DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS FOR SKIN CONDITIONS
Differential diagnosis is a process used by healthcare professionals to identify the most likely cause of a patient’s symptoms or condition. In the context of skin conditions, differential diagnosis involves evaluating the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and other relevant factors to determine the most likely diagnosis.

There are many different skin conditions that healthcare professionals may consider when evaluating a patient with skin symptoms. Some common skin conditions that may be included in a differential diagnosis for skin conditions include:

Acne: a common skin condition characterized by the appearance of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the face, chest, and back.

Dermatitis: a general term for a group of skin conditions characterized by inflammation and irritation of the skin. There are several types of dermatitis, including atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, and seborrheic dermatitis.

Psoriasis: a chronic skin condition characterized by the appearance of red, scaly patches on the skin.

Rosacea: a chronic skin condition characterized by redness and flushing of the face, particularly the nose, cheeks, and forehead.

Eczema: a general term for a group of skin conditions characterized by itchy, red, and inflamed skin.

Fungal infections: a group of skin conditions caused by fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot or ringworm.

Viral infections: a group of skin conditions caused by viral infections, such as herpes or shingles.

Bacterial infections: a group of skin conditions caused by bacterial infections, such as impetigo or folliculitis.

Cancer: a group of skin conditions characterized by the abnormal growth and proliferation of skin cells.

In order to make a diagnosis, healthcare professionals may use a variety of tools and techniques, including physical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. Differential diagnosis is an important step in the process of evaluating and treating skin conditions, as it helps to ensure that the correct diagnosis is made and that the appropriate treatment is provided.
APA format with intext citation
3-5 scholarly references with in the last 5 years
Plagiarism free with Turnitin report
Properly identifying the cause and type of a patient’s skin condition involves a process of elimination known as differential diagnosis. Using this process, a health professional can take a given set of physical abnormalities, vital signs, health assessment findings, and patient descriptions of symptoms, and incrementally narrow them down until one diagnosis is determined as the most likely cause.
In this Lab Assignment, you will examine several visual representations of various skin conditions, describe your observations, and use the techniques of differential diagnosis to determine the most likely condition.
To prepare
• Review the Skin Conditions document provided in this week’s Learning Resources, and select one condition to closely examine for this Lab Assignment. PLEASE SEE ATTACHEMENT FOR SKIN CONDITIONS I have attached 2 chose one of them.

• Consider the abnormal physical characteristics you observe in the graphic you selected. How would you describe the characteristics using clinical terminologies?
• Explore different conditions that could be the cause of the skin abnormalities in the graphics you selected.
• Consider which of the conditions is most likely to be the correct diagnosis, and why.
• Review the Comprehensive SOAP Exemplar found in this week’s Learning Resources to guide you as you prepare your SOAP note. PLEASE SEE ATTACHEMTNS
• Download the SOAP Template found in this week’s Learning Resources, and use this template to complete this Lab Assignment. PLEASE SEE ATTACHEMTNS
THE LAB ASSIGNMENT
PLEASE SEE ATTACHEMENT FOR SKIN CONDITIONS I have attached two chose one please
• Choose one skin condition graphic (identify by number in your Chief Complaint) to document your assignment in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note format rather than the traditional narrative style. Refer to Chapter 2 of the Sullivan text and the Comprehensive SOAP Template in this week’s Learning Resources for guidance. Remember that not all comprehensive SOAP data are included in every patient case.
• Use clinical terminologies to explain the physical characteristics featured in the graphic. Formulate a differential diagnosis of five possible conditions for the skin graphic that you chose. Determine which is most likely to be the correct diagnosis and explain your reasoning using at least three different references, one reference from current evidence-based literature from your search and two different references from this week’s Learning Resources.
