Dear Kalliclark..Does recently suggest a week, month or..history am afraid needs to be specific. Having said that, if your particular 'pink spot' does not itch, bleed, or have any change in shape or sudden growth spurt, then you have nothing to fear. Try out a steroid-antifungal combination cream for 3-5 days & it should sort itself out. Ideally you should consult a dermatologist if it does not help & if you are constrained by insurance costs et al & have the capacity to upload an image of the region, you may want to click a photograph before treatment & 5 days later & consult mois online through this web portal by asking for a specific consult...would be much cheaper than any consult in your country & hopefully will be able to give you a cure. cheers..& Godspeed Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD, Dermatologist, Bangalore, India.
