Please, Can I get a a photo image for this!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these spots that you have reported. The description is not typical and making a call without at least seeing what they look like would make the response generic and maybe not helpful. For this reason, I recommend that you upload a picture for inspection. This will help in narrowing down the list of possible causes and providing you with targeted information that would prove helpful in getting answers and a possible solution to this.

I hope you get to do that when chanced. Should you have any difficulties, please talk to the customer service for help.

I am waiting and do look forward to reviewing the images as soon as they get in.
I wish you well.

Dr. Ditah, thank you for the reply. I have uploaded the pictures that you requested. They do not itch or hurt and I should mention that I am diabetic but my diabetes is under control and I am no longer taking any kind of medication for it. My A1C level is 5.2. Again thank you for taking the time to assess my situation.

Hi and thank you for uploading the picture.

I am glad to earn that through dietary measures alone you have been able o maintain an excellent blood glucose control. Keep up.

I have reviewed this image fully. This lesion, though not typical is suggestive of cutaneous HPV presentation. It can be very difficult unless you report to have tested positive for this in the past. If this is not the case, I will suggest that you get a sample sent to the lab for examination. This will return with what the exact nature and cause of this is. A dermatologists would be able to evaluate and get samples for laboratory testing if needed.

There is no emergency in doing so. Plan at your convenience.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to request for more information and clarifications if need be.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

Hi, my dad feels a pain in his stomach where his doctor told him he may have an annurism. He also has a heart murmur. He just tested his blood glucose and it is high, even though he has not eaten in about 4 hours. Is he in any immediate danger of the annurism because of his heart murmur and high glucose level?
