Thank you for the photographs. I was hoping this was something I could identify online and help you with but I can't narrow it down to one condition to explain your problems. Am therefore opting out of the question to open it to other experts in case anyone else has a better understanding. Sorry I could not help.

Am I required to pay another doctor another 50 dollars....if so, please don't forward...if it's still covered on the original 50 dollars then ok, forward and I thank you for you honesty...
