Adult, Male, Chest (Edit search)
The adult chest can be the site of a large number of skin conditions, and there are a few conditions that are specific to or more confined to the chest. Occasionally the nipples can become irritated and cause a condition called nipple dermatitis. This condition may be the result of eczema, chemical irritants, or local irritation, such as from the fabric of a shirt. Fungal infections such as tinea versicolor or ringworm (tinea corporis) can affect the skin. Shingles, also known as zoster, will often cause a very painful rash over one side of the chest. Pityriasis rosea is a rash of unknown cause that will often cover large areas of the back and chest. See the pictures below for links to these and other conditions.
