Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. Can you post a photo of the area please so we can look at it?
How do I do this??
Are you an dermatologist? Because I have other skin problem all over my legs...
Take a photo with your digital camera and download it to your desktop, then click on the paper clip icon and locate the file ( on your desktop) and hit enter
Do you see the paper clip icon?
Its above the box you write in here
I am down loading this picture
ok, thank you
My computer is actin out. I can put the picture in my destop
Where does it want it to save to?
That is ok... as long as you make a note of where it is so that when you click the paper clip you can find the photo to send it
I think goe automatically to picasa
I can't find the picture
Can you describe what it looks like? Does it itch?
The spots are a little bit thicker
Where is the area? your arms?
Is it upper arms?
The spots are in my right hand
Also the same spot starting be visisal in my left hand
I am sorry for my spelling
Does it look like this?
Not so light lika that
but that type of pattern?
Kind like this
But this seems to me too light
That is a picture of something called Vitiligo, which is a skin condition where there is a loss of brown color (pigment) from the skin causing lighter areas on the skin.
I am not saying this is what you have...but the picture I showed you is vitiligo
Does this vitiligo goes onto your arm?
Treatment is usually the cream that your Doctor prescribed for you, yes it can go up the arm as well
Here is a link to read more about it so you can compare:
Also does this vitiligo goes on to other part of your body??
It can, but not always
Some people will have a lot of areas while others may only have a few
So the brown spot that I am havin behind my leg don't have anything to do with
You have a different Darker area on your leg?
The Cream the Doctor gave you will lighten the skin around the whiter areas so it blends better and won't be so noticible
Those darker areas does itch!
Did you show those to the Doctor as well?
Skin darkening can be due to alot of reasons, are the areas flat or raised?
what did he say the legs ones were?
I don't remember the dermatologist saying nothing. He gave me a cream which it help.but it came back again this year..
Is it on the lower legs only?
I can not see the picture well but it seems like it. Maybe a little bit darker
What I showed you is dark areas due to poor circulation
The same cream he gave you for your arm can be used on the darker spots, if the Doctor recommends you to do so
Maybe that is why I only get this behind where the leg fold
No, The cream was different name I can;t remember
Ohhhhhhhhh, behind the leg fold may be a fungal rash..this is a common place to get it. Try this...purchase some over the counter Anti Fungal cream..such as Tinactin or Lotrimin and follow package directions, if it is a fungal rash, this will take care of it for you.
I will try that to see if will help.
Do you know why we get fungal infection behind our legs?/
The first time I got those rush was not in the leg fold This year I got it again and is also appearing in the lower leg.
yes, because every body is exposed to fungus all the time..it's everywhere..when we sweat and the area gets irritated , the fungus will grow in the irritated area.
I hope this information has helped:-)
Yes, It has help a little.
Thank you so much
