Tinea Corporis: In the absence of other systemic symptoms, the spots could represent tinea corporis. Check out this link and see if they resemble your description: http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/ss/slideshow-scabies-overview. ...Read more

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

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

After excessive use of a heating pad to treat cramps I have gotten brown spots on my stomach. This was over a year ago and are not gone. What do I do?

Need diagnosis: A heating pad should not cause brown discoloration on the skin that have lasted for over a year. A visit to a dermatologist either in person or though a virtual visit on healthtap is advised. Once a cause is determined then a treatment plan can be designed. ...Read more

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

Meds: 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. ...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
