The Skin Of The Chest Appears Blackish Brown Spots?
Why does my chest get dark brown when I rake and wrinkle there is white skin
Hello Gfx, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Brown spots on the skin can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Malassezia furfur fungal infection, which is a fungus that causes post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation of tinea versicolor, which is blackness of the skin that appears after an inflammatory reaction in the skin (can be infections, dermatitis, urticaria, herpes, etc.) sun damage (solar lentigo) café-au- Lait or birthmark, can also be a manifestation of a disease such as neurofibromatosis. If the spot is itchy, it becomes more widespread, it is possible that the brown spot is caused by Malassezia furfur fungal infection. This fungal infection does not always have to cause whitish spots on the skin, but it can also cause brownish or reddish patches. To be able to find out with certainty, you should check with a dermatologist. Your dermatologist can look at the patches directly to identify the cause. Your doctor can also perform examinations such as a skin examination under a wood lamp, skin scraping, or skin biopsy if needed.
If it is caused by a fungus, the doctor can give you an antifungal medication to treat it. Meanwhile, some of the things you can do include:
Bathing regularly, if you sweat a lot, shower twice a day using a mild soap on the skin, no need to use antiseptic soap if you sweat a lot, change clothes frequently, use clothes that are soft and absorb sweat, avoid direct sun exposure on the skin
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
