Shingles: what is it?

The zoster manifests as rash pain along with a nerve or nerve ganglia. These rashes occur as a result of the reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox, varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Shingles most often affect the chest or face, but all parts of the body can be affected. Sometimes the pain caused by shingles persists for months or even years after the rash is healed: this pain is […]

Vitiligo

The vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of white spots on the feet, hands, face, lips, or any other body part. These spots are caused by a “depigmentation”, that is to say, the disappearance of melanocytes, the cells responsible for the color of the skin (pigmentation). The depigmentation may be more or less important, and the white spots, […]

aging-skin-care

We would like to continue to look as young as we feel “inside”, but the deadline is inevitable: over time, the skin cells are renewed more slowly (causing a thickening of the epidermis to causes dead cells that accumulate); collagen fibers deteriorate in the dermis; the sebaceous and sweat glands atrophy (reducing hydration); and gravity attracts the soft […]

The vulgar and plantar warts

Plantar-wart

The warts are small rough protuberances benign, well-defined, which form in the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin). They are usually a few millimeters in diameter but may be larger. They result from an infection caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV) virus and can be contagious. They are most often painless and do not necessarily require treatment. Children and adolescents are the most likely to be affected.

Urticaria: recognize an attack of urticaria

Definition of urticaria Urticaria is a rash that is characterized by itching and the appearance of raised red patches (“papules”), which resemble stinging nettles (the word urticaria comes from the Latin urtica, which means nettle). Urticaria is a symptom rather than a disease, and its causes are multiple. We distinguish: acute urticaria, which is manifested by one or […]
