Skin Problems

Skin problems are common. Young adolescents have acne. The middle-aged have wrinkles and age spots. Athletes have skin problems and disorders like premature wrinkles since they are mostly outdoors. It is not also uncommon for people to experience some skin disorder in the different stages of their lives.

Common Skin Problems

There are a lot of causes for common skin problems. A skin problem can be triggered by unhealthy lifestyles, improper diet, medication, and contact with those who have contagious skin conditions. The most difficult to eliminate is skin markings, which are also called hemangiomas.

One of the common skin problems is acne. Young adults are susceptible to this skin condition of acne skin problems because they have active sebaceous glands. Some middle aged persons get acne from several possible sources like medication, improper skin care habits, and allergic reactions.

When dead skin cells and oil clog the pores, blemishes appear. If the swollen blemishes are few and angry, you have a mild form of acne. Severe acne is the condition when almost all of the face is occupied by the blemishes. These can spread to the neck and chest, and even the back. This condition is acne vulgaris.

Facial Skin Problems

Severe acne skin problems can cause serious scarring and emotional problems. Young adolescents developing inferiority complex are less outgoing and terribly shy. They eventually outgrow their acne but some endure the problem up to their 40s and 50s. Women are most likely to have acne until late in life.

Symptoms of acne are whiteheads, pimples, and blackheads. The deep cystic lesions or pimples are often painful and hot to the touch. These blemishes can lead to scarring. Early skin care regimen and cure of the condition will prevent scarring and prevent further increase in the facial skin problems.

Treatment of acne vulgaris can take up to 8 weeks. During this acne treatment the skin problem will get worse before it gets any better. Gentle cleansing with mild soap and water or over the counter medication can ease the acne problem. The regular regimen of proper hygiene, following natural skin care habits and use of benzoyl peroxide lotions can control mild acne, and prevent a new crop of pimples to develop.

When the condition is severe or moderate, the doctor will prescribe oral antibiotics and topical benzoyl peroxide applications. The combined skin treatment will work better and the results will last longer.

One of the other common skin problems is age spots. Age spots, can be minimized with a regimen prescribed by the manufacturer of the pigmentation repair cream. But before any of these creams can be applied, it is best to get the doctor’s advice. Sometimes these creams can cause severe allergic reactions. Hence it is prudent to have a skin test of the product before applying it to the affected areas.

For skin markings, early treatment for infants is effective, but there are cases when hemangiomas in infants disappear as they grow older – even before they reach school age. Adults can have laser applications but not without a physician’s recommendation.

Skin problems can be serious and symptomatic of other health problems. If you observe a skin problem such as unusual skin growth or protuberances, see a doctor immediately for a medical evaluation. It is better to be safe than sorry.
