I have these tiny red dots on upper left arm. As far as I know they came overnight. I had an iron of 8.5. Is it related? Picture should be in file.

I have these tiny red dots on upper left arm. As far as I know they came overnight. I had an iron of 8.5. Is it related? Picture should be in file.

See answer: Unlikely tiny red dots are related to iron deficiency. Not possible to be more specific without a visual. I don't have access to any prior photo's. Condition unlikely to be serious but if the rash increases have it checked. Fee free upload photo's in a Health Tap consultation. Need sharp images in good focus and also a close up.>http://bit.

My baby has a red bump on his stomach and some white dry patch looking spots on the back of his arm. It doesn't look like eczem I can send pictures if necessary

It: It may be a fungal or bacterial infection, amongst many other things including eczema. Regardless instead of sending a picture, you should take the baby in to see his doctor. Rashes can be harmless or dangerous, it's very difficult for a mother to know, therefore a medical professional should be the one to make a diagnois or suspected diagnosis after an examination in his/her office. If necessary a dermatologist (skin doctor) can be consulted.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I have dark brown spot on my leg, looks like bruises, they have been there for years they don't hurt but are very dry, see more coming on my arms

Keratoses or Plaques: It would be interesting to note if these spots or rough or smooth; if they have changed shape or color; or have hair growing out of them. The most common benign thing is known as a keratin plaque. I believe skin troubles should always be evaluated in person so that the visual part of this diagnosis can occur. ...Read more

There's a small spot on my arm that's dark brown in the center and has pinkish red ring around it. It's raised, waxy, fingers stick if I pinch it.

Skin lesion: How long has it been there? Has it changed in size, shape, or color? I would suggest not touching it as it can aggravate the site and possibly cause an infection. The other thing you should do is see a dermatologist and he/she can determine whether to remove it and/or biopsy it to get more information. ...Read more

Mexican beer syndrom: Lime juice on the skin when exposed to sun produces brown spots. Will slowly resolve when no longer in sun. Not a disease. The pain is another issue.

Been on birth control that you put in the arm n before I had it insert I just had my period and then off a week n now I've been discharging/bleeding heavy n light dark brown discharge should I get this removed?

No!: It's very common to have irregular periods after insertion of Nexplanon. Your periods may eventually normalize, get less frequent, stop all together, last longer, or you may have intermenstrul spotting throughout the three years of use. However, you will not become anemic, and it provides highly effective contraception. Clinician who inserted it should have counseled you about bleeding changes. ...Read more

I have had nexplanon in my arm for two years now and have had a sudden onset of the following symptoms: dark brown spotting with no bright red blood 3-4 weeks ago and no appetite, tender breasts, fatigue, and hot flashes for the past 1-2 weeks should I w

No worries: It is not unusual to have these irregular hormonal fluctuations with progesterone only devices. It is always good advice to check a urine pregnancy test since that is the reason you are using the Nexplanon in the first place. Once you verify its negative, you know the device is doing its job and so you worry less. ...Read more

Small, circular spotted rash, was red in colour now turning brown over the last few days, slightly raised, not painful. On top of arm. What is it?

Ring shaped rash: Sounds like this could be ring worm- a fungal infection if the skin. It's quite common esp in hot environments, and if contact with kids. You might want to try Clotrimazole 1% or other topical anti fungal cream for 10 days. If that doesn't wipe it out, better show it to a doc for definitive evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
