I have itching on the sides of my abdomen only and then hyperpigmentation occurs as dark spots in the same area. Why is this happening?

Sometimes scratching: Itchy spots results in that area becoming hyper pigmented...a persistent stimulation of skin cells. It is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Other causes could be a fungal problem called tinea versicolor. Acanthosis nigracans is a hyper pigmentation problem but tends to occur in skin folds. Try moisturizing more and possible OTC cortisone cream. If persists, consult a Dermatologist:) ...Read more

I see spots of blood when I urinate I have been having frequent urination for a couple months (pain free) but I now sometimes have random pain in my lower right side of my abdomen I also see blood (light pink in color) when I wipe myself after urination.

2: 2 weeks should be okay, however if your pain becomes severe, you can go to the emergency room. Also, any increase of bleeding, or signs of bright red blood need to be assessed immediately.
Blood in the urine, along with lower abodominal pain can be attributed to a urinary tract infection or a kidney infection. Aggressive body cleanses can certainly potentiate these infections or cause trauma to your GI tract, kidneys and bladder, due to the flushing nature of the cleanse, if not directed by your doctor.
Be sure to advise your doctor of the cleanses, the location and severity of the pain, how long the pain lasts, what you are doing on onset of pain and how often you notice blood in your urine. Remember, go to the er if pain becomes severe or if you notice bright red blood in your urine. ...Read more

You: You should visit your primary care provider or an allergist to have allergy skin or blood testing done. In the meantime try benadryl, (diphenhydramine) if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Sore, purple bruised big toe to the bottom/side. Now white spots appeared in the centre. Really painful & can't walk properly. Do exercise regularly.?

Down under the toe.: It sounds as though you've managed to injure the toe. Bruising is a sign of underlying tissue damage and steps should be taken to minimize further damage. Exercising should be eliminated until the effects of the injury are under control. Ice compression, elevation and rest are the mainstays of treatment. To remove all doubt, have the toe x-rayed and examined to assess the degree of injury. ...Read more

I pulled a tick off of my side this morning tonight there was a purple/red spot about an inch long where the tick was do I need to be worried?

What kind of tick?: Many deer ticks [the tiny ones] carry lyme disease. A single dose of 200mg doxycycline or minocycline taken within 72 hours will prevent most lyme disease. You have a local reaction which will heal in a week. Get a dose of antibiotic. If you have repeated encounters with deer ticks, keep a few pills handy so you can easily take 2 at the time of each episode. A Dr or convenience clinic can give you ...Read more

Hi my partners big toenails have turn a dark purple colour and he also has a dark spot on one side of his fourth toe on the left foot.?

Multiple causes: Many medical conditions can cause changes in the nail beds from minor repeated trauma causing "bruising" to dangerous cancerous melanomas. History of trauma, pain and signs of vascular disease should be evaluated. As you suggest the 4th toe has a dark spot, not on the nail, trauma and vascular can be considered, although if the spot on the toe is a "birthmark", photograph and observe. ...Read more
