Common Questions and Answers about Skin spots on legs


Avatar n tn For a few years I have had dark spots on my legs. However, these are only on the lower leg, and to the outer side(not the inner side- that is clear, natural skin), and only on the lower half of the leg(where it was regularly exposed to the sun as a result of my school uniform.) I have researched sun spots and I know that it has nothing to do with that.

Avatar n tn For about 6 years I have had constant bumps on my arms and legs. Some are ingrown hairs, others are more like pimples or clogged pores. A few areas are worse than others, but all are fairly bad. I have tried exfoliating and moisturizing regularly (I use Aveeno typically), but nothing seems to work. I do have mildly dry skin, but as I said, I moisturize fairly regularly and strangely do not have any significant problems with acne on my face.

1264865 tn?1270045810 On only my legs there are noticable white dots. I am fairly sure that it is not tinea versicolor because the dots are spread very even. They look almost like goosebumps but they are not raised, they dont itch and they are only on my legs. I would really like to get rid of these dots because when I get tan during the summer they really show up... I have ever gone to a tanning bed either. I have a picture but it is hard to see because of the lighting.

Avatar n tn Hi, I have a rash that appears mostly in the summer months. It appears on my knees and ankles mostly but can also be seen on legs and feet. It's raised red spots which appear to have white around them. It has come back every year for about 6 years. I live in Ireland so the climate can get warm but not very warm and not very often. When i get to the doctor it has disappeared. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Avatar f tn I have reocurring red spots surface under skin on forearms. I am 65 yrs old and am sure I have some sun damage on forearms. Legs do not do this. I use skin protection.

Thanks for any info you can tell me.

Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 19 year old male, and for the last 2 months, I have had many small red spots that are different sizes, mostly round shaped, raised, and had scales over it on both my arms and legs.

He did a skin biopsy on my leg, and I am currently still waiting for results. In the meantime, he gave a Elcom (Mometasone Furoate 0.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis needs to be ruled out. It is 2 to 5-mm flat white spots found on the shins and forearms. It can be due to sun damage or ageing. Treatment options include protection from the sun, cryotherapy, dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, tretinoin cream or pinch grafts of normal pigmented skin. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn i have white spots on my lower legs and arms for several years. They are smooth and flat, does not hurt nor itch, and are between 1 mm to 3 mm in diameter. Over the years, they seem to have grown to 3 mm. i heard they may be tinea versicolor, or luecoderma, or vitiligo. But the pictures i found of tinea and vitiligo seem really widespread over parts of the body. This is not so,in my case. Just tiny dots, like a galaxy on my skin, spattered all over the lower legs and arms.
