Question: 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.

Hello. Just wondering about scalp sores. I started with one and being a general picker, I picked at it and now I have several of them around my scalp. They get thick scabs, hurt and itch. I pick and clear liquid comes out and then blood. Sometimes it feels a little thicker liquid and sticky. I have used bacitracin with not much success and have also used some cortisone cream. Nothing seems to be helping. What else can I try to get these sores taken care of???

I have red itchy skin on the crease of my nose sometimes with red bumps. When the itch has subsided, I have dry patches . Its been like this for the past month and just when I think it s getting better, it flairs up again. It has been a very hot and humid summer. I ve switched to sensive skin face care products and fragrence free laundry soap. I have tried Econazole Nitrate Cream 1% and it seemed to help the itch but not the redness. I had ringworm on my face a few monthes ago that I caught from a rescued kitten. Not sure if its related but thought I would mention...Please help! Thank you

I had some flaky skin ( dandruff ) on one of my eyebrows so I ve been moisturizing more often. Now that the dandruff is pretty much under control, I m left with a really white/light patch above my eyebrow on a tan forehead . I m just wondering if it will be able to tan easily (so I can even out the skin tone) because the skin on that patch feels tougher. I want to make sure it healed properly and won t leave a scar .
