My mother (55 yrs) started to have brown dot type something in her ankle almost more than a year ago, earlier we thought that this is side effect of some medicine. But as the days passed by the dots became bigger. Several big patches appeared of same nature. Although it does not pain nor it causes any trouble, but what is that anyway, how to cure it. Please help doctor.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise you to get this clinically examined by a dermatologist without any further delay and proceed as he/ she recommends you to. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

Dear lybrate-user, She needs some basic blood tests like platelet count. If it is normal, she should then see a skin specialist to confirm diagnosis. All the Best.
