SSD Benefits for Those Suffering With Skin Diseases in New Jersey
Skin disorders, diseases and conditions can be documented by blood work, tests, biopsies and evaluation by specialists such as dermatologists. Skin conditions may be found disabling when they interfere with the movement of joints, such as connective tissue diseases. Others may interfere with the use of both hands, such as contact dermatitis, skin lesions on the feet, or diabetic skin ulcerations which may interfere with the ability to walk. Or other skin conditions which cause severe rashes or discharge and may make it difficult to wear clothes or put on shoes may also be considered disabling.
The symptoms secondary to skin conditions such as pain, itching and burning, may also interfere with the ability to work. Skin conditions may be related to other conditions, diseases or disorders involving multiple body systems. There are hundreds of skin conditions. Some skin conditions may cause disfigurement or deformity affecting sight, hearing, speech or the ability to chew and may be evaluated as an impairment of the special senses. Still, other skin or facial disfigurements may also cause emotional disabilities.
