What are Some Common Skin Conditions That Veterans Face?

Video Transcript

Veterans are prone to conditions like dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer, hives and autoimmune disorders that cause skin conditions and burns. Similar to breathing conditions, toxic substances are known to cause many skin irritations and conditions, and veterans are at an increased risk of being exposed to them. Things like burn pits and herbicides like Agent Orange can affect the skin. Also, traumatic injuries can cause severe scars or burns on service members, which also qualify for VA disability benefits.
