Depends: If he has been coughing or vomited recently and every spot is above the nipple line, these spots could be benign coughing peteciae. This you can monitor at home .If not and or any spots extend below the nipple line, it could be something more worrisome.If you are not sure, a visit would help rule out any other issue. ...Read more

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

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

Normal skin response: Our skin tries to protect us from the damaging rays of the sun. If your skin on the ears peeled, that means you actually got a deep 1st-mild 2nd degree burn! Your skin didn't like that, so it is making more coloring (pigment from mole cells) to protect the deeper layers of skin from further damage. This frecking is often permanent and is a signal from your body to use sunscreen!!! Take care! ...Read more

I have vitiligo and after turning completely white all over my body, I have been getting brown spots. These spots are particularly pronounced on my ears.

Reappearance : Perhaps this represents partial return of your lost pigment ( melanin) but you should get checked out by a dermatologist since these spots may also skin cancer due to losing protection from the sun from a total loss of skin pigment. ...Read more

The tip of my ears got sunburned it has pealed but there is small brown spots could this be cancer or just a freckling ?

Sunscreen: If the sunburn just recently occurred and this is the first major sun damage to the area it is highly unlikely for any cancerous lesion to be present as the type that is most common (basal cell carcinoma) is the result of repetitive significant sun damage. Monitor the area and be sure to use sunscreen daily of at least SPF 30 and look for one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. ...Read more

Wow!: That must have been very uncomfortable. Were you on any medications then that you are no longer on? It sounds like your symptoms may be resolved now. If not, please resubmit question with an update. It sounds like a medication side effect to me, other than the crusting, which I didn't understand what you meant there. ...Read more
