Just below my right eye have appeared 3 very small spots…

Customer Question
Just below my right...

Just below my right eye have appeared 3 very small spots that are raised minutely (not so easy to see but I can feel them if I run my finger over them.) Two dermatologists have checked them: the first doctor planned to operate w/o doing a biopsy, the second doctor said I should have a face peel. I chose to follow neither doctor's advice. Im concerned that it's something but don't want to let a doctor who seems either incompetent and arrogant or who wants to peel my skin. Im 80 years old and concerned. Thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

No changes on my skin or nails except the spots that seem to have popped up overnight a month ago.

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

I lived in the sun for years as a young woman, lots of tanning. I have a brownish tinge to the skin at the edge of my right eye that I asked a doc about, he said he would remove it in an operation. I declined.

Is that it?
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

I'm just asking if the skin over the small spots appears normal

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
