Men and women have different concerns when caring for their skin, hair, and nails. Besides apparent differences like facial hair and male pattern baldness, testosterone causes men to have thicker, oilier skin than women. Men also have more and larger pores than women, have increased risk factors for skin irritation, and are more likely to develop skin cancer. Because of all this, the mistakes men often make when caring for their dermatologic health can differ from those women make.
It's fun to tease men as a group for being doctor-shy, so add in the distraction of NFL playoff season, and there's another reason that can be used for putting off dermatology care.
