Don't think I ever showed you this but I did a random skin check for his chest which is extremely hard to do as it's like parting through a lions mane. Anyway please check these carefully as every other photo is actually a new spot (I take 2 photos of the same area before moving into another random spot).

Skin appears normal just some dander no concern

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I assume the dander is the flakes? He's got much more on his dark hair area all over his body. Almost like dandruff.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Can you check these photos out? They are the same but with lower exposure so you can see the skin clearer without squinting since it's so bright

Yes flakes,

skin photos appear normal no concern

I think He's actually always had that red area at the crease. It's definitely not an injury. Let me see if I can find past photos.

I have looked it looks more prominent today

either way I am still not concerned

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
See this gallery.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Dates are attached to the photos in the gallery. First few from NOV last year rest a few months ago.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Pretty prominent too a few months ago

I still think I am seeing a subtle difference

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Well anyway what do you think it is that it's there for so long? It's literally just reddening and has been there for as long as I remember.More importantly, no concern and can I forget about it?

No concern and I am not sure maybe when he bites into his food it is rubbing slightly but still no concern

I will be out of town Friday until Tuesday next week so I may not be responding as I do not know how good the wifi will be. Just wanted to give you a heads up

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
am I able to forget about this red area?


Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Yay!! Anyway about Friday to Tuesday, don't worry about it at all. As always I'll just send the daily stuff over and when you have the time you can hop on over. No rush :)Would you like me to start a new thread before you go Friday?

Yes the would be great.

I am on here for 30 min eating my lunch ... lunch break

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Large. Circled in green. There what appears to be a reflective round guck. Please examine. It looks like a drop of guck so I took many photos. Also there is a red dot too in the same area that wasn't there prior. And finally, yes, a large yellow booger actually dropped down to his nostril from the top while I was taking pictures and I actually saw it happen.

Large bump unchanged not concerned about tiny red dot

small bump unchanged no concern

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Did you see the new thread?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I started it last night
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Called "placeholder for Meghan denney"
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Someone else tried to take it and I think that's the reason you didn't see it.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
1. Two different nipple macros.
2. Tiny reddened area on his skin around groin macro.
3. Mole check.
4. White nipple bump.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Forgot to show you this. Armpit check. Please examine carefully as this is his other side that I rarely am able to observe. Last few pics are of his nipple that I showed you the macros of. Again this side I don't ever think I've shown you.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
For today:
1. Small.
2. Large. I can't tell if the dot at the bottom of the brown bump is dark brown or maroon or red. Let me know if you need me to circle.
3. Front lip.
4. Sorry I know everyone has told me I should forget about this snout cyst but my OCD is still kicking in hard on this one. Hopefully I'll start to eventually really forget about this. But for now please see.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
1. Small.
2. Large. Please check these photos carefully to ensure no red spots or abnormalities. Latter half of photos contain the back of nose as it's hidden behind those giant boogers I had to alter the angle of the shot.
3. Front lip.
4. Under chin pigment.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Face and snout check. Only a few photos here. Please examine carefully.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
1. Small. First 3 are compare and rest HD.
2. Large. First 3 are compare and rest HD.
3. Large nose side mucosa check.
4. Finally. I found a red dot on his front tongue tip. I took many shots but circled the first 5 for you in green for the location. Please examine and let me know your assessment.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
1. Large.
3. Small side. First is a before after comparing before where I noticed a circled round Booger. After was taken after a wet wipe in the nose to make sure it was indeed booger. Rest HD of before the wipe and after.
