Small Brown Spots On Hands
I noticed 3 small browner spots on my hands skin that I have never seen or noticed before. Does this mean something bad ? Like skin cancer or ?!?
I have these small brown spots to be specific only two on my wrist and it doesn't hurt or anything and I just recently got it?
Unsure/unseen: The 2 spots need more explanation and very difficult to say without seeing them. If not painful, no bleeding or other injury to the area it could be a normal little skin change but most important is to watch them closely and if remain and get bigger or sore then see a health professional to evaluate the area. Hope this is helpful and all goes well. ...Read more
I woke up today and found small brown spots in a cluster, about 3 inches big, on my forearm near my wrist. This literally happened overnight.Diagnosis?
Impossible to tell: For sure without actual examination. But if is sudden onset and localized to a 3 inch area, it is most likely something that happened to your skin locally. For example, contact dermatitis, insect bite, local irritant. If it spreads to other areas of the body, you must look to systemic disorders. Go to dermatologist if it persists. ...Read more
