How good is tea tree oil to heal skin ailments or diseases?

Tea tree oil is obtained from the melaleuca alternifolia tree native to Australia. Possibly its use has not grown more because traditional doctors either do not know it or because the pharmacy industry doesn´t care for it and doctors usually do not recommend
products or medicines out of the stablishment.

Anyway is useful to people that good natural products get more known. So if you have good experience with this oil let all us know about it

Are there any diseases related to having pale skin?

I am almost the color of, well, white in general. I am fine with it, but I was wondering if it is a disease or something so.

Psoriasis (if it is spelled that way) runs in my family. I was hoping someone could tell me if there are any diseases related to pale skin. Thank you!! :)
