Your skin, the body’s biggest organ, shields you from the elements. However, you can sometimes still develop skin conditions or various problems with your skin. Skin diseases are conditions that affect your skin. These diseases may cause rashes, inflammation, itchiness, or other skin changes. Some skin conditions may be genetic, while lifestyle factors may cause others. Several skin conditions can last throughout life. Some may begin in childhood and continue into adulthood. Sometimes, the symptoms are not always present but flare up at certain times.

When you have found your disease or condition, you look for the treatment color. The treatment colors are magenta (red-blue), blue, cyan (blue-green), green, yellow (red-green), and red. I give the treatment colors a number. Magenta = 0, blue = 1, cyan = 2, green = 3, yellow = 4, and red = 5. Burns would then be categorized as 20-00-0. Here, the last digit, the treatment color, is magenta. The first two digits are the disease/condition group (Skin Diseases are 20). The next two digits (Burns is 00) are the illness within the group, and the last digit (magenta is 0) is the treatment color.

When you use the projector, click on your treatment color, and a large image of it will appear. Make the color cover the whole page and project it onto yourself. When you use the LED light bulb, you choose your color manually.

Burns are tissue damage caused by heat, exposure to the sun or other radiation, or chemical or electrical contact. They can be minor medical problems or life-threatening emergencies.

Burn symptoms vary depending on the depth of the skin damage. The signs and symptoms of a severe burn can develop in a day or two.

1st-degree burn. This minor burn affects only the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). However, it may cause redness and pain.

2nd-degree burn. This type of burn affects both the epidermis and the second layer of skin (dermis). It may cause swelling and red, white, or splotchy skin. Blisters may develop, and pain can be severe. In addition, deep second-degree burns can cause scarring.

3rd-degree burn. This burn reaches the fat layer beneath the skin. Burned areas may be black, brown, or white. As a result, the skin may look leathery. In addition, third-degree burns can destroy nerves, causing numbness.

Corns are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers. Corns can be unsightly.

If you’re healthy, you need treatment for corns and calluses only if they cause discomfort. For most people, eliminating the source of friction or pressure makes corns disappear.

If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet, you’re at greater risk of complications from corns.

A cyst is a sac-like pocket of membranous tissue that contains fluid, air, or other substances. They can grow almost anywhere in your body or under your skin. There are many types of cysts. Most of them are benign or noncancerous.

Ringworm is a common skin infection caused by a fungus. It’s called “ringworm” because it can cause a circular rash (shaped like a ring) that is usually red and itchy. Anyone can get ringworm.
