Skin Disorders

Introduction

Our skin – our body’s wrapper and barrier from attack, both visible and invisible. It is a huge part of our visual representation to the world, meaning it affects how others perceive us and we perceive ourselves.

Because of these perceptions, and because our self-esteem is tied (usually excessively) to them, anything which compromises our skin usually affects an individual’s peace of mind and happiness.

However, problems with the skin can go far beyond the aesthetic, ranging from annoying, through uncomfortable and painful, to dangerous.

When we take the time to consider the mighty job our skin does in protecting us from the harmful environmental elements thrown at us, it is amazing that our skin does not fail more than it does.

Considering how pre-occupied most of us are with our skin, it is a paradox that we are often so ignorant of our skin and its needs until it shows signs of damage. This damage often presents as what is known as a skin disorder.

This eBook details some of the common disorders that can affect our skin, their causes, symptoms, effects, and methods of prevention and treatment.
