Brown spots

Hi all,

Recently I have noticed two brown spots (like big freckles) appearing on my face, one on either side of my eyes. They look awful and I'm wondering what's causing them. I don't go out in the sun often, quite the opposite actually.
Could an eye cream cause these? I want them removed.

Thanks

Re: Brown spots

Sounds like "age spots"!! Ugh. I have one on my right cheek and hate it! It's like an extra eye.
If it's flat and brown, yea, most likely an age spot due to the sun. I haven't sunned my face in like 15 years but this can stem back to when I was young! Some people say Vitamin E can help lighten them. I use a cover stick though I still see it; really nothing much to do about them unless you have them removed. That can be costly though. I do take Omega 3 and think it [I]might [/I]be [I]slightly[/I] fading mine. (Or wishful thinking) But it's been a long time coming!
If you are worried it might be something other than this, I would definetly have it checked out.

Re: Brown spots

Do you have anything else going on with the brown spots like flaking skin? Do they ever puff up a bit?

Re: Brown spots

If you are on the Pill that can cause them. Don't ask me why but they will!

I know you say you stay out of the sun but did you by any chance get a sun burn before these spots popped up?

Re: Brown spots

No I haven't sunned my face at all for at least a year, even more. I am on the pill but I can't imagine why the pill would cause them!

Re: Brown spots

I really don't know WHY the pill causes the brown spot but the pill DOES cause brown spots. I have not research why it does it I just know that MANY women get ugly brown spots on their faces from taking the pill. I suggest that you search for brown spots from the pill and see what you can find. This isn't something that I just decided to make up! It's a fact!
