Other environmental materials may cause a bacterial infection that can include burns, hair loss and changes in skin color. Climate change, where extreme hot or cold temperatures are experienced. can have its own effect on the skin. Extreme heat can cause perspiration blockages which lead to blisters and heat rashes. Extreme cold and dry weather can cause skin to dry out and flake; in certain cases, frost bite may even occur.
