What if my baby has brown spots on his body?

Brown spots?: There are many causes of hyperpigmentation. For example, Mongolian spots are common and nothing to worry about. Cafe au lait spots may need to be followed.

Internet "guessing" is likely only going to cause undue anxiety. ...Read more

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

Just diagnosed with PCOS.have too many cyst inside and out. Is a hysterectomy my only option. does it cause brown spots all over your body?

No: Medical treatment is definitely an option. Ovarian drilling and wedge resection are also surgical options. Exercise and weight loss can help reverse the hormonal changes too. Insulin resistance is frequently associated with PCOS and insulin sensitizing meds can help and make it easier to loose weight decreasing the risk of developing diabetes. Good luck. ...Read more

Skin biopsy: Ask your Dermatologist if he would think a skin biopsy would be helpful. Is a simple procedure with local anesthetic (like at the Dentist ). Takes a little 3-4 mm of your skin with a sterile instrument and sometimes needs to put 1 stitch, sometimes not necessary, but gives a great amount of information. ...Read more
