Skin Care and Diseases
Brown streaks down face
My son has 2 brown streaks that extend from under his eyes down to his lips. These streaks look like the black streaks you see on a cheetah. I`ve never seen anything like this. The dermatologist didn`t know what it was or what might have caused it. Have you ever seen this before?
I have not seen the presentation that you describe. If there was uniform trauma to both sides of his face, it might explain the lesions. You might wish to consult an individual who has a world reputation in pigment abnormalities....I would suggest Dr. James J. Nordlund, Group Health Associates, 7423 S. Mason Montgomery Road, Mason, Ohio 45040-7828...e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
