Can I get Disability for a Painful Skin Condition?

Social Security disability benefits are a definite possibility for individuals with painful and debilitating skin conditions, including burns. Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluators and judges will grant disability benefits to individuals who can demonstrate the medical criteria of one of the skin conditions listed in what is known as the SSA "blue book". Skin conditions listed here include ichthyosis, bullous disease, chronic infection of the skin or mucous membranes, dermatitis, hidradenitis suppurative, genetic photosensitive disorders, and burns. Even if the "blue book" criteria is not met, the SSA will grant disability benefits to individuals who are otherwise eligible for benefits and can show that they are unable work due to their skin issues

Cirrhosis, liver failure, and disability benefits

Per John Hopkins Medicine, cirrhosis of the liver occurs when scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue. This process stops the liver from working normally and the damage to your liver builds up over time. Although many people might associate cirrhosis with alcohol consumption, cirrhosis can also be caused by hepatitis and other viruses, autoimmune disorder, blocked or damaged bile ducts, certain medications and chemicals, parasite infections, episodes of heart failure with blood build up in the liver, certain diseases passed from parent to child, as well as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Symptoms may include fluid buildup, vomiting blood, muscle loss, low energy and weakness, and even confusion, among other symptoms (Source: John Hopkins Medicine).
