Annie's Mailbox

Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar

Dear Annie: For the last couple of years, I have been getting these large purple spots on my
skin -- especially on my hands. Many years ago, I saw something in Ann Landers' column
about a waterproof product that covers scars, burns and other kinds of disfigurements,
but I don't remember the name. Can you help me out with this? -- J.

Dear J.: The products you are thinking of are Covermark ( at 1-800-524-1120.

But first see your doctor to be sure those marks are nothing to worry about.
