Skin Rash And Unusual Or Suspicious Mole

Last Editorial Review: 8/31/2020

A skin rash or skin changes can appear with contact dermatitis in response to a skin irritant or may be related to a chronic condition like eczema. Lice infestations can cause intense itching and scratching, leading to skin redness or thickening. A suspicious mole is usually a single abnormal spot on the skin and is not caused by eczema, contact dermatitis, or lice.
