I am a teenager and experience bad menstrual cramps. I treat with a heating pad. Ive noticed brown spots on my stomach. what can i do to treat?

Meds

Abdomen
If you use a heating pad for the cramps, you may be causing a reaction in your skin area, even a minor burn, so you need to be careful. There are meds that can help with your cramps. Have a dr. discuss medications for painful menstrual cramps and look at your brown spots on your stomach too. Good luck.

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

Bra rubbing?

Open-uri20121020-17370-2dpfr
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.

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

Stomach
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.

Hi, 6-7 months ago I found these dark brown spots appearing on my stomach, they're mostly in a specific area which is on the left side of my stomach?

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.

i have these weird light brown spots under the breasts and on the upper stomach and neck. What could they be and how do i get rid of them?

Fungal infection

More than likely you have a superficial fungal infection called Tinea versicolor. Treat with OTC antifungal creams such as Lotrimin or Micatin twice daily for four weeks then retreat one day a month to keep it from recurring. If this does not work see your Dermatologist.

Non-itchy/raised brown spots on back, spread to chest & stomach. Biopsy shows overproduction of plasma cells; bone marrow biopsy normal. Next steps?

characterize cells

Parenting
What you report is not definitive. Is this a plasma cell-rich inflammatory process, or is it a multifocal plasma cell tumor? The pathologists can investigate the cells to determine if they are of mixed clonal origin (benign) or monoclonal (meaning all derived form a single parent, usually a sign of a cancer). This can be done by evaluating the surface light chain expression.
