Solely a color change, flat and circumcised of <1cm
Something you can feel, caused by a superficial thickening in epidermis <1 cm
Macules larger than 1cm
Papules coalesce to form surface elevation greater than 1cm
Solid, elevated, hard or soft, larger than 1cm, may extend deeper into dermis than papule
Larger than a few centimeters, firm or soft, deeper into dermis, may be benign or malignant
Superficial, raised, transient and erythematous; irregular shape from edema
Urticaria (hives)
Wheals coalesce to form extensive reaction, intensely pruritic
Elevated cavity containing free fluid, up to 1 cm
Larger than 1 cm fluid filled single chambered
Encapsulated fluid-filled cavity in dermis or subcutaneous layer, tensely elevating skin
Turbid fluid (pus) in the cavity, circumscribed, elevated
Crust (secondary)
Thickened, dried out exudate left when vesicles/pustules burst or dry up
Scale (secondary)
Compact, desiccated flakes of skin, dry or greasy, silvery or white, from shedding of dead excess keratin cells
Fissure (secondary)
Linear crack with abrupt edges
Erosion (secondary)
Scooped out but shallow depression
Ulcer (secondary)
Deeper depression extending into dermis, irregular shape, may bleed, leaves scar when it heals
Excoriation (secondary)
Self-inflicted abrasion, superficial
Scar (secondary)
After a skin lesion is repairs, normal tissue is lost and replaced with connective tissue (Collagen)
Atrophic scar
Resulting skin level depressed with loss of tissue
Prolonged, intense scratching eventually thickens skin and produces tightly packed set of papules
Nevus flammeus (port-wine stain)
Large, flat, macular patch covering face or scalp frequently along distribution of cranial nerve V

Scalding red, moist patches with sharply demarcated borders, some loose scales; +candidiasis
Moist, thin-roofed vesicles with thin, erythematous base; rupture to form erosions and thick, honey-colored crusts; highly contagious bacterial infection can easily spread
Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
Chronic inflammatory skin lesion caused by overstimulated immune system, genetic changes in skin, and environmental triggers
Primary contact dermatitis
Local inflammatory reaction to an irritant in the environment of an allergy
Allergic drug reaction
Erythematous and symmetric rash, usually generalized
Tinea corporis
"ringworm of body," scales hyperpigmented in whites, depigmented in dark-skinned people
