Skin is very important because its our first line of defense against infection.We must take care of our skin properly. Other people take food supplement to enhance their skin and make it glows. One way of taking car of skin is to put lotion or sunblock to prevent the harsh ultraviolet rays of sun from damaging it. But sometimes no matter how careful we re with our skin we still encounter skin diseases and allergies. I'm so luck I don't have skin disease. I don't have major problems with my skin aside from having white heads on my face sometimes. But I have managed that through going to facial clinic very month. How about you? have you encountered skin problems such as f=fungal infections and allergies, How dis you manage that?

Mayrah, Good Day! I did have a skin disorder, but for me it is a disorder not a disease. I once waiting for the arrival of my brother at a naval port but to lack of shade and exposed to direct sunlight for a couple of hours, my skin became so sensitive that it seems that I was burned 1st degree. I am always exposed to direct sunlight for I am a Track & Field Athlete. I was brought to the hospital as an emergency case for all exposed part of my body was burned to 1st degree. Physician was puzzled for the skin to react extremely without passing the stage of sun burn, just blistering. They called my case as photosensitivity and I have to be wearing long sleeves, ski mask, hat, umbrella and have to apply several lotion just to protect my skin for at least 6 months. I then reintroduce my exposure to the sun a little at a time until I became accustomed again with sun exposure. Doctors say that it is a form of allergy, others say too much exposure to the sun, while others say otherwise. For now my loving wife cares aot for my well being that sometimes it becomes too much for my sensibilities. Up to now that incident did not reoccur and hope that will not happen again in the future. It is a LIVING HELL TO EXPERIENCE SUCH PAIN OF BEING BURNED BY THE SUN. More power and hope to be of help. Ferritic

mayrah, We need the sun for vitamin D, the one responsible for absorbing calcium, but now a days you sure need not only lotion but also the right clothing. Lotions must have the highest UV protection. You must also remember that near the waters would bring about the highest UV due to reflection. More power. Ferritic

About 30 years ago I got what I thought was a pimple between my eye brows. I squeezed it a few times and after a month it didn't go away! It had a little seepage and just wouldn't heal. I went to my Dr. and he did a biopsy, sure enough it was skin cancer. I made an appointment for the following week and he removed it. A year latter it came back in the same place. I went back and he said he didn't get it all the first time, he did it again and it never returned. I was lucky to get it in time. tdemex

I remember having a fungal infection during my younger years but successfully got it over. But just 3 years ago, I unluckily have this allergy of shrimp. It causes skin irritation and rushes that always caused me to get to the hospital. And I don't want to get worst so I better avoid it.
