Common Cases in Dermatology

There are more than 2000 conditions that may affect the skin. The most common include:

  • Hair loss: This is a usually hereditary and prevalent condition. However, issues such as hair lice might also cause hair loss.
  • Acne: It is the most prevalent skin condition caused by various reasons that result in the formation of pimples.
  • Warts: These are non-cancerous, contagious skin growths resulting from a virus affecting the upper part of your skin.
  • Dermatitis: This swelling of part of the skin is accompanied by an itchy rash. The most widespread one is atopic dermatitis.
  • Vitiligo: The skin loses its color pigment, making skin parts lighter than others.
  • Shingles:  A virus infects the skin, causing a rash that may sometimes be painful.
  • Psoriasis: Skin cells multiply rapidly, causing skin parts to be either thick, scaly, or purplish.
  • Skin Cancer: Many people develop skin cancer at one point in their life, the most widespread being melanoma and basal cell carcinoma.
  • Nail problems: The skin may also be damaged below the nails or around them due to fungal infections or ingrown nails.
