Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne. I can help you today.

Can you please attach a photo of the lesion for me to see? Why have you been applying gentian? Is there a yeast infection in the skin? The gentian will turn lesions black or purple. There may have been a flesh colored lesion that turned purple with the gentian.

Please reply so I can continue to help you. Thanks.
