Small hole on arm, now its brown?
My husband noticed a small hole on his arm the other day. It looked like it was a small burn mark but it was not red, didn't bleed and didn't hurt. Now, a few days later, there's like brown colored skin(?) over it. Could this be a new mole? Its pretty small and almost completely round. I can't find anything on the internet about it. Its on his forearm right over a tattoo he has had for a long time.
You're obviously concerned about it, so why not visit the doctor to either set your and your husband's minds at rest or else get something done early, if it is something that needs attention. People with moles are told to watch out for:
* changes in size
* changes in shape
* becoming rough
* becoming itchy
Shouldn't you go to an emergency room? Sounds like may be Recluse spider bite or pre-cancerous.(early discovery is beneficial). Need to check on it though.
poisonous spider bite was my first thought too.
He has gotten bitten by a brown before and nothing happened. I think he is very resistant to their venom. He works at a factory that is surrounded by woods so I am thinking its from some kind of spider.
It's NOT a brown recluse bite. I was bitten by one years ago and that initial bite is extremely painful. There is no way that he wouldn't have noticed it.
I seen bites from Browns and its not from that. I heard they were painful. As I said though, he has gotten bit by one and nothing happened. He was 100% sure it was a Brown too. I think his immune system is strong. he hardly ever gets sick.
I would see a doctor any time you find anything different or unusual about your body. It might just be a mole or a spider, but not to scare you, pre-cancerous growths can start very small as well.
Is he sure he wasn't bit by a brown recluse??? That's a bit what it sounds like.
Possible spider bite, flesh eating venom, even a small dose, can be pretty potent. Better get that looked at by someone who knows.
so from what you have written i came to understand that you (your husband) have a change in the character of the scar marks of whatever it might have been (the picture, might have helped even more certainly) nevertheless, i think that could either be a keloid formation, it's a medical term for something to occur from the previous scar.. it's nothing dangerous, just for the cosmetic purpose one can remove it by having a minor surgery.. well, firstly, i would wanna advise you to go to a dermatologist and hopefully, to a surgeon.. i hope it helps.. )
I wish that I could see the "lesion," that is, the place where "the small hole" was. You say that it looked liked a small burn mark, "Could a spark from a fire or a cigarette caused the "small, now brown, place on his skin? Ask him to think about where he was, and what he was doing or what others were doing around him on the day he first noticed the small hole. Do you have ticks or other biting insects in your environment? Was he out in a field or in the woods on the day that he noticed the small hole? Answers to the questions that I have asked can really help me, as a physician, or other doctors, to get to the basis of the problem.
Also, I might add, I have seen little lesions on the skin like this one that just clears up and goes away, given a week or so. Many time, and this is not unusual, we see things like this, "they come and they go," and we never make a diagnosis to say what the true cause of the problem was.
I which that I could say more or do more, but let's thank God that there is no pain, bleeding or inflammation (signs of swelling, redness and pain (and sometimes, infection)), associated with this problem.
Also, I must add, be sure to see a dermatologist, or other qualified doctor, who knows skin diseases well, if this thing gets worse or fails to resolve soon.
It didn't hurt him at all before it was brown. When it was just the hole. I put peroxide on it anyway and it fizzed up so there was bacteria on it. The next day is when it turned brown, so maybe it scabbed up. It doesn't hurt & hasn't gotten wors
