Question: I have a group of freckles on my neck that look as I'd my neck had been cut and I've haemorrhaged freckles down to my shoulder and then they fade away. I don't know of anyone else with this same freckle formation should I be seeking my family doc for further investigation? All freckles look normal no malignancies just a weird formation along the dermatome almost

I was born with this it has not changed due to sun exposure except I may get a few more along my shoulder during the summer but nothing significant

Brief Answer:
Looks like naevus spilus, can be treated with laser treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and reviewed the attached photograph.
It seems you are having naevus spilus.
It is a type of naevus which presents with freckle like pigmentary spots in a dermatomal distribution.
It can be removed with laser treatment.
You need to consult a dermatologist for the same.

My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
