I have for the past couple months developed mysterious brown spots that occur sporatically over my body they itch then scab. Er docs didn't have a clue.?

Probably benign: As we age we often develop itchy, scaly, brown spots in areas of friction and past sun exposure. If we scratch them, the brown can come off and the spots may bleed. If the spots are round/oval, uniform in color and thickness, they may be simple seborrheic keratoses, benign lesions that your doc can remove with freezing. If irregular shape/color, see doc soon for thorough evaluation. ...Read more

Does syphillis cause redish spots that scab over with a white flaky scab?

Does syphillis cause redish spots that scab over with a white flaky scab?

Here are some. .: An ulcerated lesion will heal in time either treated or not treated if the host survives. At the end of expected healing of the ulcerated lesion, a small light-colored scab can be seen and the syphilis evolves to its obscure stage if not effectively treated and followed. So, don't rely on one character alone to decide what it's, but always refer and correlate it with its whole course of manifest. ...Read more

I have a lot of scabs on my face from picking at my spots is there a way to clear them over night?

I have a lot of scabs on my face from picking at my spots is there a way to clear them over night?

NO: No magic answers for clearing scabs overnight. Try not to pick at them and let nature heal them in due time as picking at them will increase the chance of poor healing and scarring. Best wishes. ...Read more

Bug bite? Infection?: Bumps on separate parts of the body may be bug bites and/or may be small boils (skin infections; small abscesses). A visit to one's primary care doctor is needed, as bumps are very hard to describe in words. Antibiotics may be needed, if there are signs of infection. Others causes of bumps are possible, but less likely. If the bumps are mysterious-looking, a dermatologist can examine them. ...Read more

My new tattoo has spots that are too deep. The parts that are deep have a greenish tint and aren't scabbing like the rest. It's been a week. No pain.?

My new tattoo has spots that are too deep. The parts that are deep have a greenish tint and aren't scabbing like the rest. It's been a week. No pain.?

First off, I am not: A tattoo expert, but I got my first one last year...age 65! I'm not sure you can tell if it went too deep...I understand that there can be a little greenish tint initially which fades/disappears. Probably indicates a minor amount of bleeding with normal discoloration of tiny bruise. Not significant that there is no scab. Apparently, rare to go too deep; then risk of scarring. I think you're good:) ...Read more

Shaved my testacles for the first time, and now have 2 tiny dark spots on the scrotum, could this be small scabs? Should I be concerned?

Shaved my testacles for the first time, and now have 2 tiny dark spots on the scrotum, could this be small scabs? Should I be concerned?

Watch and wait: Contrary to current customs, shaving your genitals is unhygienic. You may wait to see if the wounds you inflicted on yourself are healing on their own. If the spots are scabs, those will fall off in a few days.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
