I'm new to the forum and not too sure if this question belongs here, however my daughter is 14 years old and is getting browney orange patches of skin over her hands, fingers, face and neck. They are smooth and apparently don't hurt. Her friends have said they look like tan lines, but my daughter does not tan because she is far too pale, after a couple of days the patches disapear. She has problems with her hips and cannot touch them but apart from that she is fine. I don't want to take her down the doctors as I worry they might think I am over-reacting. Any help would be appriciated.
It sounds like she's using some kind of self-tanning cream, doesn't it? I wonder if there's something in her make-up that's causing this. Odd that she only has this on places where her face lotion or makeup would be in contact - her hands, face and neck.
Does she wear a lot of make-up, or anything new recently?
