Skin Diseases

The color of the skin signifies different types of skin conditions. Some of the skin diseases are visible through a color or some color patches which appear on the skin. Skin cancer, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and acne are some of the common skin diseases which are discussed below at length.

Atopic Dermatitis

More commonly known as eczema, atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin disease. Its most common symptoms include irritating dry, red patches as well as rashes on the skin.


Melanoma is known as skin cancer which develops due to prolonged exposure to the harmful rays of the sun. These rays induce overproduction of melanin, the pigment found in skin. As a result, dark spots and moles are formed on the skin. Melanoma is a serious skin condition which can be fatal.


Psoriasis is another inflammatory disease which results in dry and itchy patches on the skin. This disease develops due to an abnormal reproduction of skin cells. So far, no permanent cure has been developed for psoriasis.


Acne is one of the most common skin disorders faced by people of all ages. The most common cause of acne among teenagers is hormonal imbalances. A lack of hygiene may also lead towards the development of acne as bacterial invasions and clogged pores result in the formation of pimples.
