Well after the winter passed, i was sort of hoping this would pass also. During the last summer i developed a bunch of red spots on the upper half of my body. On my neck and shoulders and chest. I was living in a really hot house, and i guess i didnt get out much to get a tan. I suppose it is heat induced. Because today i just got it back again after a really warm day.
Im very fair skinned, and im scared to try and get a tan incase it will increase the color differences in my on my body. Making me look even more odd. Does anyone know how to treat something like this?
I dont even know what it is. But i know it is very unattractive, makes me look like i got some wierd disease or something. I hate it. And i hope this isnt a sign that its goin to come back strong.
I also bathe alot...i like to take warm baths alot. Could this possibly be hurting to?
Can anyone help plz? Its itching now and it looks horrible. I cant afford a trip to the dermatologist, and i cant stand for this to come back it makes me look so bad and i ahve enough depression on account of the way i look as is. Please someone help
Yo lost cause,I might have an answer for you maybe not.Tinea Veriscolor is a common skin condition due to the overgrowth of normally present skin yeast.Sometimes it is red,brownish,but most people notice it when their skin has white spots or patches that won't tan over.Also. if you look closely it seems slightly raised and dry in appearance.The treatment for it is Selsun Blue shampoo %2.5,on the affected area for 10 mins.,then use a buffer or some kind of (preferably new) body scrubber,and repeat for seven days.Change your bedsheets every other day, wear clean fresh clothes everyday.The white spots can take some time to disappear ( the red spots you have will probably go white after the SB treatment).Go to a dermatologist,isn't there some kind of walk in clinic you can go to ,if that doesn't work for you I'm sure a pharmcist can go over the way to treat this, if you do have it.
Try a simple cortisone cream. It'll help with the itch and the embarrassment of the rash. But I agree that you should see someone about it. If it keeps coming back, you may have psoriasis or eczema. Good luck!
