The skin is the largest organ of the human body, the first protective barrier of the body and one of the important excretory organs. In conventional medicine, there is great focus on skin rashes to help to diagnose the internal illnesses.  Persian medical scholars have also studied a wide range of internal disorders by examining skin manifestations. The aim of this study is to investigate the etiology and semiology of various skin rashes and manifestations from Persian and conventional medicine viewpoints, and to clarify similarities and differences between them. For this purpose data corresponding with key words was extracted from reference books and then relevant scientific databases including Google scholar, PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus and reliable sources like Janquira histology, Habif and Savin's dermatology books were examined. An overview of the cutaneous rash and diseases, revealed that in many cases, these two schools of medicine are not comparable. However, in some cases, such as etiology, description, clinical signs, diagnosis, etc., serious similarities in topic of rashes, skin manifestations and chronic diseases are mentioned  in the overview of this two medical schools.
