Skin breakdown


Are there any skin conditions associated with CdLS?

Answer of our experts

To my knowledge specific skin conditions are not too common with CdLS. Often I have heard about sensitive skin that develops rashes easily ("tends to break out"), but never any breakdown or easy bleeding. I would suggest having a doctor evaluate this as if the patient does not have CdLS. It could be a different condition (e.g. psoriasis) or an infection, etc
