I just had small...

I just had small, flat reddish brown spots show up on my butt cheeks overnight.

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

There's no itching or discomfort. my boyfriend just noticed them this morning. I'm not sure when they showed up, but it hasn't been more that 2 days.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that i can think of.

Are those pictures clear enough. The spots are mostly on the sides of both butt cheeks and go upwards towards my hips.

Do they hurt or itch?

No. No discomfort at all.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
They literally just showed up overnight. I can't feel them. They are flat and small and round. They almost look like a bunch of small beauty marks or freckles. About the size of a pin head or a little bigger. They are a reddish brown color. There is one red spot that's looks more like a rash and about 10x the size of the rest of them on one side.

do you have a better pic?

maybe zoom out a touch but remain anonymous of course

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.
