About a year ago, I noticed small red circles under my arm. Quickly they spread to the other underarm, I noticed them all over my body. Legs, back, stomache. I went to a doctor and he was clueless. Does anyone know what this could be? They are not itchy, they are not raised up, no dryness, no peeling, just red blotches. It is getting now to where I have to wear longer sleeves because I see the look in people's eyes if I lift my arm in public and they see them.
You need to get to a dermatologist ,pronto.Your doctor would not know what it is because general practitioner's are not specialist's,in any field.The derm. will do a simple, skin srcaping to see what it is,who knows he might even recognize what it is right away.Good luck!
Please let me know if you had a dermatologist look at this. I am going through the same thing. I'm 39 years old and as early as 1 year ago we noticed a spot about the size of a quarter on my face. Back then it was white and silvery looking. Now I have multiple spots mostly on my face and they are pink, and they seem to be spreading. I have gone to three different doctors and they have all given me the same medicine and it's getting very disturbing. They claim it's Tinea Verisicolor, yet the pills and the lotions times three doctors has not helped at all. My family does not suffer from Veritiligo or any other skin disease, and I'm wondering what the heck can get rid of this. I've gone as far as seeing a Chinese N.D. and she suggested it being a skin parasite - I took her 20 or so pills after 2 months and while I feel great, the spots continue growing. The initial doctor took full blood work and found no cancer, though a biopsy of an area was never done. Can anyone help?
