A few weeks ago I noticed a strange discoloration near my eyebrow. Then 3 days ago the same thing is near my other eyebrow. It doesn't hurt or have a different feel to it. I am 45 but I think I am too young for age spotting on my face. Or am I?

Brief Answer:
Suspect low platelet count

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear.Thanks for sharing the attachments.

I suspect a low platelet count(thrombocytopenia) and do a Complete Blood Count (CBC) to rule out the same.

I would like to know if you may have such discoloration or tiny red spots anywhere on your body?
Do you any history of frequent bleeds (nosebleed etc)?

In the absence of this, it is equally important to rule out Seborrhea which can be confirmed by a KOH smear.

Hope this answers your query.
