Why do I have scaly and dry dark spots in my pubic hair?
User rating for this question
I have multiple dark spots in my pubic hair. They appear to be possibly some type of flat rash. It's a reddish brown color, irregular in shape, and maybe 1/4 - 1/2" wide. It showed up last week, disappeared, and is back this week with more spots. There is no blistering or erupting and they seem to be completely flat. Also, they kind of appear a bit scaly or dry. They are scattered throughout the entire pubic hair region and seem to be isolated to that area. Any ideas?
