Color me brown.: If you think about it, brown discoloration can be caused by only a few things. The brown can be the color of a contaminate such as soil, dye in socks or shoes. The color can be from natural pigment cells located in the skin. My money is on discoloration from pigments in blood. The blister may have caused some blood fluid leakage under the skin and stained the skin brown. ...Read more

Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?

Maybe: This could be mrsa. It might not be. As long as you've got no fever, there's no penetrating trauma, it's not expanding, and it's not very painful, it is reasonable to see what it does over the next couple of days. Warm epsom salt water soaks, dial soap and water scrubs, and maybe some topical antibiotic ointment would be my home treatment if the above criteria are met. ...Read more

Poison oak or ivy?: That's a tough one! Depending on where you live and what you have been doing, any number of causes might explain your symptoms.

Maybe try a topical hydrocortisone cream and see if that helps. If not, then a more detailed history and exam are in order. Good luck! ...Read more
