Question marti -skin problems

if anyone can help please do.i wonder if these 2 issues are related. i have recently been diagnosed with granduloma annulare.(had a biopsy)i've had them for 10 months now.
i'm still not sure exactly what they are. i'm told it's a chronic inflamatory disorder. around the time of diagnosis i also started getting a red patch on my chest. i showed the dermatologist and she said it looked like alittle eczema. she gave me some cream to use and said don't use it for more than 2 wks. since then i have developed more. it's wierd though. they are only on my chest and stomach, and if there is 1 on the left side there is 1 on the right in the same area. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thank you pandel0

Do an internet search for condition the biopsy identified. Learn as much about it as possible.

There are several skin conditions that have no known cause or cure. I have two conditions of that nature.
Some will wear themselves out over a few years and others seem to stick around.

Not sure about the granduloma annulare, but I found a product on the internet that has worked wonders for my eczema. It's called the skin saver. It contains no harsh chemicals and provides relief for other skin irritations as well. I found it stops itching from mosquito bites, sun burn, and poison ivy too. Hope it helps you as much as it helps me.
