HEALTH: SKIN CHALLENGES FACING PEOPLE OF COLOR.

JOSHUA FOX, M.D., founder of ADVANCED DERMATOLOGY, P.C. in New York City and on Long Island, N.Y., and spokesman for the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery: "People of African, Asian, Latin and Native American backgrounds know that their skin, hair and nails are subject to conditions that do not affect lighter-skinned people. While most of these are not serious, they may be disturbing, troubling or unsightly. Fortunately, your dermatologist is well acquainted with these conditions and can help people with dark skin to diagnose and treat their concerns early and quickly."
