I'm 18 & I have had eczema all my life & I've noticed that n certain parts of my body where I have a rash it looks like a bruise. Can it be skin cancer?
Eczema is quite: Difficult to treat. If it were me I'd try eliminating all dyes and fragrances from my life and/or try eating wheat free. Skin cancer is extremely uncommon at 18 but not impossible. Does it look like a bruise or on closer inspection, or is it more brownish? Sometimes areas that have been inflamed (eczema) turn brown afterwards. If you have a family history of melanoma, see MD. O/w no diagnosis ...Read more
