RE: [IP] Ring around neck



In a related story, my dad had a number of endocrin problems, one of which
was spots on his skin where the pigment disappeared.  Similar, yet
different.

Hyperpigmentation can also be a sign of other endocrine diseases.  I would
highly recommend getting the child to a doc.  Its better to be safe than
sorry.
