Question: Hey doctor,
Recently I noticed this black spot on the right side of my throat and I was just wondering if this is something I should get checked out by my doctor? It kind of came out of nowhere and I just noticed it yesterday and I don’t really stay out in the sun that often and usually wear sunscreen if I am. I have attached an image of it let me know what you think and signs I should watch out for?

Also another thing I have come down with a cold and I was wondering what the best way's to prevent my ear from clogging up since I am quite prone to that happening with previous history of colds?

Brief Answer:
Pseudofolliculitis, apply topical antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and reviewed the attached photographs.
It seems to be a healed lesion of pseudofolliculitis.
It is nothing serious.
I would recommend you to apply a topical antibiotic like neosporin ointment or benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the affected area twice daily for 7-10 days.
This should resolve it.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

I have had a rash for almost 2 months now. It started with a small area on my back and moved to the right side of my chest. Now it is on both sides of my chest, scalp, hairline, sides of nose and temples. It is red, raised and did weep for a bit. Now it burns and itches. Treatments have included Neosporin, Cortaid, keflex, steroid cream, which made it spread, prednisone pack which it was clearing with that but when it was done it came back and an inconclusive skin biopsy. The only thing I have done that is different from normal was have a breast biopsy with an implanted clip. Please help me as I am miserable
