 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am 24 weeks pregnant. I recently noticed a dark purple patch (a mesh of visible blood vessels), 1.5" x 2" in size, on my thigh. Should I be worried?

Shashi (Norcross, USA)

A: Pigmentation in forms of papules (purple patch) can occur as a part of pregnancy due to the large number of hormonal and immunological changes. However it is best to have it examined to rule out any pathological cause for the same. I suggest you visit a dermatologist as soon as possible.
