Common Questions and Answers about Brown skin spots during pregnancy

skin

Avatar f tn Are they itchy or anything? I know that there are many skin changes during pregnancy...it almost sounds like your getting "the mask of pregnancy" just not on your face. Are the spots raised up at all or irritated? I would speak with your doctor for sure to see what it is.
Avatar f tn Hi im 19 wks. I just noticed brown spots on my skin (on my hand) do any of u might know what this is ? Or what is causing it . its not painful.
Avatar n tn I have had a brown mole for as long as I can remember. I go every 6 months for skin checks based on my history. This brown mole is rather large and my dermatologist always monitors it. I just noticed the other day that it now had brown spots throughout it which it never has. They got me in the office. My doctor wasn't overly concerned (or at least didn't make me think he was) but did take it out. He had to use the largest punch biopsy they had (8 mm) because it was very large.
Avatar n tn I am a 47 year old divoced women, I have notice dark brown spots on both of my inner thighs. They do not hurt. They are just brown spots some are darker then others. Sometimes they turn out to be a little darker then my skin but turns dark brown. They don't appear to be raised. they have been there for a few years.
279473 tn?1222144363 You have found that it works well for you? Also, is it something that is approved for use during pregnancy? I'm sure it is but I am just super paranoid!!! I will have to check it out and see how it works for me. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn hi everyone! a long time ago (maybe a year or so), i was talking to someone about some brown patches on my skin (and theirs) that look like collections of freckles, and that my endo said they were caused by my thyroid problem. i said i'd post if i found any more info, so hopefully whoever i was talking to will see this!
341551 tn?1266984330 Yea it is very scary looking...its strange though, they are only on my legs. But they started out as spots and now seem to be taking over my entire legs! It definitely freaks me out but I've done a lot of research on it and seems to be the "mask of pregnancy" if you look that up, it explains the random brown spots that appear on your body. I definitely plan on showing my doctor at my next Prenatal, but in the meantime I'm just thinking its normal and part of Pregnancy!
Avatar n tn Everyone feels better when they know the reason why. The sight of blood is very unnerving during a pregnancy, and I think they should be more accomadating in figuring out the reasons WHY it happened.
Avatar n tn I also began to get a number of small, pinhead-sized, bright red spots on my arms and legs during pregnancy and have developed small, light-brown spots on the backs of my legs, often many in one spot, and am not sure if they are related either. They are not itchy or bothersome, and are only really noticable in the sun or bright light. Do you have any idea what it could be? Is it related to childbirth or are the two not associated?
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,it is difficult to confirm a diagnosis,but from your description ,it looks like post inflammatory hyperpigmentation(the skin darkens because of an overproduction of melanin (a pigment that occurs naturally in the body) in reaction to inflammation) , liver spots(flat brown-black spots that usually occur in sun-exposed areas of the body.
Avatar n tn I'm having dark brown to red discharge I'm only about 4-5 weeks pregnant having a scan on Friday the 22 January 2010 I'm scared to find no hart beat as this is out first pregnancy what should I do
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) about seven years ago. I too have brown spots on my feet and ankles. It started with just a few spots on the top of my right foot. It continued to increase at a steady rate. Soon after I began noticing the spots on my left foot. Now there are so many brown spots on my right foot and ankle that they almost completely cover it. I was on neurontin for a long time. Eventually it irritated my stomach.
Avatar n tn We always use condoms, but there is always the worry of pregnancy. More worry now than ever. I recently noticed a brown discharge one day after having sex. It was very light not heavy, but not like water either. It went away until the next morning, which would have been 2 days after sex. It did not show up on my panties, it only showed up when I wiped. My abdomen has not really hurt, just sort of a sore feeling. I think due to the worry and stress of possibly being pregnant.
605491 tn?1220131219 DO you know your mom's poroblems in her pregnancy?what your experiences during the pregnancy problems? does it really multiply rapidly, ı mean the lessions? I went to a genetic to learn more about the baby's chance, and he said me that it can only be the carrier of the diease since my husband is not diagnosed. Thank you a lot for you sensitivity, love. Sevinç.
8367118 tn?1442609020 So I have noticed two very light brown spots, they look like birth marks expect lighter. Im on my firt trimester, is this normal ?? They appeared on my face??
Avatar n tn I'm having some dark brown spotting as well. I'm 6w2d along. As soon as I saw the spotting, I started looking through the online information that's available and was really worried about bleeding at all, even though they say brown means it's "Old Blood". They say that about 50% of women who bleed during pregnancy go on to carry the pregnancy full term, and the other 50% do not.
Avatar n tn I have been wondering what was the first pregnancy symptom that all of you women experienced? Did you have symptoms prior to your BFP or did they come a few weeks later? I "O'ed" 7 days ago and I have never before experienced such painful/tender breasts. It may be some major PMS so I am not getting my hopes up. Just thought it would be fun to share with us TTC your signs/symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days.
Avatar n tn It is raised, red and extremely itchy and the dry skin looked scaley and flakey. If it got really dry it would turn brown. Lotions would help the itch slightly but the raised red aspect always stayed. Finally the raised and itchy part went away but the redness has remained as well as black skin along the top border. The edges of the rash never change as far as the size and shape of the rash, it will fluctiate in darkness.
Avatar n tn I ashaved like a week and a halp earlier and now my vaginal outer skin is really dry aand has like whitish dry spots around my outer skin on my vagiaa where the hair is. The itching is killing me n its always in the same area and when i scratch one place it sets off the others.
Avatar n tn They come out from the skin pours in the night time or to take little fresh air during day time. The larva keeps crawling and bouncing on the skin surface when they come out. The youg flies and the adult flies live in the surrounding environment, hiding themselves from light and keep visiting the host's body during day times to have their blood meal and during night for both blood sucking and to lay their eggs.
419158 tn?1316575204 I have read on the internet and in books like what to expect when expecting about skin changes during pregnancy but being that I have never been pregnant during the summer (before now) I have never had a problem. Now with baby #3 I have brown patches on my face!! They look horrible! I have a patch above my lip that looks like a 5 oclock shadow!! One above my nose and another on the side of my nose close to my cheek.
Avatar f tn Your skin is more sensitive and more likely to burn during pregnancy. There isn't a risk to the fetus because your getting a tan....your safe. What? Are we just suppposed to sit around being fat and WHITE? I don't think so!!
Avatar f tn This presents as pale, dark tan, or pink spots, with a reddish undertone that can darken when the patient is overheated, such as in a hot shower or during/after exercise . In people with dark skin tones, pigmentary changes such as hypopigmentation (loss of color) are common, while in those with lighter skin color, hyperpigmentation (increase in skin color) are more common. Topical antifungal medications - containing either 2.
Avatar n tn Hi! My question is how can we differentiate pregnancy and pms symptoms?Every month i have symptoms like breast tenderness,tiredness,digestive problems,bloating and twinges in lower abdomen for about a week prior to my period.All of these symptoms resemble early pregnancy symptoms.Since i have been ttc,it becomes very difficult for me to understand during the two week wait.Kindly share your opinions.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn You should be able to find it, if you use this spray, your skin will look tanned, so the brown discoloration of your body areas won't be so noticable. - will someone test it?
Avatar n tn The doc said I could only wait and test again (she suggested a week), but although not having seen it an awful lot, did know of someone who had never tested positive during her pregnancy (I think it's only the first trimester that the hormones are meant to be present). She didn't test me again, as said that the tests available in shops were probably even more reliable than the ones she had. She also thought that six days late was probably still quite early really.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
