The doctors said I high melanin and because of dryness I take care of my body very well specially for dryness I tried everything all not working
Its hard for me to load pictures

Thank you for that additional information. Of course, when we are discussing an issue with coloring pictures are really, really helpful.......Do what you can.....I'm in no hurry. Actually, It is 6:30ish am here an I have to get ready to start morning clinic so, if you want, just try to load pictures later today and then we can go over them and see if we can figure out what you can do next...

Thank you for the photo.I can see what you mean.It sounds like you have spent quite some time trying to get to the bottom of what is going on. I am sure that your previous doctors have thought of, and ruled out, all of the common and easily treatable conditions that could be causing your issues. Would you say this is a correct statement?At this point I think the best thing for you to do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.In the USA the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and the world. As such I am sure that there is one in the UAE near you.I know that it is going to take significant effort on your part, but I believe that going to one of the "Medical Mecca's" is your best chance to – finally -- get to the bottom of what is going on.Does this make sense to you?I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned the top rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.Thanks in advance,Dr. Rick MD FACS
