Could be normal: As we get older, we get more "spots" on our skin, including the scrotal area. Because normally skin here is 'wrinkled-up' and we usually don't check down there daily, seeing some darker spots can be worrisome. Stretch/flatten it out to see what it looks like. If u are certainly sure this is new, consult doc to have it checked. The picture here=normal scrotal skin with brown bumps. Good luck. ...Read more

Acne dark marks and small bumps on skin. Help needed?

Acne dark marks and small bumps on skin. Help needed?

Prevent new marks: The key is preventing new lesions. You owe it to yourself, the people you work for, and those who care about you to manage your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in a few weeks, your physician can add spironolactone, the oral contraceptive pill, or an antibiotic. Time fades pigmented lesions; a depigmenting agent may help or may simply cause more of a mess. ...Read more

What is a good cream I can use to get rid of the dark marks & razor bumps on my skin?

Best results with 2+: You probably have a combination of folliculitis and post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. You will likely need an antibiotic ointment to help clear the folliculitis initially, but an exfoliating cream (ex glycolic acid) used daily and after shaving can help prevent it in the future. A bleaching cream (ex hydroquinone) and a steroid cream can help with the dark spots. ...Read more

Hello this is embarrasing but the inside of my buttcheeks is turning a very dark colour and there's small bumps that feel like knots under the skin?

Tricky: Without an exam, I can only give general information and inflammation generally causes increased pigmentation/scarring. The areas of the body that have a lot of moisture, irritation, rubbing and germs can get infected and have abcesses that are quite serious and need minor surgery or they just get (much) worse.
cannot say in your particular case, but generally true. ...Read more

Time to go...: A small recurrent tender spot might be an oil gland that's starting to get infected, or even the beginnings of something worse.
Probably the safest thing is to consult a dermatology practitioner.
Its also generally safe to kill off local skin cells etc by freezing...they sell kits to do this over the counter.
Or you could just watch and wait. And see your PCP if it continues. ...Read more
