A small brown spot on the legs – what is it?

What does small brown spot in legs indicate?

Everyone –  just a reminder.  A brown spot can be anything from a deadly melanoma skin cancer to a harmless freckle (lentigo).   This is not the place for a web or self diagnosis.  Please, please go see your doctor, preferably a dermatologist if there is any question about a ‘spot.’   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
