Black Specks On Skin
(Vicksburg, MS USA)
What are black specks on skin?
My husband for the past week has had 3 episodes of black specks on his ear, behind his ear, and on both sides of his face.
You can brush them off or use a washrag to remove them.
Took him to the ER and they did not know what it was and said it was not coming out of his skin and that he must be getting into something.
His blood work was fine. EKG fine and he is on a lot of meds. Can you please tell me what it could possibly be...it's a mystery to us!
PS: It does not itch.
There have been quite a number of people complaining of very similar black specks on skin over the last year. It's really remarkable.
If you'd like to read their posts, just use the search feature in the upper right corner of this page and type in "black specks."
Interestingly enough, your husband seems to be having a very minor problem compared to others who are finding the experience both painful and difficult to remove.
There's a good chance that you are dealing with something entirely different. Who knows?
A few thoughts came to mind when I read your post. The first is that you mentioned that your husband is on a lot of meds.
Prescription medications in many cases tend to weaken the immune system overall, which may lead to a fungal overgrowth in the system. This is particularly true when you are dealing with antibiotics and such.
These specks may be a manifestation of too much candida albicans in the body. It would be good to boost the amount of good/friendly bacteria in his body with the use of probiotic supplements to help bring the body back in balance.
A second thought I had was wondering if you have any pets. If so, consider whether or not this may be something coming from one of the pets.
Another visitor recently discovered that his condition was definitely caused by his pet. Once he removed the pet from the home, he cleared up. It's a hard call, but if your health is at stake, it may become necessary.
Finally, if you are still unable to determine the cause but are concerned about the health implications, consider a digestive cleanse and nutritional support.
My fall back position is always to support the body's own immune system by natural cleansing and building and pray that the body will do what it is designed to do - heal on its own.
