Medical Reference Related to Skin Problems & Treatments

  1. Varicella-Zoster Virus Infection on Chest Wall

    Varicella-zoster virus infection: herpes zoster in T8 to T10 dermatomes. Typical grouped vesicles and pustules with erythema and edema of three contiguous thoracic dermatomes on the posterior chest wall.

  2. Spider Angioma

    Spider angioma. Vascular papule with radiating arterioles on the cheek of a child.

  3. 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.

  4. Sweet's Syndrome

    Sweet's syndrome. Erythematous plaques and nodules with central bullous changes on a child's knee.

  5. 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.

  6. Seabather's Itch

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

  7. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Systemic lupus erythematosus. Erythematous, edematous plaques in a "butterfly distribution on the face" on the face.

  8. 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.

  9. Xerosis

    Xerosis. The accentuation of skin markings and fine scale illustrated here are typical of xerosis. The tendency toward dry skin tends to be inherited and is more common in families with a history of atopy. Low humidity, usually related to dry heat during the winter months, is an aggravating factor. Treatment of xerosis is aimed at rehydrating the stratum corneum. Emollients containing urea or alpha-hydroxy acids are particularly effective. Excessive bathing and the use of alkaline soaps must be avoided.

  10. Serum Sickness

    Serum sickness. Urticarial, coalescing plaques on the lower legs of an adolescent with serum sickness.
