Skin Disorder - Rash

Various Skin Disorders


Bruises

Calluses
Sometimes it pays to have thick skin, sometimes it's a nuisance. Here's help on how to avoid getting calluses.

Dyshidrosis
I often suffer from Dyshidrosis myself. Its a kind of dermatitis where small, fluid-filled blisters appear on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet, or both. Mine are usually on my hands and they itch like crazy.

Hangnail
A hangnail is a fingernail condition where excess skin around the nail partially detaches from the nail, usually due to dryness, cuticle cutting or nail biting. A minor annoyance, they can look bad and become painful too. Check here for some remedies as well as prevention tips.

Melanoma

Poison Ivy

Rosacea

Scabies

Scalp Itch

Stretch Marks
As horrible as stretch marks can look, it's nice to know they can be prevented with good skincare. Skin disorder such as these are often diminished with the use of sunless tanning lotions.

Sunburn or Sun Poisoning
Ouch! Sunburns are one of my least favorite skin issues. I actually started off this summer by getting a bad sunburn the first time I went to the beach. I had tan lines to remind me of it all summer long.

Warts
Many of us have had a wart appear somewhere on our bodies at one time or another. Other than being a nuisance, most of them are harmless and will go away on their own.

Windburn
While it resembles a sunburn, windburn doesn't have the potentially deadly long-term effects.
