Dowling-Degos disease

Dowling-Degos disease is a skin disorder with a pattern of abnormally dark skin pigmentation, particularly in the body's folds and creases. Individuals with Dowling-Degos disease may 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 with no history of acne. Fluid-filled sacs within the hair follicle may develop, most often on the scalp. Although Dowling-Degos disease skin changes can cause anxiety or anxiety, they seldom cause any other health problems. In addition to pigmentation changes, people with Galli-Galli disease have a cell breakdown of cells in the outer layer of skin. Acantholysis can cause skin inflammation and itchiness, which can lead to reddened or missing patches of skin.

Hidradenitis suppurativa

Hidradenitis suppurativa, also known as acne inversa, is a common skin disorder characterized by recurrent boil-like lumps under the skin. They cause significant scarring of the skin as the abscess heals. The signs and symptoms of hidradenitis suppurativa typically appear after puberty, in a person's teens or twenties, though they can occur earlier in puberty, particularly in affected females. Nodules are most likely to develop in the armpits and groin. Long-term absces on the buttocks may progress to squamous cell carcinoma, a rare form of skin cancer.
