Psoriasis is a medical condition in which skin cells die and build up rapidly. Psoriasis creates blotchy, flaky patches on your skin that may itch or feel painful. It can occur anywhere on the body, including on the face. If you have psoriasis on your face, you will want to treat it carefully, as the skin on your face is very sensitive. Depending on how severe your psoriasis is, you may wish to use topical treatments, phototherapy (or light therapy), systemic medications, or a combination of several treatments. There is also some evidence that lifestyle changes can reduce psoriasis symptoms.

It is widely suspected that the anaerobic bacterial species Propionibacterium acnes ( P. acnes ) contributes to the development of acne, but its exact role is not well understood. [2] There are specific sub-strains of P. acnes associated with normal skin, and moderate or severe inflammatory acne. [48] It is unclear whether these undesirable strains evolve on-site or are acquired, or possibly both depending on the person. These strains have the capability of changing, perpetuating, or adapting to the abnormal cycle of inflammation, oil production, and inadequate sloughing of dead skin cells from acne pores. Infection with the parasitic mite Demodex is associated with the development of acne. [28] [49] It is unclear whether eradication of the mite improves acne. [49]
