I had gotten brown spots (on my stomach and where my bra wire goes) two months after I had my daughter, they don't look dry or don't itch either.?

Bra rubbing?: Areas where a bra rubs can have some skin inflammation / irritation, after which there may be color changes. Darker spots are called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and lighter ones are called post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. Having any allergic reaction to some component of the bra can cause the same type of color changes. A doctor can check to see if that's what it is. ...Read more

I recently discovered small brown spots on my stomach that was covered by the hair in that region. I'm 22 with no serious medical history. Any ideas?

Probably benign: Small brown spots don't raise urgency to me. Without seeing them, one cannot give good advice, however. There is a good likelihood of this being a benign process, however, there are lesions of "brown" color that could be significant. I would recommend a check by your pcp or a dermatologist at your next exam or if a changing lesion or worried, sooner. ...Read more

Spots: A physician would have to examine these pigmented skin spots in order to diagnose them. The fact that there are more than one and that they're all alike favor a benign entity. For peace of mind, however, get them checked. ...Read more

Keratoses: Keratotic (so-called "stucco") lesions are common on the trunk and elsewhere on the body. They are not dangerous but certainly are annoying. Try an otc lotion, such as lac hydrin or amlactin, with Lactic Acid or salicylic acid in it, to soften the top layer of skin. If those lotions aren't strong enough a dermatologist can prescribe one of a number of stronger preparations. ...Read more

Brown oddly shaped raised spots on my stomach started to appear I am 26 years old and I am concerned what could cause this???

See your doctor: At your age skin cancer is unusual, but you never know. Most skin cancers have characteristic appearances. Your primary doctor should be able to look at it and make the call. Regardless of age a good rule of thumb is that if a skin lesion changes (itches, burn, bleeds, changes size or color) see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a rash on my stomach, it looks like brown spots, its not raised and it does not itch. But gets darker when I take a shower or sweat?

Considering several: A photo or direct exam would be very helpful, but based on your description of a rash that gets more prominent with sweating or a hot shower and your relatively young age - I would consider as a possibility cholinergic urticaria. Recommend a dermatologist to examine http://www. Dermnet. Com/images/cholinergic-urticaria http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/cholinergic_urticaria. ...Read more

Fungal infection: More than likely you have a superficial fungal infection called tinea versicolor. Treat with otc antifungal creams such as lotrimin or micatin (miconazole) twice daily for four weeks then retreat one day a month to keep it from recurring. If this does not work see your dermatologist. ...Read more

Tinea?: Could be a number of things, but the first thing I think of is tinea, or fungal infection of the skin. This propagates in moist environments, and can sometimes cause a pigmentation (tinea versicolor). Consider use of topical antifungals like tinactin (tolnaftate) and if no resolvement, see your doctor. ...Read more
