Skin Manifestations of Intestinal Diseases

The Professional Master’s Degree Clinical Dermatology of TECH trains professionals to guide their patients to handle skin diseases related to bowel problems.

Many people are still unaware that skin diseases are often closely related to changes in the intestinal flora, according to scientific studies patients which suffer chronic skin diseases, such as rosacea, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, often are related to an intestinal imbalance or dysbiosis. The Professional Master’s Degree Clinical Dermatology aims to explain in detail about various diseases, inflammations, and irritations, which are accompanied by a change in the appearance of the skin.

Considering the above, the skin harbors a large ecosystem of microorganisms that live in the upper layers of the epidermis and in the hair follicles, so any intestinal health problems, low defenses, stress, and lack of sleep, among other factors, will be directly reflected in the skin. In general, the following changes can be found:

  • Spots: small redness on the surface of the skin.
  • Papules, nodules, or lumps: palpable tissue structures.
  • Vesicles: fluid-filled cavities
  • Pustules: pus-filled cavities.
  • Hives: elevations on human skin the size of a pinhead or a coin.
  • Scales: sloughed cells on dry skin
  • Scars: fibrous network of skin that closes a wound after healing is complete
  • Cracks: narrow tear through the surface of the skin
  • Crusts: natural wound closure after a skin injury due to clotted and hardened blood

Generally, a dermatologist can recommend the proper treatment for each person, which can be incorporating a healthy diet, exercise, and the use of products such as medications and creams as needed, among other recommendations to help improve the quality of life of patients.
