Over a month ago i suffered a severe sunburn, I am now notcing on one spot (top of right shoulder) now has a small mole ans a bunch of little pimples.

Sunburn: We always say that the change in the skin which stays around regardless of treatment or nontreatment really needs to be seen. The description of your symptoms and lesion really don't line up as a problem which is easily identifiable without looking at the patient. I feel bad that we cannot make a diagnosis on a lot of patients because we really need to use our eyeballs to know the diagnosis! ...Read more

I have a blue spot the size of a freckle on my arm, and I've just now noticed it. What could this be?

Blue Spot: If you don't recall trauma or anything specific in the area it is most likely a mole. Depending on the depth of the pigment cells in the skin, some moles can have a bluish color. If it is new, enlarging, or itching it is best to have it checked by your dermatologist. ...Read more

Sexually active?: It depends upon whether or not you have been sexually active. If you have been having sex then you need to see a doctor and get an exam to make sure you do not have an infection. If you have not been sexually active then it may just be a small cyst. If it is a cyst then will probably go away on its own in a few weeks. If it does not go away then see a doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Possible BXO: Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans looks like a white patch which starts at far end of foreskin & can be due to or cause phimosis (tight foreskin) & also affect penile glans starting at the urinary meatus (opening). Would need to be seen by urologist & indication for circumcision. Would be easier to diagnose & advise if you send a photograph. It would remain private & confidential. ...Read more

Suction or friction: can both cause a lesion that looks like a hickey. Possibly a bug bite? As a pediatrician, it is not uncommon to see lesions like this on children's faces from pushing a cup or open bottle top against the skin. ...Read more
