Your Skin Diseases & Conditions Resource
We welcome you to the most comprehensive database of skin diseases, conditions and treatments on the web...
On the pages of this site you will find all of the information you'll ever need on skin problems ranging from the most minor allergic reactions to very serious diseases. Anything that manifests itself on the skin will be covered in full detail.
Wherever possible, we have included pictures so you can get a better idea of whether or not the particular condition applies to you. Many conditions cause similar symptoms, so what may look like one disorder might actually be something else entirely.
Our site is broken down into sections that can be easily accessed using the links to the left and above.

Regardless of what you learn on this site, you should always consult a dermatologist when it comes to skin disorders of any kind. Just because something looks harmless, doesn't mean it can't develop into something more serious. Whether it's a simple red patch, an itchy bump or a slight discoloration, err on the side of caution and have it checked out. It's always better to be safe than sorry.
