What can cause brown spots and patches appearing at my ankle and shin? (photo)Skin, Hair & Nails
I’m a 38 female. I realised that there are some brown marks and discolouration on my shin. What could be possible causes for this?
There are a few possibilities for this appearance such as capillaritis, eczema or a vasculitis.
It will be best for you to visit a trusted dermatologist so that we can ask you some questions and have a closer look at your skin before deciding on the most appropriate management.
Usually simple measures such as topical creams will suffice. Occasionally stronger medicines or a skin biopsy may be needed.
Hope this helps.
