The Causes And Ways Of Dealing With Makula Café Au Lait Under The Right And Left Armpits?
Good afternoon, introduce my name muhammad isnan aged 22 I apparently have a cafe au lait under the armpit / side of the lungs on the right and left. Measure one palm. The cafe au lait has only appeared in the last 3 years, which is the question: 1. Is that dangerous? 2. Can it be removed? 3. Is it not mushroom huh? Thank you, please answer …
Thank you for the question.
It should be clarified, how did you know that what you experienced was café au lait? Has it been seen by a doctor and diagnosed with au lait? If so, isn't there any particular treatment that the doctor gave you?
Macular café au lait is a hyperpigmented lesion in the skin that is often associated with genetic disorders, namely neurofibromatosis type 1. Other conditions, such as McCune-Albright syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, Fanconi anemia, and Coffin-Siris syndrome can also trigger café au lait macules. . Frequently, these macules appear since childhood but their colors are faint, then they increase in size and darken in color as they age. Clinically, the macular café au lait appears as a brownish-colored skin rash that generally has an oval and flattened shape with the surrounding skin surface.
If you have not seen a doctor, you should not rush to conclude that your condition is caused by maculacafé au lait. Because, not infrequently, other medical conditions, such as Mongolian spots (birthmarks), nevus (moles), becker melanosis, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, skin infections (including those due to fungi), even skin cancer can also cause clinical symptoms similar to those of maculacafé au lait, even though the handling is clearly different.
We recommend that you first check your complaint to your doctor or dermatologist so that it is evaluated, is it true that your complaint arises due to maculacafé au lait, or if there are other possible causes. Further examination, for example a skin biopsy, can be done by a doctor to confirm the diagnosis of your complaint and give him the right treatment. Before that, you can focus on maintaining the cleanliness of your skin well, including by taking a clean bath, wearing clean clothes, and not exchanging personal items with others. Before your activity, first put sunscreen on your skin, and do not give any treatment carelessly to complaints on your skin without consulting a doctor first.
Hope this helps ...
