Dermatologic Pathologies


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Chapter 4 Dermatologic Pathologies chapter was informative. I liked the pictures because I have seen some of these Pathologies on people. They were real looking. I even had a recent Wart that was pictured and looked up how to treat it and went and got some salicylic acid to put on it. Will see how it works 🙂 I liked the description of each of the pathologies; the etiology of each was interesting and helpful. Signs and Symptoms were helpful also nice to know what to look for and recognize. Nice to know how to do the treatment for the different situations and again loved the massage considerations. There were very good photos in this chapter. I also enjoy the real life case studies at the end of each chapter. Makes you think. This one in Chapter 4 had to do with a lice scare. I used to be a children’s hair dresser and we dealt with lice every now and again. I would not have a problem letting her know that she may have come in contact and ask her if she wanted me to check her hair.
