Customer Question
Hello, the heat has...

Hello, the heat has brought brown spots all over my skin and face and what looks like spider vines. Today I jist walked from my car to my house and my skin had little scabs on my arms. Please help

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?

My skin has pigmentation on my face

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

Just stopped taking birth control which I was only on for about a year. Thinking this may have added to it

Do those itch?

A little
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 2 months ago

Looks like the equivalent of a heat rash--just not large areas like usual

Nothing serious though

I suggest oral Claritin or Zytec and topical Caladryl lotion three times a day for a couple of days to clear that up

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

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.
