Skin Disorders : Permanent Skin Conditions
Most permanent skin conditions result from a genetic trait that predisposes an individual to the development of the disorder. Some are present from birth, while others appear suddenly later in life. Still others only manifest themselves after an illness weakens the individual’s immune system.
Examples of chronic skin conditions include rosacea, psoriasis, and vitiligo.
Although some permanent skin disorders have effective treatments that enable extended periods of remission, others are incurable and always active.
