Broken Bones (Multiple Fractures) And Skin Rash

Reviewed on 8/31/2020

Skin rashes can be caused by inflammation of the skin (dermatitis) due to all causes, including contact dermatitis and eczema. Lice infestations may cause scratching that can lead to skin changes. An actinic keratosis, in contrast to a rash, usually is a single precancerous skin abnormality but an individual may have more than one. Your doctor can help you determine the cause of any worrisome changes in your skin. Broken bones are associated with trauma, which can also affect the skin, but trauma is not related to lice, dermatitis, eczema, or actinic keratosis. If a cast is present to cover broken bones, rash and irritation can occasionally develop beneath the cast.
