Skin spots types

Common Questions and Answers about Skin spots types


Avatar n tn Pimples,boils or abscesses on the breast can occur just like on skin anywhere else on the body.This can happen for various reasons, from pores clogged with dead skin and oil, to bacterial infection . Since pus has come out upon squeezing ,you should see an improvement,but you should avoid further squeezing the sore because you might make things worse.Keep the area clean, wash with an antibacterial soap and see if it goes away in a week or so.
Avatar f tn Hi, There are many types of dermatitis (skin inflammation) that can appear anywhere on the skin, including the breasts. What you have could be eczema or an allergic reaction of some sort. Your symptoms don’t sound at all like a breast issue, so don’t worry about breast cancer.
Avatar f tn There are different types such as excema,tan spots,white spots(alot of times on face,neck,shoulders and arms but can vary in places all over body.. google Hypopigmentation or best bet is to search it under MayoClinic to get accurate info.
Avatar n tn Since going abroad without sunscreen they have developed into freckles that remain dark throughout the year. I was just wondering if anybody knew how the two types differ (apart from in the way I just mentioned) and if they have different names. i.e. are they situated in different levels of the dermis or... Thanks.
Avatar f tn The doctors couldn't determine whether it was psoriasis, but it doesn't have the same symptoms. It is like dry skin spots the size of a dime mostly. They often come and go. My sister has the same spots and itchy legs. I know that psoriasis is inherited and no one else in my family has ever had any of these problems besides me and her. The spots on my stomach never really itch, or flake off, or anything they are just like red spots, sometimes even just look similar to a bruise.
Avatar n tn As you explain about these white spots are flat on skin and spreading slowly it seems that this is skin condition vitiligo. white spots on skin which feel burning while exposed to the sun is a common symptom of skin condition vitiligo (source of info: ). I recommend you not use tanning beds to treat these spots. Because the intensity of uv radiation in these beds is 3 to 8 time than the sunlight. There is a great risk for skin cancer by harmful rays of UV.
Avatar m tn I have several 5-10 small white marks on my shaft, they don't cause pain and they are not tender, and when i am erect i can barely seem them, and i am not sure about how long have had them, i can't seem to scratch or pop them they are pretty flush with the skin, (no pain from trying) and the other beneath my belly button i have a handful spread out very small pimple looking marks, similar to a white head, but no puss when i pop the tiny things, just a tad of blood, no pain either, i am not sure
Avatar n tn Melanoma, Non-melanoma' 'Actinic or solar keratoses, is a concern because it can progress into cancer. Actinic keratoses are considered the earliest stage in the development of skin cancer, and are caused by long-term exposure to sunlight. They are the most common pre-malignant skin condition.' 'Photokeratitis can be thought of as a sunburn of the cornea. It is caused by intense UVC/UVB exposure of the eye.
Avatar f tn I had eczema on my face for as long as i can remember, my doc perscribed triamcinolone acetonide ointment I have been using this for about 7 years and its the only thing that has worked, now when i try to lean away from it my face breaks out in all types of red burning inflamed hives what can i do to break my skin away from this ointment?
Avatar n tn ' 'Sometimes referred to as “photoaging,” premature aging is the result of unprotected UV exposure. It takes the form of leathery, wrinkled skin, and dark spots.' 'There are two main types of skin cancer:Melanoma, Non-melanoma' 'Actinic or solar keratoses, is a concern because it can progress into cancer. Actinic keratoses are considered the earliest stage in the development of skin cancer, and are caused by long-term exposure to sunlight.
Avatar m tn i have a acne bump on my face thats been there for a long time, ive tried everything, but still it stays there, and then light spots on my cheeks, and the side of my face, what do you think it is!
Avatar m tn It has a small rash looking area around it making my skin look redish. If I spread the skin on my arm the redish color goes away. As sson as I let go it comes back. I also have a spot just under my left eye. I have another smaller one starting to form on my upper left arm and left index finger. I have heard that this could be caused by Liver problems or a lack of Vitamin K. Is there any truth to this?
Avatar n tn About two weeks ago I purchased a can of LotirminAF to treat some itching I had between my legs. I noticed about a week later that I had some red spots on my scrotum, small blood spots actually, that blanch when pressed. I stopped the Lotrimin when I noticed the spots, and because there was a slight irritation, but nothing major. Since then there has been no itching or irritation to speak of. I am not sure how long the spots have been there, maybe long before I used the Lotrimin.
198419 tn?1360245956 I would rather do a shot just under the skin anyday. The Copaxone just under the skin fits my lifestyle. The itching I can tolerate, as it gets less with more use of the Copaxone. In the beginning of injecting with Cop, it was miseraable. Big welts. Red, burning and itching. Now I have small welts and itching. I have to admit, sometimes the itching is intense and I do keep the welts for about a week, from each injection. That is the only difficult part.
Avatar n tn Around 2 years ago i discovered white spots under my skin it is on my tummy and hips. Now a days i also have these white spots on my arms. I use different types of products from sporanox to Nizolar but they did not done any affects. Is it fungus or not? because according to my Dermatolagy he said that it is not fungus because he saw them uder the U.V light. so what are they because he is not sure about these spots.
Avatar n tn could be lots of things. maybe fungal, which is common on elbows. Do you spend a lot of time in the sun? Or did you in the past? Age spots? many many possibilities Make an appointment with your dermatologist for a good screening, diagnosis, and treatment plan.
Avatar f tn i don't llive there anymore however all the dark spots from old scars are still visible on my legs......i've used all types of cocoa's so embarrassing....i always have to cover up......even when it's really hot....i can't even wear a skirt or shorts.....i avoid relationships becuz i'm so embarrassed of myself............idk what else to do i'm fed up.
Avatar f tn Also talk to your doctor about Differin, a topical synthetic retinoid. This will exfoliate your skin and is good for all types of acne, spots and blackheads. It is generally well tolerated with few side effects, and should not dry your skin or contribute to wrinkles. Eloise.
Avatar f tn When I was 5 During a snowy winter the skin around my nose and chin felt tight and uncomfortable and not knowing how to ease it I used to wet my fingers and rub the area which wasn't a great idea seeing as it created a horrid rash round my nose chin and mouth, this got so uncomfortable I couldn't bear it, my mum tried every cream and old wives tale she could think of from vasaline, nivea,e45 and the list goes on I am now 30 and still suffering, I no longer have the red rash but I cannot go more

Avatar n tn skin get red spots and ten flakes off and then starts to peel in layers and then starts all over again
Avatar f tn Very fair blonds are more at risk for developing certain types of skin cancers, especially if they have been exposed to the sun a lot. All the best, and God Bless!
Avatar n tn The spots don't itch and my skin isn't red. When I went on holiday to a hot place almost all my sts were gone. I am not dismissing you, i just want to make sure. Also, my GP said it's ezchema and I have used many types of cream but none of them seems to make it go away. Thank You for your help.
Avatar m tn as a 60 plus can i do anything to prevent these 'spots' a started getting a few years ago. annually the doc just freezes them off.
Avatar n tn This could be a wart, viral infection, folliculitis, fordyce spots or pearly penile papules. There are a number of different types of wart may appear on the penis. Genital warts are caused by human papilloma virus and are infectious. They may be single or multiple, skin-coloured, pink or brown, with a moist surface. Another common viral disease affecting the skin and mucous membranes is molluscum contagiosum.
Avatar m tn been to doctors dermatologist been given all types of creams but none worked .
Avatar m tn You can tell if its a wart easily by looking at the spots surrounding. If your natural skin texture ends where the bump begins, and the bump has its own individual texture different from rest of our body, it is a wart. Fordyce spots are small circular spots that can occur almost anywhere on your penis. They may sometimes have a white tip at the top of the dot. Have you taken a HPV swab test from the supposed area?
Avatar f tn My husband has been suffering from a few types of skin problems, On his face there are areas, dry patches around his chin and cheeks, I've tried putting coco butter on them and that helps but only for a few hours. below his ears are these often painfull dry patchy lumps, we think they might be ingrown hairs but were not sure.
Avatar n tn If anyone else suffers from strange skin conditions like tiny black specks coming from the skin pores, white granules coming from skin, strange fibers protruding from skin, or other conditions such as Lyme disease, or invisible skin parasites, they, also should get in touch with us. if it IS the condition we have been working on, there is a cheap and very successful cure for it. http://www.randburkey.netfirms.
