What is extramammary paget's disease?

Skin rashes can be VERY confusing. Most are due to contact with something irritating and are easily treated with over the counter creams. However, there are some that need to be seen by a physician and possibly biopsied. One of these is Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD). It is a scaly, raised red to pink and grey rash that occurs most commonly where the skin is folded over such as the armpits, the genital areas, or the groin in men or women. EMPD is often ignored or diagnosed late due to its innocent appearance. It is important to see a physician if you have a rash in these areas that does not go away as it may be cancerous. Multiple treatments are available and patients do well when it is caught early.
