Mottled appearance on skin after usage of heating pad

My husband has been using a heating pad on his lower back and the skin has developed a mottled appearance, which seems to be getting darker. He is also diabetic. Should he be concerned? Obviously he s not.

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon 's  Response
Dear Shamballa,
Thanks for contacting hcm
From the history you are giving , it seems to be grade 1 burns that have been caused due to heating pad. You must stop using the heating pad on his back and consult your Plastic Surgeon or post his pictures, along with his HB1Ac levels tha will tell about his blood sugar maintenance levels in past few months.
