Iododerma and bromoderma are skin conditions that arise due to the use of iodide- and bromide-containing drugs. The most severe forms of the conditions include carbuncular, acneiform, pyodermatous, furuncular, granulomatous, and chancriform. Iodide and bromide halides are found in many foods, the environment, and medications. Bromides tend to cause worse reactions than iodides. The photo depicts acne- or folliculitis-like lesions caused bye a reaction to iodide.
