In brief: Skin lesions

95% of people with ts have skin manifestations that can be very diverse.
Lighter patches of skin that resemble an ash leaf, may be the 1st sign in babies. Other lesions may resemble acne and you see them around nose and cheeks. On back and neck you may find areas of skin that resemble an orange peel. Finger and toenails may have fleshy appearing growths under or around the nails.
