Hi. I have dark spots on my face, due to sun damage / sun exposure after a facial. At my dermatologists recommendation i used expigment / locoid / tretin / bepanthen mixture for 10 days then with a brek, another 1 week. I dont see any change. I want to be out inthe sun. Would it be ok? Maybe the sun spots go by themselves? Thanks much! Deniz

Bad sunburn I got a bad sunburn about five days ago and now I m finally healing but while I was getting ready to shower yesterday I noticed dark spots on my back. Since they are on my back I can t see them to well but they look to be dark brown or black. Should this be an issue that is addressed immediately or should I watch it and see if it goes away?

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?

I have a stinging red rash on my left shoulder that I do not know where it came from but has existed for three days now and is causing much discomfort including keeping me up at night. I do not know what it could be nor do I want to go to a doctor for a minor irritation. Any ideas about what could cause this? It is not a place where it could be sunburn but could be a bug bite of some kind since we went camping
