Skin Disorders
Classification of skin disorders can be confusing because of overlapping terminology. The common lay term "rash" is loosely used to signify any number of skin disorders characterized by itchy, red, irritated skin eruptions, including dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives). Other common skin problems include acne, keratosis (hardening of the skin), canker sores, premature aging, and dryness.

The largest organ in the human body, skin serves as the crucial mediator between the inner body and the external environment and reflects the status of the body's internal health. Although surface irritants can be the source of skin problems, many skin conditions are actually systemic in origin, and thus may be effectively treated by correcting physiological imbalances within the body.

The following GSDL assessments pinpoint dysfunctions that can trigger a wide range of skin disorders. For more information click on link below:
