Primary skin lesions
This article is a mess.. I came here looking to find info on skin ulcers... can't find it, except for a link at the bottom that refers back to this page -_-' Then I started looking for vesicles, but I also got redirected here... Also, all foreign articles (other language wikis) are now broken because they can't link to the specific subjects because all of this is just mashed together. 126.96.36.199 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 11:48, 5 April 2010 (UTC).

- I'm inclined to move epidemiology towards the end, like WP:MEDMOS#Sections usually has it.
- A bit more 'lumping together' would appeal to me. For example, I might turn most of the "Conditions of..." into a section titled something (in plain English) "Conditions affecting a single layer of the skin". Similarly, perhaps a large "Autoimmune" section would be appropriate. WhatamIdoing (talk) 07:15, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- I think those are all good ideas. Also, I think a section on nosology might be good too. I will wait for some more feedback, and then implement everyones' suggestions. ---kilbad (talk) 17:04, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Repository for facts that may be used at some point
For example, in different dermatologic texts, the papule is variously described as no greater than 1 centimetre (0.39 in) in size, less than 0.5 centimetres (0.20 in), smaller than a pea, or ranging in size from a pinhead to that of a split pea. In 1987, the International League of Dermatologic Societies published a glossary of basic lesions that has been a step towards standardization of this basic nomenclature, but there is still no strict set of definitions that have been universally agreed upon.
