Skin Diseases, Melanocytes, & Skin Color


Hi this is Charles Crutchfield clinical professor
of dermatology and medical director at Crutchfield Dermatology
Talking about skin diseases most skin diseases occur in people of all skin colors
certain problems encountered in the skin are more common in people with skin of color and
sometimes a skin problem seems more obvious because it effects a person’s skin color
There are many variations in our skin colors in fact skin color is determined by specialized
cells called Melanocytes Melanocytes make brown pigment
Only three percent of the cells in our skin are melanocytes
These are the ones that make skin color
