Laser therapy focuses concentrated light on the hair follicles and destroys them completely. Laser therapy minimizes the damage to the skin as well as works effectively in removing hair from delicate areas like the bikini line, underarms and face. While laser hair removal tactics are relatively harmless, in order to assuage any sort of exposure to the sun. One must also be mindful of the fact that sometimes they can be painful.

All About Laser Photofacial

all-about-laser-photofacial-skinology

This interesting technique is a term for the treatment of your skin for various conditions using a light-based technology. It is mostly used for the face and neck areas. It is also known as a foto facial, facial rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation.

How Does Laser Photofacial Works?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) is beamed at the skin in controlled broad spectrum light waves that are aimed at either the hemoglobin or the melanin and penetrate deep into the skin. This light breaks the wall of the blood vessel or the melanin pigment, causing them to be absorbed by the body. Therefore, the basic principle behind this versatile skin procedure is the heating and stimulation of the dermis, while protecting and cooling the epidermis.

What is it used for?

The intense pulsed light (IPL) is used to primarily boost collagen, fix brown spots and broken capillaries, but there also other uses:

1. Lightening and removal of sun spots or age spots

2. Reducing redness or rosacea

3. Controlling flushing

4. Reduction of oiliness

5. Lightening of acne scars

6. Freckled skin

7. Smoothening of uneven skin texture

The duration of the treatment depends on the extent of the issue and damage caused and how your skin responds in return. It is a cheaper alternative to plastic surgery and much gentler and completely non-invasive too. It is a quick procedure that lasts about thirty minutes. It is a painless procedure with some mild discomfort that may be felt, like a rubber band snapping. Therefore, there is minimal risk of complications and recovery time is almost immediate. Slight redness of skin is the most common side effect that may be seen, but that too fades in a while.

You would need 3-5 treatments over a span of few months in order to get optimal results. Improvement with each procedure is noted and monitored. It is one of the safest light-based treatments available out there, with positive results. With this procedure, come away feeling younger with a blemish free, glowing face.
