Here are some ...: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive.

So, see urologist timely. ...Read more

If it persists are recurs, you should probably see a dermatologist. ...Read more
