Our face represents our calling card, therefore issues such as dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, and rosacea often involve discomfort and embarrassment at any age when they appear.
Dermatitis contains different skin pathologies of an inflammatory, non-contagious nature. There are, as mentioned, several, however the most common symptoms are: itching, redness, slight swelling of the skin and/or small blisters.
Psoriasis is a chronic dermatitis, manifested by circumscribed erythematosus papules and plaques, covered with silvery flakes. The triggers can be trauma, infections, certain medications, and genetic predisposition.
Acne instead results from an inflammation of the sebaceous glands, which can be manifested by: papules, pustules, comedos, cysts and fistulas in severe cases. The cause must be found in an excessive production of sebum by the sebaceous gland attached to each hair, that is the fat that makes the skin elastic and protected. Teenagers are more prone to acne, since at that age the production of sebum reaches its maximum level.
In the end, the rosacea consists in the presence of dilated capillaries at the height of the cheeks, making them reddish and with uneven blotches. This is mostly a female problem after the age of 30, in subjects with very thin, irritable, and sensitive skin.
