Light Brown Spots On Baby
Stained brown spots on baby teeth? Our five year old son seems to have these faint brown spots on some of his teeth. We don't let him drink soda or have much sugar, so i'm not sure what they might be. Should we go to the dentist?
Could be...: Could be from either you your child taking tetracycline while teeth forming (they start to form before birth). Could be cavities. Could be from the pigments in the foods he eats. Could be from his vitamins. Could be from the excess levels of Fluoride in the rocky mountain area. Could be from the pigment-producing bacteria that live in our mouths. Absolutely, have your dentist check this out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: If there are only one or two light brown (cafe au lait) spots, this can be normal. However, more than 5 such spots could be an indicator of a genetic disease called neurofibromatosis. These children with more than 5 spots and other symptoms like freckles in their armpits and eye findings need to be seen by a genetics specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Brown spots?: There are many causes of hyperpigmentation. For example, Mongolian spots are common and nothing to worry about. Cafe au lait spots may need to be followed. Ask you pediatrician - since they can actually see the "brown spots" you are referring to they are in the best position to give them a name and let you know the significance. Internet "guessing" is likely only going to cause undue anxiety. ...Read more

I have noticed small light brown spots on the base of my penis these spots have appeared in the last 60 days
I : I wish that i could tell you definitively what's going on, but no one can without examining you and getting a complete medical history including your sexual history. If you're asking this kind of a question on an online forum like this, i suspect that you don't have a primary care doctor, or if you do, you don't feel comfortable asking him/her about this issue. If you don't have access to healthcare because of insurance or financial issues, go to a public health clinic. Almost every public health department has a sexually transmitted disease clinic. The one closest to you is the rockland county std clinic (845) 364-3771. What's going on with your penis may welll not be a sexually transmitted disease, but if it is, the folks there will be more than able to figure it out. They've seen it all, and if they're anything like most std clinics, they're not going to be judgemental. If you do have access to healthcare and don't feel comfortable talking to your physician about something like this, get a new one! in my experience, most of these issues are nothing - normal skin tone variation, freckles, etc. But if it is something like genital warts (which are incredibly common and nothing to be ashamed about) you want to get it taken care of. If, it's something more serious like a melanoma (which is incredibly rare - you've got a better chance of winning the lottery then getting struck by lightening) it would be a terrible shame to not get that diagnosed early because of embarrassment. So, get it looked at! and if you don't feel comfortable being completely honest with your doctor, find another one. It's not a doctor's role to judge or try to change your behavior. My role is to listen to you, evaluate your health problems and risks, and give you the information you need to make decisions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
