Small circular rough patches on skin - very weird - anyone got these?

Hi folks.

For the past few months, I have noticed strange spots/bumps on my skin.

So far they've appeared on my arms and legs. I have maybe 10 of them in total.

They start as a tiny circular white rough patch. If I scratch them, some of them scrape right off, like a thin callous or dry skin or the dried top of a healed blister.

Some of them don't come off, and, being a 'picker', I scratch and pick at them constantly.

I pick at the ones on my forearm. They drive me crazy! They don't itch - I just can't help picking at them.

Am I in a new stage of the disease? What on earth are these things? Will they go away?

I showed my LLMD but she was in a hurry that day and she dismissed my complaint as "everyone gets those".

I could see a dermatologist, but I lost my insurance.

I wonder what kind of cream I could put on them?

Any ideas anyone?

Peace and health to all,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Re: Small circular rough patches on skin - very weird - anyone got these?

Hi Mickie, I sometimes get these little circular things on me. They are about the size of a dime and on the outside "usually" on the right side of it, it has like a little half moon red area. Mine don't itch. They break out on my right side of my back by my shoulder and on the right side of my torso.

I had someone look at it thinking it was ring worm. They didn't think it was. Been about 6 months since I have had them. wierd!

Have your tried a antifungal cream, or antibiotic cream.

Hope you are doing well!
