Your Healthy Skin is Our Priority
What is an Autoimmune Skin Disorder?
An autoimmune disease is when the immune system doesn’t function correctly and starts attacking the body. Under normal conditions, white blood cells act as strong defenders against other harmful cells and objects, such as infectious bacteria, viruses, and foreign materials when they invade the body.
If someone has an autoimmune disease, the opposite happens, and the body’s white blood cells begin attacking their own healthy tissues as if it was a virus or bacteria. This misguided attack causes many different symptoms that affect the body, including the skin.
Have you been experiencing symptoms you might believe are due to an autoimmune disorder? This type of disease can impact the skin in a number of ways, including troublesome rashes, painful blisters, scaly patches, and more.
