There are hundreds of different skin conditions, and many of them can affect anyone. Though most of them are harmless, some are severe. And many can have a fairly negative effect on a person’s lifestyle. Others are widespread; for example, in 2015, dermatitis affected about 250 million people worldwide!
Moreover, about 2 in 3 British people will at some point suffer from one skin disease or another!
Since many skin conditions have similar symptoms, it’s important to understand the differences between them. It’s also important to contact your dermatologist as soon as possible when you notice any strange skin symptom. He/she should be able to diagnose the condition promptly and prescribe you a treatment.
