  2. Impetigo: Skin Infection

  3. • Impetigo – highly contagious bacterial skin infection, which can appear anywhere on the body but usually attacks exposed areas. • invades a deeper layer of skin and develops into ecthyma, a deeper form of skin infection. • most people get impetigo through physical contact who has it or shares other clothing. • it will most likely leave permanent scars and pigment changes. • infected areas appear in plaques ranging from Impetigo: Skin Infection

  4. Contact Dermatitis Jason Bischak Jeremy bischak Sage weinzierl Anatomy & phisiology

  5. About contact dermatitis • Beings as itching, redness, and swelling of the skin. • May eventually start to blister. • Caused by exposure of the skin to chemicals. • Example: Poison Ivy • Can provoke allergic responses in sensitive individuals.

  6. Psoriasis • Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful. • Experts believe that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin. • Things that can cause these flare-ups include a cold and dry climate, infections, stress, and dry skin. • When psoriasis is moderate or severe, the skin gets inflamed with raised red areas topped with loose, silvery, scaling skin. • If psoriasis is severe, the skin becomes itchy and tender. • Most cases of psoriasis are mild, and treatment begins with skin care. Which includes keeping skin moist with lotion

  7. Burns • A BURN is tissue damage and cell death caused by intense heat, electricity, UV radiation, or certain chemicals such as acid. • There are 3 main classifications of burns: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree - 1st Degree: Only epidermis is damaged. Area of burn becomes red. Ex: Sunburn - 2nd Degree: Involves injury to the epidermis & the upper region of the dermis. Skin is red, painful, & blisters appear. - 3rd Degree: Destroy entire thickness of skin. Burned areas appear blanched (gray-white) due to nerve endings being destroyed. • Burns are considered critical if…. • Over 25% of the body has 2nd degree burns • Over 10% of the body has 3rd degree burns • There are 3rd degree burns on the face, hands, or feet

  12. Basal Cell Carcinoma • They're abnormal, uncontrolled growths in lesions • In the deepest layer of the epidermis • Look like open sores and patches, pink growths, shiny bumps or scars • In rare cases it spreads from other parts of the body and becomes threatening • Caused by cumulative UV exposure or intense UV exposure • There are 2.8 million BCC diagnosed in the US each year

  13. Herpes/ Cold Sores • Nahel sabla. Breanna Saviñon, Taysia Saunders • Period 5

  14. Cold Sores • Nerve remains dormants until activated by emotional upset, fever, or UV radiation • Found in mucous membranes and the lip • "Fever blisters" • Small fluid filled with blisters • Caused by a herpes simplex infection • Itchy and sting • Virus localized in a cutaneous Herpes • Herpes are genital caused by sexual activities • The difference between cold sores and herpes is that herpes is a STD
