1714912 tn?1308695154 Hello, Neurofibromatosis-1 is an inherited disorder in which nerve tissue tumors (neurofibromas) form in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It presents with café au lait spots that present as pigmented, light brown macules located on nerves, with smooth edged, "coast of California". Hence if her margins are irregular then a biopsy of the lesion and gene mapping can be done to confirm the diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn since my early childhood, I have always had some skin problems. Now, I have some brownish spots on my neck, under my armpits, on my chest, belly, on my back, and around my waist. recently, the spots have spread a little to my forehead, chin, and near my jaws. I visited a dermatologist in 2006, but the creams he prescibed did not cure me. I visited another one 2009, she told me that the cause of the problem maybe the side-effects of medicine that I once had.

Avatar n tn it is mainly skin coloured and sort of comes to a point at the end and it is white-ish. I told my boyfriend and he thought it could be a wart, but he wasn't sure. I am so scared to go to the doctor. I wonder if I have HPV. Now I think I have the same just inside my anus. help?!
903476 tn?1242240637 My 4 year old Chihuahua 's face is nearly totally white now all around the eyes and mouth and now it's staring on the top of the head. Shes mostly black with a small white patch on her chest tummy and 3 of her paws and shes got dark brown/tanish colour down he sides and a ringed tail. Her face was pure black but in the past year shes gotten so much white she looks like a 12 year old dog not 4 year old. I feed her good food, shes on Natures Choice Lamb and Rice.
Avatar n tn When babies are born, i have heard that babies with parents of black american or say african decsent are born with white skin that slowly changes to their proper colour as they grow. Is this true or are all babies born with the right skin colour straight away?
Avatar n tn I have developed patches of thick, scaly, hard, dry skin on the outside of both feet just on and below the ankle bone, maybe 1" x 3" areas. The patches are not discolored except for white striations from dryness. No cream or lotion or oil I have used on it shows any discernable improvement. Pumice stone didn't help much either. Can you suggest a name for such a condition? A treatment?
Avatar n tn Like other areas of the body the skin on the breast is also susceptible to infections/skin problems. Discuss with your doctor so they can (with benefit of examination and information specific to you), direct you appropriately. With the complexity of the situation, without benefit of physical examination, ability to evaluate testing results etc. it is difficult to advise more specifically.
Avatar f tn If this is the same thing I have, white are what feel like rough patches of skin, with little white things sticking out of the pores. They look like white heads, but they dont squeeze out quite as well or as easily as white heads can. I notice they go away for a few days if I do hot yoga, where I am sweating for 90 minutes, or after a long run. So cleaning from the inside out seems to be the case. To be entirely honest i think its the body trying to detox.
Avatar f tn The condition is called Palmo-plantar keratoderma. It is caused by a genetic mutation of the keratin gene that is responsible for skin cell production. I have tried Vaseline which can be great only for cracks. Other than that it dries the hell out of my hands. I always moisturize my feet with Vaseline and wear 100% cotton socks and rarely wear sandals. The recent struggles have been my hands. I work on a computer all day and it has progressed quickly.
Avatar n tn I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar n tn I have extremely sensetive skin myself and had to resort to baby lotion and shampoos to keep me from overdrying my skin. Many lotions make the skin oily rather than truly moisturize. Cetaphil is a good lotion, but I use Aveeno baby lotion. It seems to do the trick. What soaps do you use? Dial AB or Dove, ?? ?
5355495 tn?1366824610 Color is more complicated than the ability to roll your tongue, but the principle is the same. If a dark skin color gene is present, it will show up and override white genes, although if you have one of each you'll be lighter. White people have two copies of a white gene (again this is a simplification). So when you mix we'll call the dark gene C for colored and white genes "c", you get different combos.
Avatar n tn This is my first pregnancy so I'm not sure how baby getting certain genes works. For skin tone, the father is more tan while I'm pretty pastey. Which gene is more likely to be dominant? It's doesn't matter to me I'm just curious and confused!
Avatar n tn My left sideof my body gets numb, like the outer skin layer, even on my face. I just got my MRI results that say the following, there are several focal hyperintense white matter abnormalities, they are non specific in nature, but at my age of 39 they are abnormal. whats going on with me? M.S. does not run in my family, friedrich ataxia does but i am only a carrier of that gene. it comes in waves like, i could be standing and my face and scalp go numb/tingly more than numb.

Avatar m tn I just turned 33 years of age. White male of European Slavic decent, no health problems, normal height 6 feet and 200 pounds. Thing is, I still have wisdom teeth coming out. Back there some are still fully under the skin but slowly growing in size, others are half way out. Some I feel will start growing soon, they are still very small bumps under the skin. There is no pain or discomfort.
Avatar f tn My little sister her mom is white & her dad is black, she is white as white with African American hair!!(: and my friend is white& her baby daddy is black, her baby is really tan with African American hair. Both beautiful babies!! So your in luck there! Im kinda gelous how cute they are! Congrats! And yes landons way cute!!!
8341316 tn?1397699409 Pretty much the only for sure one is if you anf your partner have blue eyes because then the baby will have blue as well. Since blue is a recessive gene, if a parent has blue eyes that means they do not have a brown eye gene at all. So 2 blue eyed parents will produce a blue eyed baby since neither would have the brown eyed gene.
Avatar m tn Malar rash: butterfly-shaped rash across cheeks and nose Discoid (skin) rash: raised red patches Photosensitivity: skin rash as result of unusual reaction to sunlight Mouth or nose ulcers: usually painless Arthritis (nonerosive) in two or more joints, along with tenderness, swelling, or effusion. With nonerosive arthritis, the bones around joints don’t get destroyed.
1035252 tn?1427231433 If that is the case, Nmachi would pass the gene to her children -- and they, too, would likely be white. * She's the product of long-dormant white genes, passed on to her by her parents, that might have been carried by their predecessors for generations without surfacing until now.
Avatar f tn black couple they end up being like a light caramel skin tone or even a little more towards the white side,so i think your right about yours,but you never know,sometimes its different .
Avatar n tn Okay, I was kinda bored at work when reading your post, so I attempted to do this the way I learned in biology (you know, with those little charts with the B's and b's). Don't put too much faith in my calculations, though. I haven't done this in a few years! Given genetics for your mother and father: M: blue eyes (represented by "bb"), brown hair (represented by "Bb"), and I'm guessing fair skin (represented by "ff").
Avatar n tn Lesions first appear as small 0.5-1 cm hypopigmented or white macules that merge to form larger patches, these patches are asymmetrical. The genetic alteration of melanocytes in the hypopigmented lesion is assumed to resulted in the development of multiple pigmented nevi. The alteration is cused by chromosomal mosaicism and sporadic mutations. It is not an inherited disorder as the chromosomal defect occurs after conception. The specific gene(s) involved has not been confirmed.
886824 tn?1253740254 Connective tissues are comprised of proteins that support bones, skin, blood vessels and other organs, like the heart. As such, EDS usually affects the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Symptoms can range from mild to severe depending on the type of EDS.
