Post inflammatory: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration often occurs. With time, the site will usually resume normal coloration to match the surrounding skin. Normalization may happen faster with good skin care with hypoallergenic washes and moisturizers. ...Read more

Light brown flat spot on right side of head near hairline not perfectly round but kinda symetrical about the size of a pencil eraserwhat could it be?

Nevus?: Sounds llike a brown nevus, or what people call a "birthmark". It sounds like it is flat, small and does not have discoloration or different colors or dark colors in it. These are all good characteristics and you should not worry about this lesion too much. However if it grows over time, if color changes, if it becomes raised, then consult physician. ...Read more

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

A couple things: These can be a type of mole called melanotic macules or early skin growths of seborrheic keratoses. These are completely benign & tend to happen more in some people versus others. There is a small possibility that these could be early flat warts. Seborrheic keratoses & warts would become more raised over time. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure they aren't warts. ...Read more

Dark spots: The biggest concern abotu dark spots on the skin is melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer. While this is very rare on the penis, it can happen. You should have this checked by your doctor. It is not safe to render an opinion on the nature of such spots without actually taking a look at it. ...Read more

After I had liquid nitrogen on my face, & peeled of the scab, I exposed from sun, the spot turned dark brown. What can I do to make it lighter?

Bleaching cream: Usually this type of postinflammatory hyperpgimentation will fade over time as long as you protect it from the sun. If this doesn't help, then a mild bleaching cream may be helpful. It is called hydroquinone and is only available by prescription. See a dermatologist and they can help you. ...Read more

It's been almost 2 years that I'm having a blister kind of spot on penile head. It started with a tiny brown spot and then developed few more. Later it formed a shape like 'V'. Initially I started with Fucidin ointment but no improvement.

Rash: Hi, it’s hard to say without a picture but there is a great app that may be able to help you get a diagnosis without being seen in person by a dermatologist. The app is called VisualDX and is one of the best, if not the best out there. Many clinicians, including myself, use it. Just snap a photo and it gives you a list of possible diagnoses. Good luck! ...Read more

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. No pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Probably not serious: For sure this isn't herpes. I suppose it could be HPV, but a new HPV lesion would be rare at your age of 39. There are many possibilities, and the large majority of skin problems of teh penis are not STDs and aren't serious. Since two doctors apparently aren't certain, consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

Itchy scalp, left swollen occipital and behind the right ear node and now sensitive light brown spot on left top of head today.?

Swollen lymph nodes: Lymph nodes often swell in response to infection or inflammation. These gland may feel tender behind the ear or beneath the angle of the mandible. You may also feel tenderness beneath the chin. If the light brown spot has been sensitive for a short period, it will likely resolve on its own. It may simply be an abrasion or pustule. Give it time. If it fails to resolve, see derm doctor ...Read more

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis. I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis. I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

Brown or Deep Purple: Yes. It might be a birthmark (congenital nevus) or a simple mole (nevus).Be sure it doesn't change in shape, size, color, & the edges are not jagged. If so go to the Doctor.
But, it might be a tiny bruise that would fade away. It might be an Angiokeratoma of Fordyce: tiny benign (not cancer) bump of blood covered with skin, they stay forever, you may get more on scrotum, if bleeds, put pressure. ...Read more

I have a brown spot about 1/16" on my labia minora, I do have freckles on my face, arms and a few on my legs. I'm 13. Should I be worried?

Pigmented lesion: No, I do not feel you need worry. However I recommend that you see a dermatologist (you can choose to see a woman) to have a proper examination of the lesion. Most likely this is a "labial melanotic macule" based upon your description and your age...but do see a doctor! ...Read more

Skin findings: It is very hard to diagnose skin lesions over the telephone. If tender you might have an infection. Start with seeing your primary doctor and if needed, a dermatologist.
