Hello, I just noticed today that I have 4-8 circular purple spots on my right ear, but it doesn't hurt & no pain.

Should I go to the doctor?

?probably: If the spots go away within the week, then no worries, It could have been a dermal allergic reaction. If they persist however, or grow rapidly, you need to see a dermatologist. It is probably benign, but you don't want a melanomatous process to get started. ...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

What could cause me to have two flat red spots behind my right ear? Not painful or itchy

What could cause me to have two flat red spots behind my right ear?  Not painful or itchy

Most commonly: these would be little patches of inflammation/irritation, but without being itchy it is less likely to be an allergic or inflammatory reaction. Perhaps they are petechiae which can result when tiny blood vessels called capillaries burst under the skin. They can be caused by injury/trauma. OK to watch for a few days. If more develop, become painful or irritated, see your Doctor/Dermatologist. ...Read more

My son is 3 years old and today he has loads if pin prick purple spots all round face neck and chest and on ears?

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

Im now getting white flat spots on my skin, i also hear a swooshing sound in my right ear all the time, daily pain between my ribcage, short in breath?

See your doctor.: This constellation of symptoms should be evaluated by your doctor. The rib pain and shortness of breath could be a pulled rib muscle, but there are other possibilities. Your ear needs to be examined to rule out an infection or foreign body. I can't even help with the white spots, without more information. Let your doctor do a proper examination. ...Read more
