See your doc: Describing dermatologic phenomenon is an exercise in futility. I would take him in and have these looked at. There are a number of innocent possibilities, and a few not so innocent, but a trained professional can identify them readily. ...Read more

Depends: If he has been coughing or vomited recently and every spot is above the nipple line, these spots could be benign coughing peteciae.

I have purple veins behind my right ear all coming from one spot. It is also a bit painful, what could this be?

Incompetent vein: It is hard to say without seeing it but this is often due to a small vein that has leaking valves. This causes it to have too much pressure and the smaller veins connected to it enlarge. It can be treated quickly with a 940nm laser. ...Read more

Alopecia: Juan. It seems to not be normal. There are some forms of hair loss that area autoimmune - meaning your body is attacking the hair follicle. A fungal infection can also cause spotty hair loss but usually itches and is associated with flaking and redness. Sometimes this hair loss is confined to the beard of scalp areas (alopecia areata) and can be treated with injectable or topical steroids. ...Read more

I had sun burn on the top of my ear and it has pellets but there are small tiny brown spots they do not look bad but I am still scared ?

Don't worry, check: Is it a recent sunburn? If so, it's probably just healing skin. But if it has been a while, or you've had many others in that area, you need to see a dermatologist to rule out skin cancers. Either way, it's a good idea to let the dermatologist see you since you spend time in the sun. ...Read more

What should I do if I have poison ivy behind my ear and keep finding spots on my face, what is the fastest way to get rid of it?

What should I do if I have poison ivy behind my ear and keep finding spots on my face, what is the fastest way to get rid of it?

Unusual: It is unusual to have poison ivy confined to behind the ears and face. I wonder if you actually have an allergic contact reaction to costume jewelry (ear rings ?) instead. If you apply perfume behind your ears, this can be another potential contact allergen. See a dermatologist if this fails to resolve. ...Read more
