Thanks for writing in .
Pigmentation can be due to tanning and sun exposure. Also a few factors like a anemia ,liver disease etc.
Have done your hemoglobin level recently?
Do you have outdoor job?
Are you on any drugs?

My advise to you would be -
To avoid sun exposure and use good quality sunscreen like suncross 50 during day time over face and sunscreen body lotion of SPF 15 over body.
Also take vitamin C containing food like lemon juice daily .also you can take tab .Limcee 1 daily.
Also you can take tab.oxytard one daily.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for follow up.

Hi again XXXXXXX
Avoid any unintended sun exposure. Even one day sun exposure can cause tanning and darkening.
Suncross 50 sunscreen is good for face. Also a sunscreen of SPF 30 like sper sunscreen is good for body.Use full sleeves clothes.
Take one fruit per day.
Drink lot of water daily.
Hope this helps.

Hi Dr, I am a 45 year old male with a history of factor five laden. But have been off my warfarin for more than 3 years on doctor's advice. Haven't had any additional problems in the last few years, however, the last few days I have a sore lower inner thigh, running from under my groin to knee as a red sunburn or rash that is sore to touch (feels bruised). It has grown from a small patch to the knee in the last two days. The muscle also feels sore. I cycle and did so on Fri and Sat (the bruising feeling started Sat morning) I had originally thought the bruising pain was from my young son kicking my thigh with his shoes on but it seems to be getting worse. Other than that I feel no other symptoms. Can you give me some advice? Thanks

I have what I believe is a brown recluse spider bite on my right shoulder next to my armpit. This happened early Friday morning. I developed a bright red rash like a really bad sunburn Friday night all over my body. I went to the ER Saturday because I was dizzy, had nausea, and red. They prescribed meds for allergic reaction. It started to lesson in redness but this morning. It was just as bright red and has stayed that way all day. I now have purplish spots on my stomach and what look to be blisters on the left side of my stomach.
