    My husband has tough, shiny, black and blue areas on his legs. They're not irritated or painful, but they've started growing patches of hair now when none were present before. Does anyone know what these could be?

    Hi there


    My first recommendation of course is for your husband to see a doctor about these spots.  Do you think they are what is known as age spots or sun spots?


    Here is an article by expert Sue Chung about how to get rid of age spots if this is what they are.


    Thank you for your question.
