Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be they are Actinic Purpura, Kindly get him examined by a Dermatologist so that he can examine him and rule out the exact cause. They are usually harmless and will subside on their own. He may not need medications if they are confirmed or the Doctor may prescribe him steriod topical preparations. He should be avoiding going out in the sun between 10am and 4pm and use a Sunscreen lotion when ever he moves out.

Good Luck.

My husband had a boil type blister about the size of a grape on his scrotum. It popped and had blood, pus and dark smelling liquid in it. He said he had one before and his doctor told him it was from stress. We had been separated for a week. I am suspecting an STD or genital herpes. What you think?

My husband is diabetic and about 5 days ago he started complaining about some bumps on the inside of his leg that were paining him. He is 65 yr old and this is the 1st time he s had anything like this. It looks like a great big pimple and some of it busted and just dark red blood came out. The one on the inside of his left leg has left a hole about the size of a pea and I put neosperm on it. The one on his left leg did bleed but not bad. Also use alcohol on them to stop the bleeding . What else do I need to do

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.
