Apologies I was not online over the weekend. Please take come pictures and upload them here and I'll take a look.
If you can transfer the photograph to your computer then the fastest way to get a picture to me is to upload it directly to the question box. You can also upload them to any free photo hosting site like picasa or photobucket and send me the link if you prefer.
Or you can email the photographs to***@******.*** with my name (For Dr Nair dermatology expert) in the subject line but they usually take a few hours to forward these to me. If you choose this option please make sure you ask for an acknowledgment from JustAnswer that they have received your mail, and let me know that you have sent it. Please note that you must send this from the same email address you registered with justanswer.
