Skin Disorder Program
At IntelliHealthPlus Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand
The most common skin conditions can have some symptoms that are similar, so it is important to understand the differences between them.
They can be temporary or permanent, and may be painless or painful. Some have situational causes, while others may be genetic. Some skin conditions are minor, and others can be life-threatening.
While most skin disorders are minor, others can indicate a more serious issue. People should work closely with a dermatologist to diagnose and treat any skin condition to ensure that their lifestyle is not affected.
Some Skin Conditions can caused by autoimmune diseases—conditions where the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy tissues. Depending on the condition you might have, an autoimmune disease can affect a variety of body areas. Autoimmune diseases also commonly affect the skin.
The immune system would normally produce antibodies—proteins that react against bacteria, viruses, and toxins.
When these antibodies attack healthy tissues, they are called autoantibodies. With autoimmune skin conditions, autoantibodies attack skin cells or collagen tissues. Exact reasons for why the immune system malfunctions in autoimmune skin diseases are unknown.
Researchers link a variety of triggers for the development of these conditions, including ultraviolet radiation (from the sun), hormones, infections, and certain foods. Some prescription drugs may play a part in the development of these disorders. Stress can also trigger autoimmune skin conditions.
Researchers think that some people have a genetic predisposition for certain autoimmune skin diseases. People with specific genes have an increased risk for developing a particular skin condition, but only if other trigger factors exist.
Treatment for Skin Disorders
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that usually affects the face. People may mistake rosacea for acne, eczema, or an allergic skin reaction. The main symptoms of rosacea are facial flushing, irritated skin, and pimples. Other symptoms include blushing easily and eye problems.
There are four subtypes that cause other symptoms as well:
- Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea causes the typical redness, visible blood vessels, and flushing.
- Ocular rosacea can cause red and irritated eyes, swollen eyelids, and symptoms that look like a stye.
- Papulopustular rosacea causes redness, swelling, and is accompanied by breakouts that look like acne.
- Phymatous rosacea causes the skin to thicken and have a bumpy texture.
Lupus is an autoimmune disorder that varies from person to person. The disease attacks the immune system, causing inflammation and pain.
While lupus can affect any part of the body, symptoms on the skin include red patches or ring shapes on the skin, sunburn-like rashes on the nose and cheeks, or circular rashes that don’t itch or hurt. These may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as headaches, fever, fatigue, and swollen, stiff, or painful joints.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder. Symptoms typically include patches of abnormal skin. The affected skin is typically red, scaly, and very itchy. The affected areas vary in size and severity. There are five main types of psoriasis:
- Plaque psoriasis causes thick red patches of skin.
- Pustular psoriasis causes pustules surrounded by red skin.
- Erythodermic psoriasis causes patches of skin that look like severe burns covering large portions of the body.
- Inverse psoriasis causes a shiny red rash in the folds of the skin.
- Guttate psoriasis causes small red spots on the scalp, face, torso, and limbs.
Scleroderma is a chronic, autoimmune disease in which normal tissue is replaced with dense, thick fibrous tissue. Normally, the immune system helps defend the body against disease and infection. In patients with scleroderma, the immune system triggers other cells to produce too much collagen (a protein).
This extra collagen is deposited in the skin and organs, which causes hardening and thickening. Although it most often affects the skin, scleroderma also can affect many other parts of the body including the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, muscles and joints.
