Skin discoloring, burning sensation and stabbing pain on my back

I have a large brown discoloration oon my mid-back. Almost every day i experience some degree of stabbing pain (like being stabbed with needles), itchiness, and burning sensations. Sometimes bengay and rest can alleviate the symptoms, but it still comes back on an almost daily basis. I have a photo of the discoloration for reference.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.

You seem to have collection, leading to skin discoloration, pain and other symptoms.
Kindly get in touch with your physician and get an ultrasound of back for soft tissue collection as delaying treatment can cause complications.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
