Allergic contact dermatitis can be difficult to distinguish from other rashes, especially after it been present for a while.
Allergic contact dermatitis is responsible for approximately half of all contact dermatitis cases.
Acne is the term for plugged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and even deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and even the upper arms. However, the disease is not restricted to any age group; adults in their 20’s and even well beyond their 40’s can get acne.
While not a life threatening condition, acne can be upsetting and disfiguring. Green uses the newest techniques, medicines, chemical peels, lasers, and light treatments to treat acne and its effects. When the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out, it’s called alopecia areata. Androgenetic alopecia, on the other hand, is a kind of hair loss that’s inherited. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called female diffuse hair loss.

In people with eczema, the inflammatory response to irritating substances overacts, causing itching and scratching.
Dysplastic nevus, also referred to as atypical nevus or Clark’s nevus, is an acquired mole that may appear as solitary or multiple lesions.
