|Skin in Health and Disease|
From the Preface of Skin in Health and Disease
The skin is a sensing, reactive, dynamic surface that covers the body. The skin is treated as an organ in biology and medicine and like other organs, the skin offers many vital services and has specific requirements to remain fully functional. Unlike other organs, the skin is exposed to the environment and suffers damage from the sun, the air, and water The skin is exposed to foreign chemicals that do damage. Some chemicals are deliberately applied to the skin, others are in the environment. Areas of skin are infected almost daily. Some infections are acute and even life-threatening, other infections are chronic and difficult to treat. Fungal infections are the most common.
Skin diseases are numerous and the skin is involved in over a thousand systemic diseases including genetic disorders. This book focuses on the most common skin disorders that can be controlled by changes in skin care, diet and the environment. Eczema, for example, is sometimes an expression of food allergy, or allergy to contact materials. Dermatologist may deny the food allergy causes, so that their patients often have to make independent decisions. In all aspects of medicine, I advocate responsible self-management and offer this book as primer and reference for self-managers with skin problems.

reasonable interpretation of skin science. Many dermatologists have moved from
treating disease to offering cosmetic advice and procedures such as chemical
peels, botox and lasers. Plastic surgeons are busy removing subcutaneous fat and
sagging skin. New more effective and more risky immune blocking agents have been
introduced to treat eczemas and psoriasis. Patients need more and better
information to make good choices about the care of their skin.
Many skin problems come from the inside and often show dietary problems with
dramatic displays of pimples, rashes, flushing, bumps, hives, blisters and
