When discussing the skin folds of the body, one is referring to the groin, intergluteal cleft, axilla, inframammary folds, and pannus folds. The skin folds have unique characteristics that set them apart from other regions of the body. For one, these areas are almost continuously occluded. As a result, scale does not develop; maceration and fissuring develop instead. This alters the appearance of papulosquamous diseases and inflammatory processes in this region. The occlusion also allows for the development of a warm, moist environment favorable to the growth of fungi, yeast, and bacteria. Finally, the skin folds—in particular, the groin, intergluteal cleft, and the axilla—are the major sites in the body of apocrine glands. Thus, certain disease processes of these structures such as hidradenitis suppurativa occur predominantly in this area. Although many skin diseases can affect the skin folds to some degree, this chapter focuses on common disorders where skin fold eruptions are the main cutaneous finding.
