Black marks on skin

Dear Doctor

For the last two years I have been getting these red itchy dots that turn black and become permanent, all over my body. They look like dark freckles or beauty marks. How can I prevent them or get rid of them.

Thanks

Shelle, it’s very difficult to make a dermatological diagnosis without being able to examine you first. It sounds like it might be solar keratosis or another form of sun damage, but I can’t say for sure. The best would be to see a dermatologist and have it sorted out.
