Medical Reference Related to Skin Problems & Treatments

  1. Strawberry Hemangiomas

    Strawberry hemangiomas (also called strawberry mark, nevus vascularis, capillary hemangioma, hemangioma simplex) may appear anywhere on the body, but are most common on the face, scalp, back, or chest.

  2. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Systemic lupus erythematosus. Image illustrates cutaneous involvement of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in the classic butterfly pattern on the face. This macular and intensely erythematous eruption is frequently aggravated by sun exposure and may flare with other symptoms of systemic disease.

  3. Trachyonychia

    Trachyonychia (twenty nail dystrophy of childhood). Any skin disease that affects the nail matrix may result in an abnormal nail plate. There are children, though, who only manifest dystrophy of the nail without any other cutaneous lesions, a condition that has been termed twenty nail dystrophy of childhood. The nails have a rough, sandpaper-like quality as well as longitudinal ridging and occasional splitting at the distal nail edge. Similar nail changes can be seen in lichen planus and alopecia areata. In many patients the condition spontaneously regresses.

  4. Salmon Patches

    Salmon patches (also called stork bites) appear on 30%-50% of newborn babies. These marks are small blood vessels (capillaries) that are visible through the skin.

  5. Skin Tags

    A skin tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. Skin tags are not dangerous.

  6. Seborrheic Keratosis

    Seborrheic keratoses are noncancerous (benign) skin growths that some people develop as they age. They often appear on the back or chest, but can occur on any part of the body.

  7. Transient Neonatal Pustular Melanosis

    Transient neonatal pustular melanosis. This is a benign neonatal dermatosis that is most common among African- American infants. The original lesion is a vesiculopustule, which may be present at birth. This small blister quickly ruptures and leaves a typical collarette of superficial scale processes. Tzanck smear of a pustule of erythema toxicum neonatorum will reveal numerous eosinophils but no multinucleated giant cells or bacteria. Occasionally, peripheral eosinophilia is also present. The cause of this condition is not known, and it resolves spontaneously within 10 days. No treatment is required.

  8. Seabather's Itch

    Seabather's itch. Erythematous papules on the unexposed areas of a swimmer.

  9. Warts

    After acne, warts are the most common dermatological complaint. Three out of four people will develop a wart (verruca vulgaris) at some time in their lives.

  10. Tuberous Sclerosis (Adenoma Sebaceum)

    Tuberous sclerosis, adenoma sebaceum. Small erythematous papules on the nose and cheeks of a child representing angiofibromata.
