Forming the best differential diagnosis for a dermatologic condition requires an extensive knowledge base on an array of skin conditions. Part 1 of this CE course is specifically designed to augment your present understanding of acute and communicable skin maladies.

This session begins with detailed discussions on fungal conditions such as tinea corporis and Majocchi’s granuloma. The discussion then dives into comprehensive explanations of contagious infections caused by scabies and arthropods. A focus on viral infections such as varicella zoster virus and shingles, as well as herpes simplex virus type I are also provided. Each condition is augmented with images and practice questions that will help you quickly recognize how these specific disorders present.

The presentation delineates the following conditions among others:

  • Vesicles that affect the pediatric population (e.g., fifth disease, coxsackie virus)
  • Pityriasis rosea
  • Bullous pemphigoid
  • Angioedema
  • Tinea versicolor
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Bullous tinea
  • Eczema herpeticum
  • So much more!
