Hi, recently ive noticed quite alot of medium sized scabs around my body, mainly on my chest and the tops of my legs and just below my armpit. There not itchy but they are starting to concern me. Also ive noticed a small yellow/brown mole about the size of pea on my leg with a red one close which is slightly raised. what is this and do i need to be concerned? Thanks

  • I'm not sure about the scabs, but keep your eyes on those moles. Have they grown in size/circumference recently? Have they changed color? Do they have an irregular/jagged border? Any change in mole size, color, or border needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist to rule out skin cancer...

  • possibly a small case of eczema. just use eucerin lotion and it should lighten up in less than a month, or tea tree oil which helps almost any skin condition. Not sure about the mole though, i agree that it might be skin cancer.
