Acne is a common skin disease characterized by pimples on the face, chest, and back. It occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.

This painful viral infection is caused by herpes zoster, the virus that causes chickenpox. After infection with chickenpox, the virus “hides” in the nervous system in a latent or dormant state. Exposure to chickenpox or other stressors may cause a reactivation of the virus, resulting in a shingles outbreak. People over the age of 50 are most likely to suffer from shingles.

Hemangioma is a congenital vascular malformation consisting of a benign tumor made up of newly formed blood vessels clustered together; it may be present at birth in various parts of the body, including the liver and bones. In the majority of cases it appears as a network of small blood-filled capillaries near the surface of the skin, forming a reddish or purplish birthmark.
cavernous hemangioma a congenital vascular malformation that has a soft, spongy consistency and may contain a large amount of blood. It usually appears during the first few postnatal weeks and disappears by the age of 9 years. The most common sites are head, neck, and viscera such as the liver, spleen, or pancreas. Treatment varies according to the size of the lesion.
strawberry hemangioma a circumscribed capillary hemangioma, which may be present at birth or may appear soon after birth. These are most common on the head, neck, and trunk and appear as small macules that develop into raised purplish-red lobulated tumors. Most involute by age 2 to 3.

Skin Cancer

Cancer that forms in the tissues of the skin. There are several types of skin cancer. They are due to the development of abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are three main types: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma.
Basal cell carcinoma: Cancer that begins in the lower part of the epidermis. It may appear as a small white or flesh-colored bump that grows slowly and may bleed. Basal cell carcinomas are usually found on areas of the body exposed to the sun. Basal cell carcinomas rarely spread to other parts of the body. They are the most common form of skin cancer. Also called basal cell cancer.
Squamous cell carcinoma: Cancer that begins in squamous cells. Squamous cells are thin, flat cells that look like fish scales, and are found in the tissue that forms the surface of the skin, the lining of the hollow organs of the body, and the lining of the respiratory and digestive tracts. Most cancers of the anus, cervix, head and neck, and vagina are squamous cell carcinomas. Also called epidermoid carcinoma.
Melanoma: A form of cancer that begins in melanocytes (cells that make the pigment melanin). It may begin in a mole (skin melanoma), but can also begin in other pigmented tissues, such as in the eye or in the intestines.

Mouth Ulcers

A mouth ulcer or oral ulcer, mucosal ulcer is an ulcer that occurs on the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. Mouth ulcers are very common, occurring in association with many diseases and by many different mechanisms. They are usually white, red, yellow or grey in colour and are inflamed around the edge. Although mouth ulcers can be uncomfortable, especially when you eat, drink or brush your teeth, they are usually harmless.

A chronic skin disease that causes persistent redness over the areas of the face and nose that normally blush. mainly the forehead, the chin, and the lower half of the nose. The tiny blood vessels in these areas enlarge (dilate) and become more visible through the skin, appearing like tiny red lines (telangiectasias). Pimples that look like teenage acne can occur. Rosacea occurs most often between the ages of 30 and 60, especially in people with fair skin. It affects both sexes.

Rubeola (measles) is an infection caused by a virus that grows in the cells lining the throat and lungs. Rubeola has a distinct rash that helps aid in the diagnosis. Measles is spread from one child to another through direct contact with discharge from the nose and throat. Sometimes, it is spread through airborne droplets from an infected child. This is a very contagious disease that usually consists of a fever, and cough, followed by a generalized rash.

Lentigo Maligna

Lentigo maligna is similar to the superficial spreading type, as it also remains close to the skin surface for quite a while, and usually appears as a flat or mildly elevated mottled tan, brown or dark brown discoloration. This type of in situ melanoma is found most often in the elderly, arising on chronically sun-exposed, damaged skin on the face, ears, arms and upper trunk.

Cutaneous Melanoma

Melanoma that occurs on the skin, called cutaneous melanoma, is the most common type of melanoma. This type of melanoma occurs in all parts of the skin, including the soles of feet, on the palms of the hand, in between toes and fingers, and underneath the finger and toe nails.

Herpetic Whitlow

Herpetic whitlow is a viral infection of the hand caused by the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) or herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2). It causes swelling, redness, and tenderness of the skin that may be associated with blisters. An outbreak typically lasts between 2 and 3 weeks. Prompt treatment with antiviral medication such as valacyclovir (Valtrex), acyclovir (Zovirax), or famciclovir (Famvir), may reduce the length and severity of an infection. It is important to keep the infected area covered. Contact with the lesion may result in new sores or passing the virus on to others.

Latex Allergy

Latex allergy usually develops after repeated exposure to latex products, including balloons or medical gloves. Symptoms may include hives, itching or a stuffy or runny nose. Some people may experience asthma symptoms, such as wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing.Symptoms begin within minutes of exposure to latex products; direct physical contact isn’t needed to trigger an allergic reaction.

Malignant melanoma is a type of cancer arising from the melanocyte cells of the skin. Melanocytes are cells in the skin that produce a pigment called melanin. Malignant melanoma develops when the melanocytes no longer respond to normal control mechanisms of cellular growth.

Morgellons disease is a delusional disorder that leads to the belief that one has parasites or foreign material moving in, or coming out of, the skin. Morgellons disease is a little-known disorder that is often associated with nonspecific skin, nerve, and psychiatric symptoms. People with this disorder seem to be more likely to develop low thyroid functioning (hypothyroidism).
