I am a 59 yr old female and have developed darker blotchy skin on my neck. I avoid sun now but over the years have had several sunburns to my face and shoulders. I am Type 2 diabetic, taking glucophage. I have had a complete hysterectomy and am on 2 different HRT meds. What has caused the blotchiness and how can I prevent further problems and treat what I already have?

Hello, my name is Kristiyan and i m a 19 years old. I have this problem whenever I get nervous, tired or sad, red blotchy marks appear on my chest , face and arms. It started about 3 years ago, it is really annoying and it itches alot and the only way to get it away is to stop thinking about it, but that s really hard. I ve asked a couple of doctors, but they all say it s allergy and i m pretty sure it s not , because all the prescriptions they gave me never helped! I ve also read alot of forums and from what I understand other people with sensetive skin have it too, but no one seems to know how to get rid off it! I would really appreciate if you can help me with this.

my 4 year old daughter has a mild skin rash on her face (primarily nose and forehead), a little on her neck and on her stomach. They are just bumps, not red or irritated looking, and shes not itching or bothered by them at all though. I did just notice, though, that she has 2 canker sores on the inside of her bottom lip also. What do you think this could be coming from and does she need to be seen? Thanks

I have oily skin and dry skin at the same time. My skin is usually oily but once i wash it, it becomes dry. Then i use a light moisturizer. Once i do that my skin starts looking oily.
