Question: Flat Brown Skin Splotch Groin


 loopz - Tue Apr 20, 2004 11:50 am

Question:
I have had a brown skin splotch near my groin for some time now. However, I've just noticed a second, much larger (at least a quarter size) splotch near the first. It isn't itchy, it is flat and causes no discomfort. I am on the pill -- ortho tri-cyclen and figure that that could be the cause but am not sure. thoughts?
