I have varicose eczema on my lower legs, looks like brown

This answer was rated:

I have varicose eczema on my lower legs, looks like brown staines and are really ugly and embarrassing to look at, I was wondering if I could get a tattoo on each leg to cover this up?, I have been treating them with emollient creams and compression stockings but they still look the same.
This is Dr. David

you can get a tattoo

or you can see a dermatologist for skin laser treatments.

the brown stains are from small broken blood vessels on the skin and old bruises which left blood in the skin which can cause discoloration

dermatologist have laser treatments which can help fade those brown spots.

let me know if you have questions.
