Brief Answer:
Localised collection of blood, will slowly resolve

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I have seen the attached picture.
The skin lesion seems to be a bruise. This is basically a collection of blood which can occur due to coming out red blood cells from the blood vessels.
Nothing really needs to be done.
It will change colors and will slowly disappear.
You can take oral vitamin c tablets once a day for rapid healing .
It must have occurred secondary to some trauma, or scratching or sometimes after some insect bite. So there is really nothing to be worried about.
It will resolve in about ten to fourteen days.

I have a strange discolouration on my scrotum and wondering what it is. The affected area is a around 2cm of diameter and is very white in colour, almost like a complete lack of pigmentation. It looks almost like a birthmark as the colour is so different however here is the strange thing, I am 35 and I have never had this mark up until 1 year ago so it is relatively new. There is no itchiness, swelling, redness, or cracking. The skin is otherwise normal. Any idea?

Hello, my sister has a birthmark on her hand and I just noticed a slightly raised black pigmentation on it today. Is this Melanoma from what you could tell from the picture? Thanks

About 12 years ago, I had a benign birthmark/mole removed from the back of my neck that was fairly large (about 2cm diameter) and it healed into a keloid scar; unfortunately, I am unaware of how long it has been there, but I have a solid light (almost cafe au lait) assymetrical spot growing on (but not past the location of) the keloid scar. I have no other symptoms that I m aware of. How unusual is this?

My daughter has what we have assumed was a birthmark since she was a baby. It is a slighty raised bumpy patch of skin ever so slightly darker than her normal skin tone. When she gets hot and sweaty it darkens and seems to raise becoming more obvious and being on her neck looks like almost like a love bite. She is now almost 9 and this has never bothered her. However in the last week I have noticed another patch just the same has now appeared on her back. It appeared itchy at first a week ago but now the itchyness has gone but this patch remains. If they are not bothering her should I take her to the doctor? Age 8 136cm about a month ago 4.5stones

I have a birthmark under my right breast, and lately (the past three months) I have been getting a red, painful rash under only that breast. It comes and goes, and smells strange due to bacteria of some sort I'm sure. What do I Do? My birthmark...
