Raw Skin Areas
How fast can a new freckle appear? I was camping with sunscreen, but the area was also dry, chapped and scabbed. Freckle? Raw skin? How do I know?
Quickly: New freckles can appear within a few hours of sun exposure. Many people who are freckled will notice an increase in both the darkness and the number of their freckles after they've been out in the sun. If the area was scabbed, this could be the cause of the hyper pigmentation rather than the sun. Continue your SPF and if it continues to change or doesn't improve over the next 1-2 wks see a doc. ...Read more

Shave my genitals area few months back, now there is pink, raw, skin on the side of scrotum and leg. Maybe from scratching? Can i restore the color?
Friction Follies: Shaving the skin results in micro-trauma. This dilates tiny capillaries resulting in redness. It also allows micro-organisms to enter more easily and possibly cause infection. The skin in the groin/scrotal region is very sensitive and thin. Hair in this region decreases irritation from friction and sweat. Repeated shaving of the epidermis and hair removal defeats these protective measures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
