If one or two creams does not work, you will need to see a skin specialist for biopsy and treatment. ...Read more

Some dermatologists say this is often the first symptom. It may not be serious at all, but no one can make this diagnosis from a photo. You are young and shouldn't take any chances with this horrible sneaky disease. You should be seen. ...Read more
