So Google notified me that I have I have a violation on a page that serves ads. It turns out that it's my article about eczema. I'm guessing the "shocking content" is photos of skin with rashes which are pretty much essential to enlighten readers on how the condition manifests itself. I'm not sure I want to remove them just to suit them and in any case it would mean the article wouldn't turn up in an image search.
Don't mess with Google AdSense. Turn off the ads or unpublish the page. I've sacrificed a few pages myself; it's just the way it is.
Edit. Or, as you said, bite the bullet and remove the images.
That's crazy. I saw the images and it's just reddened skin. Unsightly, of course, but not offensive.
Writing anything medical is a pain in the neck in so many ways... I've given up writing on the subject altogether.
That's ridiculous. I received a violation notice for "shocking content" on a HealDove article recently. I didn't think there was anything wrong with the image when I put it in the article, but when I looked at it after I got the notice I realized that some people might have a problem with it. That's not the case with your images. As theraggededge says, you're just showing reddened skin.
I agree with the comments above, it would be a shame to lose the photos as they help explain what eczema is. However, it may not be these that are causing the problem.
There are two issues in the comments section that may be an issue.
1. There is a self-promotional link from Sara Johnson that links back to HP (ie not a niche site).
2. Also Susan W discusses using Silcocks Base which the bot may be reading as a banned word. Try deleting those 2 comments (and your replies) and see if that resolves the issue.
I am not surprised. Opinions are rampant on the Internet. Still, it is NOT okay.
Sadly, it is not who is right that wins. It is who has the bigger stick.

I was shocked to receive a notification of a violation of Google Adsense policy. It seems I have Violent Content Gore. This is on a hub on PRP Therapy vs. TPLO surgery for dogs. The violation is not specific, but I am guessing the video of TPLO surgery is the offending item. I...

I have been on Hubpages with AdSense for years. I like getting the monetary trickle my ads have in conjunction with the site traffic. I got an email yesterday or this morning from AdSense expressing that I am at risk of not getting anymore ad payments if a technical issue is not...

My Google AdSense is in violation due to the fact that I canceled my adsense account by mistake. I got confused when trying to restore the account and somehow in the process made another account. I'm very disappointed with Google for not having a live person to speak with in these types...

On Monday I was dinged for an article about The Siege of Sidney Street that the HP team could find nothing wrong with. Today, the big G's algorithm is at it again, flagging an article about a woman who was a spy for the Union working behind Confederate lines during the Civil WarI expect they are...
