My stool colour is very dark brown with dark brown blakish patches, should i b concerned?

It can be serious: Dark stools can be a sign that you are bleeding somewhere in your gastrointestinal tract (GI system). The stool is black (melena) because the blood has been digested. It can indicate that you have an ulcer or lesion in the tract somewhere. You need to be seen by your PCP or a gastroenterologist. A basic stool test can help. ...Read more

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

Does dark spot corrector work on post acne red marks? Thanks!

No: Usually dark spots corrector is used on dark pigments seen on the hands as women age. Because it is formulated for the spots or lentigos on the hands I would not use it on the face. Acne has an antinflammatory component that aging spots do not have. To avoid possible scarring of the facial skin I would not recommend using it on the face. Follow label directions for safest use. ...Read more

I have a HUGE light brown birthmark on my stomach, along with dark raised moles. I also have new dark freckles appearing randomly. Dermatologist time?

If your birth mark: has never been checked by a dermatologist and you are getting new or different moles, it is a good idea to have a skin check by a dermatologist. At your age, they will probably find that everything is OK, and recommend that you visit them periodically, but it's best to check. ...Read more

3mmx2mm drk brown mole on breast appeared in pg (now 3mo pp) Flat,smooth,even color. It peeled in bath & black skin cameaway. Mole now a bit lighter but still flat&smooth&even. Could this be melanoma?

Possibly: It's really difficult to diagnose skin lesions without examining them. But you describe a black color to the mole, and a relatively quick development over a few months. Those are potential warning signs for skin cancer. A good physical examination, and very possibly a biopsy, would be prudent next steps. Please see your doctor and make those arrangements. ...Read more

Dark spot after acne?

Dark spot after acne?

Postinflammatory: Inflammation of the skin is often followed by darkening that may last for months. All acne can be managed today. If benzoyl peroxide (and/or the oral contraceptive pill for a female for whom it's right) doesn't work, topical Clindamycin or some other medicine from your physician will help. Don't try to treat the dark spot (not worth trouble/ risk) or even give it much thought (no face is perfect). ...Read more
