Dermatomyositis is a rare autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscles. It involves muscle inflammation and distinctive skin rashes, typically appearing on the face, neck, shoulders, chest, and elbows. Treatment involves a combination of medications to reduce inflammation and modulate the immune system, along with physical therapy. With proper management, individuals with dermatomyositis can control symptoms and maintain an active lifestyle.
