Brilliant versicolor: the path to recovery is through the support of the body’s resistance
Good day, readers of our portal about skin! Our discussion today will focus on a rare disease called shiny shingles.
Doctors still have not come to a consensus whether the disease is atypical manifestation of lichen planus or it should be considered as a separate variety of dermatosis.
The second name of the disease – Lychen and they are mostly boys of kindergarten age.
Previously it was thought that shiny ringworm — a kind pair of TB dermatosis. This theory of recognition has not received.
Scientists are still conducting research on the emergence of the disease. While that version of the causes of disease is an allergic component, namely reaction to internal and external stimuli.
For starters, take a look at this collection you can see how differently it manifests itself Lychen.
As you know, the disease mostly appears in children. It begins with symmetrically located lesions.
As a rule, white nodules, flat or spherical shape, the surface of the zit smooth and shiny, and the color is virtually indistinguishable from the healthy skin. In the center of the knot you can see the dimple.
Elements of the rash may be concentrated in different places, often they form in the shape of a circle.
As we all know, the pathology often affect boys, so common are these cases, when pimples are on the member.
However, generalized form of lichen shiny, occurs too often. If the rash covers her entire body, including mucous membranes.
Physicians are divided Lychen in several similar forms:
The survey is conducted with the help of skin tests, histological examination and blood count.
It is important to distinguish this form from lichen planus. In this case, the distinguishing feature is the color of the pimples.
Red lichen they are dark red. About it in more detail you can read in this article.
It should be noted that much discomfort, apart from the aesthetic, this issue does not carry. Usually, the pimples do not itch and do not cause pain.
Although, given the fact that the disease has not been studied thoroughly, the exception happens and on the contrary.
After accurate diagnosis, the doctor painted a treatment plan. It totally depends on symptoms, disease duration and localization of the rash.
It is also important to clearly understand what led to this disease.
Often, therapy is aimed at strengthening the immune system. For this prescribed vitamins and encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Possible receiving immunomodulators that are suitable for the age group.
In the treatment of depriving a brilliant doctor focuses the patient on the methods of physiotherapy. Commonly used ultraviolet irradiation, is also good to spend some time in the sun, morning and evening hours.
Ointments are appointed predominantly with the contents of tar, sulfur, salicylic acid and glucosteroids.
In severe cases when large area is covered with skin or a pronounced cosmetic defect, nodules are removed using cryotherapy, or electrocoagulation.
I enclose an interesting video where a dermatologist talks about microsporia, people call it ringworm:
Here, as with other skin diseases, the need for an integrated approach and strict adherence to instructions of the dermatologist.
If the pimples appeared on the genitals, ointments are selected based on processing capabilities of their mucous membranes.
They should have a more gentle action and low side effects. Also, for these locations a doctor can get special teas for rinsing.

Usually shiny ringworm is easy to diagnose. Other forms of the disease distinguished by his white shiny pimples filled with fluid.
At diagnosis the doctor will conduct a few tests, its main task is to identify a number of symptoms that indicate it in this disease.
The reasons for which pathology occurs, most likely allergic in nature. At least this version has a right to exist.
