Medical Reference Related to Skin Problems & Treatments

  1. Male Pattern Baldness

    The male pattern baldness (MPB) form of androgenetic alopecia (there is also a female pattern baldness) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men.

  2. Phytophotodermatitis

  3. Phototoxic Drug Reaction

    Phototoxic drug reaction. Intense sun sensitivity induced by tetracycline in a young girl who subsequently went to a tanning booth despite precaution.

  4. Nickel Contact Dermatitis

    Nickel contact dermatitis. The development of an itchy eczematous eruption near the umbilicus is virtually pathognomonic for contact dermatitis to nickel. The source is the small metal snap in the blue jeans or the metal belt buckle. The simultaneous occurrence of an id reaction, sometimes with small lichenoid papules on the elbows and knees, is very common. Lesions can be treated effectively with topical corticosteroids, but the only cure results from strict avoidance of nickel. This is easier said than done. Parents must buy jeans without snaps or sew in a small piece of fabric to protect the underlying skin. Families should be reminded that wearing jeans with a metal snap for just several hours out of the month would reactivate the entire process. Children with contact dermatitis to nickel should also avoid metal jewelry and should be advised against ear piercing.

  5. Neurofibromatosis

    Neurofibromatosis, cafe au lait macule. Well-demarcated uniform brown macule on the buttock of a patient with neurofibromatosis.
