What skin conditions are not suitable for skin camouflage?
As laid out by the British association of Skin Camouflage, skin conditions that require medical attention must not be covered using skin camouflage, as follows:
pustular forms of psoriais
viral infections, herpes simplex, herpes zoster (shingles) and warts
illnesses that manifest on skin visually (chickenpox, measles)
infestations (scabies, lice)
bacterial and fungal infections (ringworm)
open wound or stitches
photodermatoses (actinic dermatitis)
It is always advised to seek medical advice before proceeding with skin camouflage.
