Skin discoloration: should be examined by your doctor. If it is changing in color, texture, temperature and it itches I recommend getting seen as soon as you can. You will likely need a skin biopsy to give you a correct diagnosis and treatment plan! ...Read more

Purpura: Purpura occurs when small blood vessels join together or leak blood under the skin. When purpura spots are very small, they are called petechiae. Large purpura are called ecchymoses. Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more

I have a raised brown flat bump on my right hand its small like a centimeter big and i just want to know if its skin cancer or not.

Probably not: At age 20 it is statistically very unlikely to be cancer. A mole is brown but 1 cm diameter,is a bit large so it is best to have a doctor check it. You may just be reassured or have it removed either for diagnostic or cosmetic reason.It would be guesswork to give an accurate diagnosis online.Take care. ...Read more

A : A brown recluse bite can have different appearances. There can be almost no signs of the bite or there can be a dark escar (scab) with surrounding white tissue (that is dead). In some cases the brown recluse's bite can be necrotoxic and cause very severe damage. It can large amounts of skin to die and can eat into the muscle as well. This type of reaction is usually associated with fever, muscle and joint pain and feeling very ill. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. Brown recluses are actually very little and non-descript looking. If your skin is sloughing off your finger - do recommend that this be medically evaluated. ...Read more
