Will Moisturizer Help Make My Mole Disappear
Medical check up?: Any mole that has scales or appears dry and irritated should be examined by a physician. If it is a brown or black lesion, look at its borders. If it is changing in size or color or gets elevated, these are signs of concern as a mole can turn into a melanoma in which case it has to be removed before it gets out of control. Get a medical check to be sure. ...Read more

I’ve had a few 2mm moles on my arm right next to each other sometimes get what seems like eczema on them. Had this before on a different tiny mole. Moisturizing cream for a few days clears it up. Eczema patches on arm as well Cause? Meyerson Nevus?
Likely just eczema: Any mole that changes from time to time should be examined by a dermatologist, but it sounds like you have dry skin or generalized eczema on your arms and then sometimes get it on top of the moles as well. A Meyerson nevus does get an eczema type reaction, but more likely to be a halo type around the mole and larger, over 1 cm. Routine use of lotion is a must for those with eczema or atopic derm. ...Read more

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?
Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone. If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more

I had a mole on my temple until my 16th. It disappeared and grey hairs started growing from there. Mole is gone and grey hairs are still there, normal?
Probably: The pigment that causes malls to be dark is called melon. It sounds like the mole lost the ability to produce melanin and that's why it "disappeared". This is also likely why the hairs are gray because there's no normal color. If you have not already seen a dermatologist, I would go see one just to make sure that it's not something that needs to be addressed. ...Read more

However, you should not take a chance trying to diagnosis this yourself. Melanoma is a deadly disease and early detection can lead to a cure. Delayed detection can be fatal. ...Read more
