These skin conditions can either be minor or serious injuries and illnesses. Some of these conditions can be brought about by an accident, whereas some are the result of illnesses. It is also possible for some products, such as makeup, to cause allergic reactions or to trigger injuries in sensitive skin. Any kind of skin injury or skin disease can be extremely problematic for a range of reasons. For example, some can cause long-term damage to your skin, resulting in cosmetic problems. They can also be painful, irritating and uncomfortable.
Many kinds of skin disease can cause your immune system to weaken. This can cause you to be more vulnerable to other illnesses. Similarly, a skin injury could become infected, which can lead to a variety of health concerns.

How Much Compensation Can I Get for Skin Injury / Skin Disease Claims?
The amount of compensation that you could receive for your skin injury will depend on a range of factors. The kind of skin injury or skin disease that you develop, in addition to the severity of your symptoms, are the largest decider of the compensation amounts you can receive. You will also be able to claim for the pain and suffering that you’ve been forced to undergo.
You will also be able to claim if the skin condition you’ve developed has caused you to lose any wages or limit your potential wages in the future. This amount is likely to be great if you are involved in an industry in which your appearance is important, such as acting, performance or modelling. The amount of compensation that you could claim for will depend on the severity of your illness or injury.

Contact dermatitis is one of the most common kinds of facial and hand skin injuries in the UK. It is a kind of eczema brought on by contact with harmful substances. The symptoms can include:
- Skin Reddening.

Cold sores are small blisters which can appear on the lips or around the mouth. They are very contagious and can be quite painful. These sores will normally clear up themselves within a couple of weeks but can occasionally last for longer.
Impetigo is an extremely contagious skin infection which can cause a range of sores and blisters. This skin disease can be spread very easily. It can be painful, irritating and weaken your immune system, leaving you vulnerable to other illnesses and infections.
A long-term health condition which causes white patches to appear across your body, vitiligo can be itchy but is mainly harmless. The biggest problem with vitiligo is the cosmetic appearance it can cause, which can cause psychological problems in sufferers.
A contagious fungal infection, ringworm can make your skin dry, irritable and swollen. This infection can cause permanent minor scarring and damage to your skin. As such, it needs to be treated with effective antifungal medicine within a few days of becoming visible.
There are many different causes of skin conditions in the UK. Some of the most common causes include:
- Accidents and Injury, including Assault and Accidents at Work.
- Pre-Existing Genetic Conditions and Weaknesses.

Skin injury and skin disease will not cause psychological or mental problems. However, if these conditions are visible, they can make you feel self-conscious. They can make you more nervous, less confident and have a range of other serious health problems.
Skin injuries and diseases can lead to both anxiety and depression. Being embarrassed, ashamed or nervous over the appearance of your skin is a common problem for people with these conditions. If the effects are permanent, you can easily fall into depression.
There are many ways for skin conditions to be treated. This will depend on the type of damage (injury or infection) and the location of the condition. Some of the most common treatments include:
- Antibiotic/Antifungal Cream.

There are some skin conditions which can be so painful, uncomfortable or visible that they can count as disabilities. Your condition will have to be severe to count as a disability. You will have to ask your healthcare professional for more information.
