    Skin Disorders

    The skin is subject to various problems - blemishes, infections and growth due to internal or external causes. It occurs equally among men and women.

    Some of the skin disorders are

    Lesion
    - Change in tissue formation.

    Papule
    - A firm raised lesion

    Pustule
    - Similar to papule but contains puss.

    Seborrhea
    - Excessive secretion of disturbed quantity of sebum is collected upon the skin in the form of oily coating. This is known as seborrhea. Some times a burning sensation is felt

    White heads
    - These are caused by pores getting clogged with hardened oil. Here the pores are not open. They therefore show up as tiny white pearly lumps beneath the surface of the skin. They usually form on oily skin.

    Black heads
    - In this case the pores are open and clogged sebum is exposed to the air. Oxidation takes place turning it black in colour.

    Acne
    - This is one of the most common skin disorders which primarily affects the adolescents as it can be caused by increase of sex hormones which takes place during puberty. This imbalance of sex hormones causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more sebum (Sebum is a semi-fluid oily substance which lubricates the skin). The pores of the skin enlarge and get blocked with hardened sebum. This result in black heads and pimples. Some of these develop into pustule which rupture and spread infection. Both men and women are affected by acne, but young men are more likely to have more severe, longer lasting forms of acne.

    Acne should never be neglected as it causes extensive scarring. Clinical and professional treatment is necessary.
