Skin is the largest organ of our body, it not only makes us look presentable, but also guards the body from the extremes of temperature and weather. The skin can be affected by various disorders varying in intensity and with different symptoms. It is important to take skin disorders seriously because most of them might be minor but they might indicate some serious issue which needs the attention of a physician or healthcare professional.
Skin disorders can be due to a variety of causes – they can be caused by infections (bacterial, viral or fungal), might be cause by immune system dysfunction (lichen planus) or can have genetic causes. Some may have sitatutional or physiological reasons (like teen-age Acne).
