Dowling-Degos disease

Dowling-Degos disease is a skin disease that is characterized by a lacy or net-like pattern of abnormally dark skin tonation, particularly in the body's folds and creases. Individuals with Dowling-Degos disease may also have dark spots on the face and back that resemble acne, red bumps around the mouth that resemble acne, or pitted scars on the cheek similar to acne scars but without a history of acne. Hyperpigmentation areas tend to grow over time, and other skin lesions tend to grow in number as well. Although Dowling-Degos disease skin changes can cause anxiety or fear, they rarely cause no other health issues. Individuals with Galli-Galli disease also have a reduction of cells in the outer layer of skin, in addition to pigmentation changes. Acantholysis can cause skin irritation and itchiness, as well as reddened or missing patches of skin.
