I burned my face with a curling iron 2 days ago and it left a red brownish mark, there was no blister but how can I let it heal without scarring?

Burn: Although it is difficult to determine without actually seeing the area, if it didn't blister it is likely superficial enough that it isn't likely to scar. It may remain pink for several weeks as it fades. Keep it out of sun or wear sunscreen to prevent hyper pigmentation. If it is raw at all apply antibiotic ointment. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been getting blisters on my vagina, and recently I have noticed a slightly raise brownish dot. I am not sexually active but I am worried it could be serious?

I have been getting blisters on my vagina, and recently I have noticed a slightly raise brownish dot. I am not sexually active but I am worried it could be serious?

Blisters: Blisters on the vagina are worrisome. You could be dealing with herpes. Herpes can be contracted in other ways beside sexual contact, so this still needs to be ruled out. As far as the raised "brownish dot" this could simply be a common mole aka nevus. It is difficult to say without actually examining you myself.
Please see your doctor fo a complete evaluation.
All the best. ...Read more

Blister like bump on the side of my "ring" toe. Not blister. Has two small brown circles same size parallel to each other in the center. Not a wart?

Time will tell: Blisters and skin irritations heal with time, but a wart will hold its ground. Warts are caused by a virus that involves the epidermis. Warts develop a blood supply in the skin. These tend to bleed ever so slightly under the skin forming little dark spots. Warts usually require a treatment to get rid of them. If this is not clearing up in a few weeks, you may want to have it looked. ...Read more

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
