Identify Rashes, Eczema and More

Medically Reviewed by Stephanie S. Gardner, MD on April 26, 2022

Is your skin itchy, broken out, or covered in a rash or strange spots? Skin inflammation, changes in texture or color, and spots may result from infection, a chronic skin condition, or contact with an allergen or irritant. If you think you have one of these common adult skin problems, have your doctor check it out. Most are minor, but others can signal something more serious.

A rash of raised dots that turns into painful blisters, shingles causes your skin to burn, itch, tingle, or become very sensitive. Shingles often shows up on your trunk and buttocks, but can appear anywhere. An outbreak lasts about two weeks. You’ll recover, but pain, numbness, and itching might linger for months, years, or even the rest of your life. Treatment includes creams for your skin, antiviral drugs, steroids, and even antidepressants. It’s important to be treated early to help prevent complications.

Hives look like welts and can itch, sting or burn. They vary in size and sometimes join together. They may appear on any part of you and last anywhere from minutes to days. Causes include extreme temperatures, infections like strep throat, and allergies to medications, foods, and food additives. Antihistamines and skin creams can help.

Thick, red patches of skin covered with white or silvery scales are signs of psoriasis. Doctors know how psoriasis works — your immune system triggers new skin cells to grow too quickly — but they don’t know what causes it.  The patches typically show up on your scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. They can heal and come back throughout your life.  Treatments include creams and ointments for your skin, light therapy, and medications taken by mouth, injection, or IV.

Eczema is a blanket term for several non-contagious conditions that cause inflamed, red, dry, and itchy skin. Doctors aren’t sure what makes eczema start in the first place, but they do know that stress, irritants (like soaps), allergens, and climate can trigger flares. In adults, it often appears on the elbows, hands, and in skin folds. Several medications treat eczema. Some are spread over the skin, and others are taken by mouth or as a shot.

A tendency to flush easily, followed by redness on your nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead could be rosacea. It can get redder over time with blood vessels you can see. You may have thickened skin, bumps, and pus-filled pimples. It could even affect your eyes. Medications taken by mouth or spread on the skin are available. Doctors can treat broken blood vessels and red or thickened skin with lasers.

The herpes simplex virus causes small, painful, fluid-filled blisters on your mouth or nose. Cold sores last about 10 days and easily spread from person to person. Triggers include fever, too much sun, stress, and hormonal changes like periods. You can treat cold sores with antiviral pills or creams. Call your doctor if the sores contain pus, the redness spreads, you have a fever, or if your eyes become irritated. These can be treated with prescription pills or creams.

Contact with the oily coating from poison ivy, oak, or sumac causes a rash in many people. It begins with redness and swelling at the site, and then becomes itchy. Blisters usually show up within 12 to 72 hours after you touch the plant. A typical rash looks like a red line, the result of the plant dragging across your skin. An outbreak usually lasts up to 2 weeks. Treatment can include medicine spread on the skin or taken by mouth.

Prescription or over-the-counter medication can help soothe the itch. Try cool compresses and oatmeal baths, too. Your doctor may prescribe medication for a severe rash and antibiotics for an infection. Learn to spot these plants so you can avoid direct contact. In general, poison oak grows west of the Rockies; poison ivy to the east.


Pseudofolliculitis barbae occurs when hair follicles become inflamed because of shaving. It most often occurs on the face and neck but can happen anywhere that you shave or pluck. Also known as “razor bumps” or “shaving bumps,” the irritation can cause pimples, and even scars. You can minimize the problem with by taking a hot shower or applying a hot towel before you shave. Use shaving cream or foam and pull the blade in the direction your hair grows. Rinse with cold water and apply moisturizer.

This small flap of flesh-colored or slightly darker tissue hangs off your skin by a stalk. They’re usually found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Skin tags appear most often on women and elderly people. They aren’t dangerous and usually don’t cause pain unless they become irritated when clothing or nearby skin rubs against them. A doctor can cut, freeze, or burn them off.

Acne breaks out when a pore clogged with oil and dead skin cells gets inflamed. Pores that stay open and turn dark are called blackheads; completely blocked pores are known as whiteheads. Bacteria and hormones trigger acne, which most often shows up on your face, chest, and back. You can also get pus-filled pimples and cysts. To help control acne, keep oily areas clean and don’t squeeze (this may cause infection and scars). 

This fungal skin infection causes your feet to peel, turn red, itch, and burn. You may also get blisters and sores. Athlete’s foot is contagious and passed through direct contact. To prevent it, don’t share shoes with an infected person or walk barefoot in areas like locker rooms or near pools. Treat it with topical antifungal lotions. A doctor can prescribe medications for more severe cases. During treatment, you’ll need to keep your feet and the insides of your shoes clean and dry.

Moles, which are usually brown or black, can be anywhere on the body. They might show up alone or in groups and generally appear before age 20. Some moles change slowly over the years. They can go from flat to raised, grow hair, or change color. Get your moles checked once a year by a dermatologist. See your doctor right away for any that change, have irregular borders, are an unusual or uneven color, bleed, or itch.  

These pesky brown or gray spots aren’t really caused by aging, though they do become more common as you get older. You get them from exposure to sunlight, which is why they tend to appear on your face, hands, and arms. You can try bleach creams, acid peels, and light-based treatments to fade them. See a dermatologist to rule out serious problems like melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

A harmless rash, pityriasis rosea usually begins as a single scaly, pink patch with a raised border. Days to weeks later, it starts to itch and spread. The rash may be in the shape of a Christmas tree spread across your body. Doctors don’t know for sure what causes it, but they don’t think it’s contagious. It often goes away in 6 to 8 weeks without treatment. Pityriasis rosea most often shows up between the ages of 10 and 35.

Melasma (chloasma) is tan or brown patches on your cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. It’s often called the “pregnancy mask” because it happens in half of all pregnant women. Men can get it, too. If it doesn’t go away on its own after the baby comes, you can treat it with prescription creams, over-the-counter products, or with laser treatments. Sunlight makes it worse, so always use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen.

In most cases, common warts appear on the fingers or hands. They’re caused by the human papillomavirus. Warts spread when you touch something used by a person with the virus. To prevent more warts, cover them with bandages, keep them dry, and don’t pick them. They’re usually harmless and painless. You can treat them with topical medications, or a doctor can freeze or burn them off. More advanced removal techniques include surgery, lasers, and chemicals.

Seborrheic keratoses are noncancerous growths that often show up as you age. They can appear on many areas of the skin either alone or in groups. They may be dark or multicolored, and they usually have a grainy surface, though they can be smooth and waxy. You don’t need to treat them unless they get irritated or you don’t like the way they look. They’re easy to mistake for moles or skin cancer, but a dermatologist can tell the difference.

Pictures of 15 Uncommon Skin Conditions

Medically Reviewed by Stephanie S. Gardner, MD on April 26, 2022

It’s like having lifelong sunburn, where you can pull up a sheet of the top layer of skin. It doesn’t hurt, but your skin often itches and can get red, dry, thick, and blistered. Because it’s genetic, this usually starts happening when you’re quite young. Petroleum jelly, to soften skin, and medicines you put on warts and calluses might make it feel and look better, but other typical skin treatments don’t help and could even be harmful.

Apocrine chromhidrosis is a rare chronic condition involving the apocrine sweat glands, causing sweat to have color. Colors range from brown, to yellow, blue or green, and even black. The condition is benign but can affect the skin of the trunk, face, and scalp.

Small, raised, red spots — usually on your shins — slowly grow into larger, flatter patches. These have a red border and a shiny, yellowish center, and they probably won’t go away. The skin is thin and may split easily to form slow-healing sores called ulcers that might lead to skin cancer. People who get this condition likely have diabetes or will have it soon. Your doctor may wait on treatment if you don’t have ulcers yet.

Babies with the disease may be born with red, blistered, raw-looking skin that’s thick in places, injures easily, and gets inflamed. Thick, hard scales form in rows on the skin — especially around creases of joints. A genetic test can tell for sure if you have the disease, which gets its name from the Greek word for “fish.” Treatment isn’t easy. Removing the scales often leaves skin fragile and prone to infection.

It feels like something is crawling on, stinging, or biting you. Some people report tiny fibers on their skin and problems with memory, mood, and concentration. Though certain studies suggest a possible link to infection, many scientists believe it’s a mental health issue. You might have the mistaken belief that you’re “infested.” Your doctor will try to rule out other causes and may suggest therapy.

People with this have changes (mutations) in their genes that make it hard for their body to process a light-sensitive chemical called protoporphyrin. It builds up in the top layers of skin and reacts to light from the sun as well as other sources. Your skin might tingle, itch, or burn If you don’t cover up, it may blister and hurt intensely. Drugs, a type of vitamin A, and iron might help.

A slowdown of your skin’s natural shedding causes a buildup of a protein called keratin that leads to dry skin, a flaky scalp, small fish-like scales (especially on your elbows and lower legs), and deep, painful cracks. Your skin may get darker, too. Ichthyosis vulgaris may be passed down from a parent or be related to an illness like cancer, thyroid disease, or HIV or AIDS. Living in a warm, humid place tends to make it better.

It can be alarming when these uneven, wart-like, waxy bumps suddenly show up on your skin, but they’re not an infection, and they’re not contagious. They’re fatty deposits of cholesterol caused by very high levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in your blood. The bumps will usually clear up a few weeks after you start taking medicine and change your diet.

People who aren’t naturally immune (most of us are) might get it from someone else — or from handling an armadillo. Symptoms can take years to show up. Look for a rash or reddish spots, with swollen skin, and numbness in that spot or in a finger or toe. Your eyes could get very sensitive to light. Antibiotics usually cure it, and you should recover fully if you don’t wait too long to treat it.

It usually starts before age 4 with a scaly rash on your trunk, arms, or legs, sometimes with hard bumps you can feel under your skin. This genetic disease makes your immune system overreact with too much inflammation. Many people with it also have arthritis and eye problems, and some get kidney disease. If neither of your parents have it, you may have a version called early-onset sarcoidosis.

The bluish-gray skin color comes from tiny bits of silver that build up in your tissues. Colloidal silver, which some people take as a dietary supplement, can cause it, and it’s usually permanent. Sunshine might make things worse. There’s no evidence colloidal silver has any health benefits, and it may also slow absorption of medicines like thyroxine and antibiotics.

Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare inherited condition in which your body isn’t able to repair itself from damage done by ultraviolet rays, including those from light bulbs. Any exposed skin including the eyes and tissues around the eyes are susceptible. Most people who have XP show symptoms before the age of ten, but early warning signs are freckles and dark spots before the age of two. This condition means you are at high risk for developing skin cancer including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. They also are at risk for cancer of the eye and surrounding tissues.

You may try to scrub off these dark, thick, velvety patches of skin, especially if they itch and smell bad. But it won’t work. Elbows, knees, knuckles, and armpits are typical places to get them. The condition won’t hurt you, but it can be a sign of other problems like obesity, diabetes, hormone problems, a drug reaction, or even cancer. Talk to your doctor.

In some spots, your body may make too much elastin, a protein that gives skin strength and flexibility. Your skin won’t spring back when stretched, and it sags and folds. It’s not clear why this happens. You usually see it in the neck, arms, or legs — especially around elbows and knees. Your doctor may cut away the loose skin, but the condition often returns.

This group of conditions is related by an abnormal protein called amyloid that builds up in your skin. Lichen amyloidosis is typically on your shins, thighs, feet, and forearms. It’s itchy and looks like reddish-brown raised spots. Macular amyloidosis usually shows up between your shoulder blades or on your chest, with flat, dusty-colored patches. Nodular amyloidosis may appear on your body and face as firm, reddish bumps that don’t itch.

    Skin diseases can be prevented by following simple skin care recommendations and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is important to know your skin type and choose beauty and hygiene products that suit your needs.

    The main signs of skin diseases

    The skin is our first line of defense against external influences, so its health is an important indicator of the general condition of the body. The skin can be subject to various diseases that can manifest themselves in different ways. The main signs of skin diseases may include:

    • Redness of the skin;
    • Shortness of breath;
    • Itching and burning sensation;
    • Eruptions on the skin, which may or may not be prominent;
    • Skin edema;
    • Dehydration and peeling of the skin;
    • Dandruff and dryness;
    • Cracking;
    • Skin thickening;
    • Change in skin color (from pallor to hyperpigmentation).

    If you notice these signs or sensations on your skin, you should consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. Self-medication of skin diseases can lead to aggravation of symptoms and complication of the condition.

    Common types of skin diseases in adults

    The skin is the largest organ of our body and, unfortunately, is subject to many diseases. Adults may experience various skin problems such as:

    • Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in adults. It is caused by oil and dirt blocking pores, as well as changes in hormonal balance.
    • Allergic skin reactions can be caused by a variety of allergens, including cosmetics, food, or clothing fabrics.
    • Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that manifests itself as red redness and rashes on the face.
    • Neurodermatitis is an allergic disease that manifests itself in the form of dry skin, itching and rashes.
    • Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that appears as red or silvery scaly patches on the skin.
    • Contact dermatitis is an allergic disease that develops as a result of contact with various objects such as metals, rubber, cosmetics, etc.

    If you have any skin problems, it is recommended to consult a dermatologist who will help determine the cause of the disease and prescribe an effective treatment.

    Acne is a common cause of skin problems

    Acne is a common skin disease that can affect any adult. It causes complex pimples, blisters, and cysts on the skin, and can also lead to infection.

    Excessive consumption of fatty foods, stress, hormonal imbalance, use of poor quality cosmetics can also cause acne.

    Acne can be treated with both medications and alternative methods. An important role is played by preventive measures that are aimed at reducing the amount of fatty foods in the diet, monitoring the condition of the skin, and using high-quality cosmetics.

    • Medications for acne treatment: antibiotics, retinoids, dietary supplements, vitamins
    • Folk remedies for acne treatment: masks based on clay, chamomile, yarrow, aloe, mixtures of essential oils
    • Preventive measures: skin control, skin care, use of high quality cosmetics, proper nutrition, no stress

    Allergic dermatitis – a typical skin disease

    Allergic dermatitis is one of the most common skin diseases. It occurs in response to the wrong response of the immune system to substances that it mistakenly perceives as a threat. As a rule, it can be some food, pets, pollen, drugs, chemicals and many other factors.

    Treatment of allergic dermatitis depends on which factor is causing the allergic reaction. It is recommended to avoid contact with allergens that cause symptoms, and to use medications to relieve itching and inflammation.

    • The classic example of allergic dermatitis is contact dermatitis. It results from direct skin contact with a substance such as metal jewelry, cosmetics, soap, or plants.
    • Atopic dermatitis is another form of allergic dermatitis. It occurs in people with a hereditary predisposition to allergic reactions to various substances. Symptoms may appear on the arms, legs, neck, elbows, and knees.

    In general, allergic dermatitis is not a serious condition, but can be uncomfortable and impair quality of life if not controlled. Therefore, it is important to seek medical help if allergic dermatitis is suspected and follow the doctor’s recommendations.

    Psoriasis is a complex skin disease

    Psoriasis is a chronic non-infectious skin disease that manifests itself in the form of various rashes. Although psoriasis is not life threatening, it is very noticeable and can be very annoying.

    There are several types of psoriasis, including plank, bristle, droplet, etc. Each of them has its own characteristic symptoms and location on the body.

    Treating psoriasis can be a complex and lengthy process. Doctors use a variety of methods, including medications, creams, and physical treatments, depending on the severity of the condition and the individual patient’s condition.

    If you find symptoms of psoriasis on your skin, you should consult a dermatologist for professional help and appropriate treatment.

    Rosacea is a chronic skin condition

    Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that usually appears on the face as red granules, vesicles and patches. This disease can manifest itself among adults aged 30-50 years, especially in women.

    In rosacea, the skin becomes enlarged and produces excessive oil. This can lead to papules and pustules, sometimes with dilated blood vessels underneath.

    Symptoms of rosacea may include redness and tenderness of the skin, facial patches, vesicles, papules, and red nose and cheeks.

    In middle-aged women, rosacea may be associated with hormonal changes, especially the transition to menopause.

    Topical medications such as coloring creams or gels, ointments, and oral antibiotics may be used to treat rosacea. Important recommendations for patients with rosacea are to avoid the abuse of alcohol, smoking and various spicy foods.

    Eczema is a very annoying disease

    Eczema is a chronic skin disease characterized by various symptoms. It usually manifests itself in the form of itching, redness of the skin and the formation of blisters. Often there is also peeling and crusting of the skin.

    Eczema can occur anywhere on the body, but the hands, feet and face are most commonly affected. In people with this disease, the skin is very sensitive and requires special care.

    The main cause of eczema is a dysfunction of the immune system. Its violation can be caused by both internal factors (for example, disruption of the thyroid gland) and external factors (contact with chemicals, repeated rubbing of the skin, and other factors).

    Treatment for eczema depends on the cause. Ointments and creams are usually used, which have a beneficial effect on the condition of the skin. It is also important to avoid contact with allergens, which can aggravate the symptoms of the disease.

    Seborrheic dermatitis – a condition of the scalp and face

    Seborrheic dermatitis is a condition that most commonly affects the scalp, but can also appear on the face, chest, back, groin, and other areas where the skin contains oil glands. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic disease that can appear intermittently.

    Symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis include:

    • Reddish patches on the skin
    • Yellow or white scales on the surface of the skin
    • Burning, stiff and itchy sensation
    • Heavy oily discharge

    Seborrheic dermatitis can have a variety of causes, including hormonal changes, stress, certain diets or medications, genetic factors, and others. Treatment for seborrheic dermatitis may include the use of medications, treatments with shampoos and creams, lifestyle changes, and dietary changes.

    It is important to pay attention to the symptoms and seek immediate medical attention for proper diagnosis and treatment, as seborrheic dermatitis can lead to other skin conditions and conditions such as infections, psoriasis, and even cosmetic problems that can affect quality of life.

    Turmeric and other natural remedies for skin problems

    Turmeric is an excellent natural remedy for skin problems. Its active ingredient, curcumin, has a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. Therefore, turmeric is widely used to treat eczema, psoriasis, acne, and other skin conditions.

    Other natural remedies for skin conditions include aloe vera, which also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. It can be used to relieve irritation, inflammation, dryness and itching.

    Another effective natural remedy is coconut oil, which has moisturizing and antimicrobial properties. It can be used to treat various skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.

    In general, the use of natural products for the treatment of skin conditions can be an effective and safe approach. However, before using any drug, especially a new one, it is always best to check with your doctor to make sure it is safe.

    Should you see a dermatologist if you have skin conditions?

    Answer: Yes, it should. Skin conditions can be caused by various causes such as allergies, infections, hormonal changes, or other medical conditions. For this reason, a dermatologist is a specialist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions.

    If you suspect a skin disease, the first thing you should do is watch for symptoms and skin changes. If the symptoms do not disappear on their own, but worsen, then you need to consult a dermatologist. The dermatologist will examine and diagnose your condition, and then recommend the best course of treatment or prescribe the necessary procedures.
