Individuals who tend to blush or flush easily may have rosacea. This skin condition can cause acne-like breakouts, redness, thickening of the skin, and red, swollen eyes. Treatment may include oral antibiotics, topical creams, and laser therapy.
Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
This condition is common among infants and older children, but frequently persists into adulthood. If one’s skin has become red, itchy, and irritated, or has developed noticeable fluid-filled bumps, the individual may have eczema. Atopic eczema may be associated with asthma and hay fever. Treatment for eczema consists of a combination of topical and sometimes systemic medications.
Hair and Nail Disorders
Rough and scaly skin can be especially uncomfortable during the winter season. This skin condition is identified by red, scaly patches on the face, eyebrows, scalp, and ears. Treatment options may include topical corticosteroids, anti-yeast creams, and other topical medications.
Warts are benign growths that appear on the skin when a virus is present in the epidermis. This type of infection is contagious and can be spread. Some of the most common types of warts include plantar warts and flat warts. Treatment may include liquid nitrogen, electrocautery, and injecting the wart with medication.
