Hi there

Could you tell me how long have you had this lesion? Is it the only one? Does it scale or itch? Have you had this before ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'd say I've had it for a month now. no itch, I don't know what you mean by scale.

Sorry, wrong box

Expert:  Nadim Al-Mubarak replied 4 months ago.

My apology. There is a problem with the site. Responses are going to the wrong quuestions

I would definitely have this directly checked out by a Dermatologist. You might need a biopsy. It could be a lesion related to Lyme disease and early recognition and treatment is very effective. It could also be as simple as contact dermatitis or a residual of an insect bite. It does not appear to be scaly, so, psoriasis is unlikely. Besides, this is not the typical location for that.

If this answers your question, please complete the rating above. It's how we get credit for the service. Best wishes

I was bitten by bedbugs but this one looked different, Can bed bugs do this?
Expert:  Nadim Al-Mubarak replied 4 months ago.

This is not typical of a bedbug.
