10 month old sun damage

Postby valkyrie_blue on Thu Mar 01, 2018 4:41 pm

Last may I got very badly burned. My skin on my back was so itchy it would wake me up at night. It did that for around six months, I had dry hard dark brown flakes of skin and spots filled with pus. Now, it still itches daily and my skin which was clear before is now covered in moles, a couple of which are very dark and still some pus filled spots. What do you think it is?

Hi Valkyrie,

I would strongly recommend visiting a GP or dermatologist to get your back checked out ASAP.

If you have any changes to a patch of skin, including itching as you have described you should have it checked by a professional.

Have a read of this page http://www.ittakesseven.org.uk/skin-cancer-facts

If you would like any further information or a list of dermatologists in your area (UK only) please email me lisa@britishskinfoundation.org.uk and I'm happy to send.

Best wishes,
Lisa
