    Medical Reference Related to Skin Problems & Treatments

    1. Iododerma and Bromoderma

      Iododerma and bromoderma. Iodides and bromides are drugs that can cause severe adverse cutaneous reactions, and of these, the worst are acneiform, furuncular, carbuncular, chancriform, pyodermatous, or granulomatous. Iodides and bromides are widely distributed, not only in foods and in the environment but also in proprietary and formally prescribed medicaments. These figures are of still relatively minor consequences of adverse reactions from the two halides, of which bromides are usually worse than iodides. Lesions like those of acne or folliculitis caused by an iodide are shown.

    2. Herpes Zoster

      Herpes zoster. Grouped vesicles on an erythematous base in a dermatomal distribution on the hip of an infant.

    3. Dysplastic Nevi (Atypical Moles)

      Dysplastic nevi are moles that are larger than average (larger than a pencil eraser) and irregular in shape. They tend to have uneven color with dark brown centers and lighter, uneven edges.

    4. Moles

      Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups.

    5. Erythema Infectiosum

      Erythema infectiosum (fifth disease). Erythema infectiosum is a mild childhood disease that is caused by human parvovirus B19. This condition develops after a mean incubation period of 14 days. There are few if any prodromal symptoms. The rash evolves in three clinical stages. The first stage is characterized by the abrupt appearance of a bright-red malar blush. The appearance is so startling that it has been given the suggestive description of “slapped cheeks”. During the second stage, the facial rash begins to fade, and a maculopapular, urticarial, or morbilliform exanthem develops on the extremities and trunk. Pruritus may be present.

    6. Hand Foot Mouth Disease on Foot

      Hand-foot-mouth disease. This common and benign viral disease of childhood is usually caused by the A16 strain of coxsackievirus, although other strains of the same virus have been implicated. It most often occurs in late summer and early fall. The prodrome consists of low-grade fever and malaise. Shortly thereafter, vesicular lesions arise on the soft palate, tongue, buccal mucosa, and uvula. The lips are usually spared. Occasionally, these lesions may be painful and cause some difficulty in eating. The cutaneous lesions develop 1 or 2 days after those in the mouth. They consist of asymptomatic round or oval vesiculopustules that evolve into superficial erosions. The edges of the palms and soles are a favored location.

    7. Junctional Nevus

      Junctional nevus. Two uniformly brown small macules, round in shape with smooth regular borders.

    8. Dysplastic Nevi (Atypical Moles) Close-Up

      Dysplastic nevi are moles that are larger than average (larger than a pencil eraser) and irregular in shape. They tend to have uneven color with dark brown centers and lighter, uneven edges.

    9. Histoplasmosis

      Histoplasmosis, disseminated. Scattered erythematous papules and pustules in an HIV-infected individual with disseminated histoplasmosis.

    10. Infectious Mononucleosis

      Infectious mononucleosis. Marked white exudate on the tonsils of a child with infectious mononucleosis.
