Fast Five quiz: Common Skin Conditions
Skin conditions are among the more frequent reasons for patients to seek care. A recent review found that nearly 85 million Americans were seen by a physician for a skin condition in 2013 alone, leading to a direct healthcare cost of $75 billion. That same year, skin conditions contributed 1.79% to the global burden of disease and were the fourth leading cause of disability. Dermatitis (atopic, contact, and seborrheic) represented the highest disease burden, followed by acne, psoriasis, and urticaria.
