Lets not forget house hold cleaners: laundry soap, softener,., shampoos, things we use for the first time. Sometimes even what your derma, or Dr. may prescibe to you may have an allergic reaction to your immune or skin. Or types of jewelary. Or clothes on your body. Some fabrics can leave an allery on your skin. Perfumes,.
chemical and food allergies and nutritional deficiencies. i think that systemic candida infection is a common, but often overlooked problem that cause symptoms ranging from IBS to symptoms that can mimic neurological disease or mental illness. and definitely all kinds of skin problems.
for the record, adding coconut oil to your diet and cutting out sugars can keep that candida in check.
I agree with most on here but it's actually not one or the other but a combination of various effects from the environment, poor air quality, fast food, chemically laden packaged store food, bad chlorine filled water, exposure to too much medications (i.e. antibiotics -they give those things out like its candy! but so harmful to immune) chemical laden hygiene products such as lotions, soaps, and shampoo. This is our daily life! This takes its toll on some faster than others and acne occurs. That is also the cause for adult acne in those who never had acne as a teen also. Sad but not incureable.
Chemicals...In everything packaged..and not packaged. Food...lotions for skin etc. Gee even the water in some countries have chemicals added to kill germs. Probable cause of diseases...this is my opinion anyways.
Skin problems stomach problems leg problems problems just ask for the purple pill you saw on tv stay hunkered down in front of the tv with aluminum foil on your head keep the doors locked and don't talk to nobdy.
The question is very genera and broad, the causes to skin diseases can be: -Autoimmunity, or unknown causes -Infections(fungal,bacterial,viral) -Allergy -Stress -Low immunity and nutritional deficiencies
or a combination of more than one reason (certain infection are more common in persons with low immunity)
Fungus is the number one cause for all skin diseases even STD's.
I discovered this in 2009 and it is so easy to prove. Buy several over the counter fungicides like Lotrimin, Tinactin or Monostat and apply twice a day as directed on the label.
It doesn't matter what kind of suspicious disease you are diagnosed, if you apply a fungicide and you get real relief it is because fungus is the cause. Even crusty skin cancer will respond extremely well to the right fungicide.
Because there are hundreds of different types of fungus, you may have to try several types before you get the perfect one. Usually any fungicide will give major relief but the right formula could eliminate the disease once and for all.
If it is a skin disease it is a 95% chance it is a fungus, treat it as such and enjoy the relief.
I would say genetics and environment. Not just pollutants, but humidity can cause problems as well. I deal with tinea versicolor (it is a skin fungus) and high humidity in late spring and summer are miserable times, especially when sweating. I have even noticed stress making it worse, just not causing it.
Excessive carbs and sugars feed fungus and that is the only way diet plays a roll in skin disease.
Fungus is 90% to 95% cause of all skin diseases. If you people will try over the counter fungicides you WILL help change medicine.
Tinactin and Lotrimin will do more of a rash, cold sore, itch, psoriasis or eczema than any antibiotic, antiviral, steroid or prescription with the exception of prescription fungicides.
Do the research by using them and have your friends and family use them and you will know that fungus is the answer to this hub. From that point on this hub can be a support group for curing skin diseases instead of people just guessing and clouding the truth.
if the problem is a fungal infection it is usually systemic in chronic skin conditions. unless you can EAT the OTC fungal treatments you mentioned (you can't, so don't) then this won't treat anything but the physical symptom/manifestation of the cause. besides, those medicines have a lot of detrimental chemicals in them, it shouldn't be overused.
i've heard the anti-candida diet is effective. other than that if you suspect its a candida or other type of internal fungal problem then a doctors visit would be advisable, not treating with lotrimin.
The anti-candida diet is just about as useless on external fungus as OTC fungicides for systemic fungus, furthermore Candida is the least of a person's fungal worries. Over the counter fungicides are going to be the single most effective treatment for any external signs and symptoms of fungus, or in other words ANY skin disease. You can try all the herbal and "all natural" products but in the end you will find OTC fungicides safer and more effective because it doesn't matter what you use, it has to have the power to kill fungus which means it must be able to poison fungus.
A doctors visit would be a waste of money and nothing they can prescribe will work better than Lotrimin or Tinactin sprays or creams. Not only do you waste the money on the visit, you will pay for a prescription that will not come close to the effectiveness of a Walmart OTC fungicide.
There is only one way to cure systemic fungus and that is to engage your own immune response and that response requires no medicine or products so your doctor will not touch any cures for skin diseases by curing fungus. Knowledge is the cure. Study fungus and find the truth and a cure will be the end result. If you are not cures, you haven't found the truth.
Or you can toss your money away on medicine and suffer for the rest of your life. I suggest you all Google fungus and dig deep. Forget about medicine western or alternative, both are businesses that thrive off of your disease. A cure will kill the cash cow so you will not find the truth in medicine of any kind.
As I know cellulitis infection (one of most common skin disease)is usually caused by normal skin flora or by exogenous bacteria (staph or strep). Important is to say that in most cases this type of skin disease is occurred on area where the skin was previously broken, that may be cuts, blisters, burns, cracks in the skin, surgical wounds and else.
If you do not take care of your body ,it suffers from skin diseases at some time of your life ,humidity can trigger the condition as it becomes a breading place for the parasites ,so just keep your self clean and wear clean clothes ,eat healthy so that your immune system never falls down ,and you are always healthy with supple skin,yet if you have any skin problem the best thing is to use alum over the affected area ,see how you benefit .
The skin is the body's second largest excretory organ after the colon. If you're having skin problems it is most likely because your colon is blocked and cannot operate efficiently enough. There are lots of very gentle colon-cleansing herbal remedies that can be researched on the web. Chances are if you go this route you will see a marked improvement in your skin.
I have not read most of the replies, so if this is a a repetition, please pardon me ....
My friends all refer to "Water" as "Dr. Dave's prescription". Most Americans do not drink enough water. It cleanses the colon (Hi Madame X!) and the pours, it is the definition of "natural" moisturizer. It helps maintain proper temperature. It flushes toxins that make the skin look bad.
Hi BD! I recommend reading "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" I can never remember the author's name (even though I wrote a hub about it!! my bad). This guy is a genius and outlines the extraordinary benefits of being properly hydrated.
I picked up a skin rash in 2007, I did a little research to find out how a received this particular rash. The reading material stated this rash was due to a weakening immune system. Fist, I would find out if your immune system is hyperactive or normal. Then find out how to improve your immune system or lessen its hyperactivity.
I agree with several people above! Candida, one that I suffer, is overlooked by doctors. They don't even recognize it as a medical condition. Toxic environment, tainted foods, allergies to common every day things like soaps, shampoos, laundry detergents, etc. Weakened immune system from toxic overload!!! I suffer all of this and it has caused many skin problems for me, staph, candida, acne, precancer cells. I was considered completely autoimmune until 6 months ago. It all weakens the immune system until it spiral out of control causing various autoimmunities. The skin expels what toxins the liver can't keep up with. It's the largest organ of the body that breaths, needs good nutrition inside and out, and removes toxins. I actually have a hub on exposure to various allergens/ toxins, how it effects our bodies, and why doctors do not recognize these conditions.
Skin diseases happen for many reasons. One reason is that a person's hereditary factors determine what weaknesses he or she will have during their life time. Our bodies are predetermined for the weaknesses, but can we do anything about preventing a severe outcome to a blue print already created? By using proper methods such as sun screen to avoid harmful sun rays, and reporting to the doctor unusual markings on the skin, will aid our defense to promote good skin. Skin diseases are common and occur as acute problems and chronic ones. A dermatologist is a good source to check on any suspicious skin changes that may have occurred.
