Skin Cancer is the most prolific but also one of the most treatable cancers today. According to skincancer.org, approximately 1 in 5 Americans will develop cancer in their lifetime. For Caucasian Americans that number is substantially higher, 1 in 3. According to the American Cancer Society over 1.5 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed this year.
Intense, intermittent sun exposure can occur on a tropical vacation or an October day spent outdoors at a football game or raking leaves. There’s also what’s known as incidental sun exposure. This type of sun exposure results from brief, everyday activities like your morning walk or walking to and from your car. This exposure accumulates over time and can seriously damage the skin.
Early detection and diagnosis of skin cancer is key to obtaining curative treatment, says Dr. Paul M. Parker, New Jersey plastic surgeon. Further, he advises, “Screen yourself for potentially dangerous changes in the moles on your skin, being mindful of the ABCD’s of detection.”
The American Melanoma Foundation has developed the ABCD’s of skin cancer detection to make self-examination easier and a regular routine for all. By being aware of these important skin changes and developments, you can be alerted and see your doctor sooner for treatment.
The ABCD’s are:
Asymmetry: one half of the mark is different that the other half
Border Irregularity: the edges are notched, uneven or blurred
Color Variation: The color is uneven or blurred.
Diameter: Diameter is greater than 6 millimeters
There are several other warning signs:

Question by Mike: Spots of Red Dry Skin On Crotch And Inner Thigh. HELP!?
For the past month or so i have noticed these red dry spots on my crotch and inner thigh. They don’t hurt even a little and they don’t even itch. Ive only had sex twice, and used protection both times. Also the last time i had intercourse was in February of last year. The “rash” has spread a little with the older spots losing there redness and only becoming dry. The spots sort of look like your sin does when it peels after a sunburn, some spots being larger than others. Please help, what is it? How do i treat it?
Answer by someone, someone else…

Question by Sherry S: red spots on dogs skin?
My white boxer pup is 5 months old and a couple days ago I noticed she is getting pinkish red spots on her skin on her belly. Then, yesterday I noticed it is kinda spreading to the other thin haired parts of her body. I have also noticed that she is not scratching this. It doesnt seem to be bothering her but I am definitely concerned. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. If vet visit is recommended, I have no problem with that. Thank you all.

Question by brianp708: Can vitamin supplements cause skin irritation?
I recently started taking a daily multi-vitamin and since have been noticing red spots/skin peeling on my face? (My sun exposure has been very limmited too.) Has this happened to anyone else before?
Answer by Jaded
You can have a reaction to anything. Stop taking the supplements and if the red spots continue, call your doctor.

A chronic acne sufferer visits Dr Pixie. Natalie, who has suffered from boils and cysts on her face, back and bottom since she was 12, said the condition was only getting worse. Natalie was diagnosed with Cystic Acne, more rare and ferocious than its milder variant which affects 80% of the population. Dr Pixie advised a joint course of antibiotics and laser treatment and sent Natalie to see a specialist dermatologist. Natalie’s skin was treated with pixel laser resurfacing treatment, rejuvenating healthy skin under the scar tissue and was given small skin grafts to cover the larger pock marks. Since, Natalie has had stronger laser treatment to tackle the deeper scaring. Several months later a radiant Natalie revisits the clinic thanking Dr Pixie for the huge physical and personal change the treatment has made. This new series explores the conditions and ailments that leave many of us a little red-faced and aims to de-stigmatise common complaints.
