Thank you for posting your query,

Before I answer your questions I would like to know few important points in regard to the lesions on the nose .
1) Are these spots brown in color or are these skin colored?
2) Are these spots raised above the skin surface or are flat?
3) Any associated symptoms?
4) Do you get pimples?
5) Are you using anything for face?
6) What is you skin color?

Answer to these questions would help me understand your problem better.Even a close up picture of the lesion would help me further.So if you can send me a picture of the lesion on nose ,I would appreciate.
You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.You can also email the same to YYYY@YYYY with “ATTN: ” in the subject line.

I shall address your concern based on your current given information.
With the history what you have submitted ,there seems to be two possibilities.

It could either be Freckles ,which manifests as small brown spots on sun exposed areas.Secondly it could be sebaceous hyperplasia commonly seen in oily skin individuals.

If you can reply me with the answers and the pictures, I would be able to suggest you better.

Awaiting for your reply.

I was severely sunburned as a child, numerous times (42 yrs old now). I never had freckles on my back before the sunburns but developed lots of them over the years. Now I have four spots on my back that appeared as scaly patches, that bleed and ooze and are raised. They are also circled by redness. I have had them for about 5-6 months. Should this be checked for skin cancer?

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Hi I have some freckles-looking spots (reddish brown) that appeared on my inner thighs. The amount of the spots differ on days. Days when i can stay at home and stay cool (fan or aircon) it can significantly subside. Days when i go to work the whole day (at higher temperatures) it seem to cover a bigger area. I had a full blood count and the report is normal nothing unusual. How do i remove the spots? What are the spots?

What I (think that I) know: I know that melanin is a skin pigment that determines how dark or XXXXXXX a person is, and that it's production is somewhat determined by genetics combined with UV exposure. From my understanding, things like freckles,...
