See dermatologist: Any non-healing skin sore needs professional attention. Odor suggests infection, but that might not be the only problem; infection can accompany other problems. There are several possibilities for this sort of thing, some of them serious, including skin cancer. So don't mess around with it; see a doctor soon, preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more

For a month now  my upperleg  has strange symptoms... My leg looks  like a cheetah. It does not hurt but it looks strange. What can it be.?

Leg rash: If you use a heating pad there a lot it can cause some "cheetah-like" skin changes. If you smoke, you can get some strange skin changes due to blood flow changes. If you were hurt there it could be some kind of weird bruise. Seems unlikely an infection, but they can certainly present in weird fashion. If it's lighter and you have a dark complexion it could be vitiligo. ...Read more

I took out the black bit in my verruca.. will it go away now? I also can't use bazuka bc i ahev circulation problem. what now?

Not necessarily: The "black dots" often seen in warts are not actually the "roots" of the wart as commonly thought. They are basically dried blood from bleeding caused previously by standing and walking on it.If you can't use the salicylic acid treatments, consider freezing them or trying an Rx cream or duct tape regimen. It can take 1 year after tx for the virus to clear your body. Until then, it could come back. ...Read more
