    CauliFlower Type Rash On Left Side!
    cwbennett16 posted:
    I had a spot on my lower left side a few weeks back it began to look like a cauliflower rash and itched terrible. But has since sort of faded and does not itch anymore and is beginning to look like its going to leave a scar anyone ever had anythig like this?
    Susan Evans, MD responded:
    Dear cwbennett16,

    Our skin is our largest protective organ, and it will react when something we're sensitive to comes in contact with it. The rash sounds like it is self-limiting, and as long as it continues to fade and the itching decreases, it is OK to just let it runs its course. You may be left with a scar due to the destruction of skin cells from both the rash and the scratching you may have done to try to alleviate the itching.
