Listeners' Questions

My daughter has a small mole on her shoulder. The skin around it is completely white and does not tan. Is this something I should be concerned about?
Mrs K

Doctor's Reply:
I would show it to the doctor once to be on the safe side. Usually we are concerned about moles that change seize or shap or even start  to alter their surfaces or bleed.Let me know please if I can help you on this subject or any other health issue.

Kind regards, Dr. Ali


I have been experiencing short sharp pain in my right arm, it almost feels like an electric shock, it only happens every few months but it's very painful. Is it something I should get checked out? there is no bruising or marks on the skin & it only lasts for a few seconds.
Doctor's Reply:

Thank You very much for your Email. I would check it out, as it isn’t a single episode symptom and being painful. It makes me think of muscles or neuronal problems.
If you live in Costa del Sol area, please make an appointment to come to my surgery in Marbella in order to investigate the reason for this pain.
We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday every week from 10AM to 2PM.

Kind regards, Dr. Ali

Went to my Dr he advised oilive oil drops and then after 4 days ear syringed.
When I went back to dr he still said a lot of wax in my
Ears. This time used Otocerum drops. Once again ears syringed (this time very painful.
