The skin is the body's most exposed organ. Despite being the body's largest organ, the importance of skin health is sometimes underestimated. Although the majority of skin conditions are not life-threatening, many can be severe and disfiguring enough to significantly reduce a patient's quality of life. Skin conditions can have a substantial impact on a patient's social and emotional well-being as well as their physical appearance. Even the smallest skin lesions have been demonstrated to have a negative impact on a person's overall health. A myriad of medical conditions, particularly dermatologic conditions, are stigmatizing to their sufferers, making them feel inferior, out of norm, or unwanted. Symptoms like redness, swelling, burning, and itching can be caused by anything that irritates, clogs, or inflames the skin. Rashes, hives, and other skin issues can be caused by allergies, irritants, the genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems.
