Dermatitis is not dangerous, but most types cause red, swollen and itchy skin. Factors that can cause dermatitis/eczema include other diseases, irritating substances, allergies and genetic makeup.

Hair Disorders

Hair Disorders can include infection of the hair follicles, hair loss, excessively oily or dry hair/scalp, and many other conditions that can affect the health and appearance of the hair.


Nail disorders include problems with the color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails. They can be caused by injuries, fungus or yeast, bacterial infection, viral warts under the nail, or certain infections.


Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes itchy or sore patches of thick, red skin with silvery scales. Psoriasis usually appears on the elbows, knees, scalp, back, face, palms and feet, but it can show up on other parts of the body.


Rosacea is a common skin condition associated with a tendency to flush or blush more easily than other people. The redness most commonly involves the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. 

Skin Allergies

A person with skin allergies has an oversensitive immune response to certain substances (allergens), wherein chemicals called histamines are released. This usually causes itching, swelling, hives, rashes, and other symptoms, which may vary from person to person.

Skin Cancers

The 2 most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands and arms.

Skin Infections

There are many different types of skin infections – including those caused by bacteria, staphylococcus, yeast, fungi and more.


These small, usually painless growths on the skin are caused by a virus. They are generally harmless, but can be disfiguring, embarrassing, and occasionally itchy or painful (particularly on the feet).
