I had Cellulitis on my left leg, it is a slow painful healing process. Is it normal for my skin to turn violet on the part where scabbing has peeled?

Yes: Pigmentation at the site of inflammation is common and it may take many months for the color to fade. If you are overweight, it would help if you could lose some weight. For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have an extreme sunburn. I am on roacutane, 20mg. A week ago I was burnt, skin blistered. Now skin is leathery and started peeling. Is this normal?

Normal yes: Unfortunately Accutane sun sensitizes to quite a degree and makes any burn far worse. We recommend minimal sun exposure when our patients are on it, and then only with significant sunscreen. The peeling will be worse as the burn was worse. Bad for long term skin aging and also skin cancer risk in older age — always avoid burns at all costs. ...Read more

Unusual: It's an unusual and not commonly seen clinical manifestation of mono but it can occur with the disease. It's best to try to avoid peeling it (although I know that's hard!) and let it be. It won't hurt you any more than the other symptoms you may have, other than making sure you protect your spleen at all costs. I wish you a speedy recovery! ...Read more
