My son, 29 years of age, has dark patches that started just on his side, but are now spreading all over his body. He is half Italian, and dark skinned anyway, but these large patches of skin are noticably darker. They appear and feel somewhat raised, as if the skin is thicker there, but no itching or rash.
Any idea what this could be?? He has no insurance and can't afford to see a doctor at this time, and we would like to know if it sounds like something that could be threatening to his health and well being.
It doesn't sound threatening. It may be a superficial fungus infection young people get (noncontagious, by the way.) Have him try applying Selsun Blue (over-the-counter) shampoo to the dark spots, leave it on overnight, and wash off in the morning. Repeat this for 7 days. If it doesn't clear up, he should show it to a physician when he can.
I have dark brown spots on my face and I have tried all kinds of lotions, creams, vitamin e, I even used a home remedy from a friend and it burned my face, it is embarrasing and I just don't know what this could be. I noticed this after I had a hysterectomy back in 1997 I am 29 years old and I need to know what to use on my face so these blemishes will go away.
I have a skin disease known as morphea and I would like some information on this disease. It has grown on my left side for the past 20 years and the brown patches are a lot bigger now then they were 10 years ago.
