I seem to have tiny black spots all over my body which i notice over that couple of weeks and wonder if you can tell me what they are?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No. I have not seen a doctor. So no meds.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Nothing.

Nothing too serious there

This is a type of allergic dermatitis and the trigger can sometimes be new soaps or detergents

For now I suggest over the counter Caladryl lotion and oral benadryl or Claritin

If that doesn't clear this up you need a course of oral prednisone from your doctor.

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
