Customer Question
I have pink a...

I have pink a few pink spots on my forehead. Some have hard small crust like centers. Just wondering

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I have had these spots on and off for a couple of years. They are about 3mm in diameter with a pin sized crust spot in the middle. There are about 4 of them right now but only 2 have the small spot. These crusty spots come and go but haven't stopped seeing them for a while

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

Not that I can think of.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
