Skin Diseases and Disorders
Now let's take a closer look at skin diseases, disorders and conditions. Persons with boils, infected wounds, open sores, or abrasions, or weeping dermatological lesions, should avoid working where there is a likelihood that they could contaminate healthcare supplies, body art equipment, or working surfaces. Workers skin should be free of rash or infection. And healthcare workers, tattoo artists and care givers should cover any sores with bandages to avoid the potential spread of disease. Skin is one of the best defenses we have against infectious diseases, and I think it's important that we take a look at the anatomy of the skin.
See, skin is the largest organ of the body. It contains blood vessels, sensory receptors, nerves and sweat glands. It's made up of the epidermis and the dermis. And it varies in thickness from about one and a half to four millimeters or more. Skin is the first line of defense against infection. Now, the epidermis is the thick outer layer of the tissue, and the dermis is the strong flexible second layer of connective tissue. The dermis is filled with blood vessels, and unclean tattooing or body art is a high risk activity for bloodborne pathogens,.
Because it involves multiple punctures of that skin. And when we put the pigment under the skin, it goes into the actual lower dermis levels, which is completely unprotected from disease. Hypodermis is just below the skin. It's the fatty layer, also called the subcutaneous layer. There are three commonly spread skin diseases that we should mention, and we're going to break them into bacterial, viral and fungal. The first one bacterial, MRSA, otherwise known as methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus, infection can look like an ordinary skin wound, a boil or an infected sore,.
Highly contagious. Now the second type, viral, we're going to look at herpes simplex. Generally it's found on the face, the scalp, arms, neck and upper chest. It's indicated by small round blisters, and when they're broken can secrete a clear or a yellowish fluid. People contract herpes by touching the infected yellowish fluid, and then spreading it to nonintact skin, mucus membranes or other areas of their body. The last, fungal infection, most popularly known as athlete's foot or ringworm. It can cause red, patchy, or flaky itchy areas. It is contagious and is easily spread from one person to another.
It spreads when infected areas on another person, or contaminated surfaces, are touched. And then the effected areas really should be kept clean and dry, and in many cases, you'll probably need to get a medication that is an antifungal to finally rid yourself of that infection. Now some people with the following conditions are more prone to skin disorders. Healing may be adversely effected by receiving tattoos or body art. A history of Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C. HIV or actually the autoimmune deficiency symdrome. Diabetes. A history of hemophilia or any other blood disorder or disease.

DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi '6
Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it's your fingers that are itching, it's not because they're dry. Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it's not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters. Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps.
Were filled with sweat. That's why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn't sweat it's actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood. The most common cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I've only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients. The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds.
And I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off. Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It's like taking horizontal slices through a sphere.
Starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again. To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn't stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch to come back worse a few minutes later. After the itch and bumps are gone, the flaking skin can continue for a week. It can be camouflaged with a moisturizer,.
