Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be they are Hemangioma which is abnormal buildup of blood vessels in the skin. Small hemangiomas which are not causing any symptoms are left Untreated. Large Hemangiomas which are symptomatic can be treated with steroid injections and LASER Therapy.
Kindly get her examined by a Dermatologist for further evaluation.

Good Luck.

I have 3 questions. 1) How do I get rid of a severely painful/bruised/infected ingrown hair? 2) I have a handful of ?postules? (basically zits that I can feel under the skin on my face, they just look like bumps and have no colored tip) I get white out of them if I get annoyed enough with them being there and squeeze them, but they never go away. Can I/how do I get rid of these? 3) I break out on occasion (not often but I am ocd and tend to try to get rid of any imperfections I spot without being able to just ignore them). Lately and most often an attempt at popping what is clearly a white head (or is working on becoming one) leaves behind a hard black swollen spot. Am I correct in assuming that this is probably me messing up and causing the zit to pop under my skin? Therein leaving the scab/dried blood just under the surface of my skin? If not then what is it and either way how can I get rid of them?

My query is to a dermatologist. My Name is Mrs. Nair, age- 38 years, female. My problem is listed below:

In 2006 April I started having hyper pigmentation on my face, neck and upper back. I consulted a specialist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore and underwent blood test. As per the blood test my IGE (immunoglobin E) was 460, high above normal. Therefore, I underwent a patch test and the result of the patch test said I was allergic to PPD and some parabens. So my problem was diagnosed as hyper pigmentation due to contact dermatitis. I had used hair colour since February 2006 and as per this result I completely stopped using the same. I underwent chemical peeling, micro dermabrasion and laser treatment subsequently. My facial skin improved a bit, but not much. I had to shift to Egypt on official assignment and here again I consulted two dermatologists. They suggested a skin biopsy for Macular Amyloidosis and a biopsy was done. As per the biopsy report "bundles of collegen found in the dermis and slightly reactive to congo red staining. diagnosis: Amyloidosis."I do not have any itching on the skin except sometimes which i take as due to dryness. Can you please confirm what is my condition? Is there any treatment for this? I would really be grateful for your reply as I cannot consult a doctor from India face to face now as I am still in Egypt.

Hi, I underwent a laser hair removal session (IPL) around 10 days back. Subsequently I noticed patches of dark marks on some parts of my leg. The doctor who did the procedure said its hyper-pigmentation and has prescribed HH lite for the marks. My next session is due in 4 weeks and I'm concerned if the cream is effective enough to treat the hyper pigmentation in that time period. Can HH lite treat marks so quickly?

I have an anul tag/prolapse that I want to have removed by laser. Is this the best method to have a better cosmetic finish there, as the tag is affecting my sex life. And who can do this operation, my hemorroid doctor who says the tag is a result of a prolapse of a hemmoroid he removed 10 years ago, or a plastic sugeon? Can it be done under local anaesthetic? Thank you in advance
