Why should Isign up for WebMD?
With a WebMD Account you can:
Skin that is red and painful and that swells up and blisters may mean that deep skin layers and nerve endings have been damaged (second-degree burn).
Wrinkles are a by-product of the aging process. With age, skin cells divide more slowly, and the inner layer, called the dermis, begins to thin.
Improvement after six treatments with 1064 nm Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. While improvement is not complete, the cosmetic result is far superior to that of dermabrasion.
Alopecia areata, nails. Pitting in organized transverse rows giving the nail a "hammered brass" appearance.
Most sunburns cause mild pain and redness but affect only the outer layer of skin (first-degree burn). The red skin might hurt when you touch it.
Ingrown nails -- when the nail grows into the flesh instead of over it -- usually affect the toenails, particularly the big toe.
Spider veins, prior to treatment with sclerotherapy.
Unnatural “pluggy” hairline using 10–25 hair grafts. Should never happen in 21st century.
The cluster of blisters that form with shingles fill with fluid, pop, then start to ooze. Eventually the affected areas crust over and heal like the rash shown here.
A sunburn is skin damage from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most sunburns cause mild pain and redness but affect only the outer layer of skin (first-degree burn).
