Please tell me how to stop or treat the raised, brown, velvety skin spots caused by diabetes? Thank you

Treat diabetes: The usual treatment for acanthosis nigricans (velvety skin spots) is to treat the underlying disease, that is diabetes and obesity, if the patient is obese. The better the control of blood sugar and the less obesity, the higher the likelihood that the acanthosis will be lessened. There are specific treatments, for which you should see a dermatologist.

Rashes: Rashes and skin lesions are tough to diagnose over the computer if not impossible. Have the area looked at by your Dr. To get an official diagnosis and assure it is not something that needs to be treated.

Just noticed a new, very small, slightly raised spot that looks like a freckle that appeared overnight. I just tried new skin care, could this be why?

Just noticed a new, very small, slightly raised spot that looks like a freckle that appeared overnight. I just tried new skin care, could this be why?

No: That raised bright red spot with sharp margins likely would have happened anyway & will lead to a freckle. You will probably see others as well. If you still have concerns, send us a picture, or see a clinician locally. Hope that helps.

Sudden red spot on my back, skin is raised but not itchy?

See a dermatologist: Dermatology, or the examination of skin is predominantly visual. There are many diagnoses that can be a red mark on the skin. Often times if it is not clear clinically the dermatologist will take a biopsy to aid in the diagnosis. Therefore, it is important to have that lesion examined.

Bacteria on skin: In some cases, scratching an itchy rash, insect bite or other skin irritation can cause a skin break. Sometimes this allows, the normal bacteria on our skin or bacteria from the nails to penetrate the skin layers and cause slight infection. Skin Irritation or infection may result in hardening or changes in the color of the skin. New changes or bothersome changes should be evaluated by your physician.

Must be seen by uro: The red spots on the scrotum are usually small hemangiomas (collection of blood vessels), they can bleed with friction from under clothing. Small warts, small mole or skin tags are a possibility, I would suggest that you should see a urologist or a dermotologist.

A wart?: Particularly if you mean the skin tone referred to as "white, " but may be even if looking like snow-white. No pain/itch can go with that as well. Should get it checked in case you are at risk of sharing it, or if anything else may have been shared with you! (be safe, use condoms!).

Lost pigment: This means that you have lost the pigment cells. I'm not certain why and your best bet is to discuss with your physician about seeing a dermatologist. It may not be anything dangerous but at this point I can't tell you what I think it is

Get checked.: If you have new bumps on your penis, get checked, it might be nothing or it could be genital warts or other things, but it's impossible to be sure without an examination. Always use protection.

I had a boil in November on the lower back of my head, bad-smelling clear pus came out when I squeezed it, then it healed. Now I have a reddish raised bump in that spot. What could this be/what should be done, if anything?

Skin care: 60 year old gentleman with history of a skin infection versus cyst. You should visit a dermatologist in the office to examine your skin. It is possible that this is a self-limited skin infection or infected follicle or it could be a sebaceous cyst which has lining that will elaborate keratinous grummus until that lining is scraped. Your dermatologist will be able to evaluate this for you.
