no dx. it is always minor and resolving when I see her. She is thinking it is contact allergies or sensitive skin.
Photo will not upload and it is not a very clear picture. The rash area is elevated and light red and the red spot is above and is small. working on the photo. it is just not going to be very helpful.
the skin rashes seem to change in appearance periodically. THis rash is similar to the rash I had a few weeks ago. The only difference and my only concern is the red spot that looks similar to those bruises I often get on my hands but never get this far up on my arm and that spot does not blanch. Really, it does not look alarming and it is only one spot. I have the normal ugly purple bruise on my wrist which is not uncommon for me so I guess my concern is the spot that looks like purpura above the rash. I am an anxious person and these skin issues have been making me a little crazy. It is probably nothing to be concerned about but I it is different and I wanted to run it by a doctor.
No--this is the first time I have had anything that looked like purpura. It is a red purplish red spot right above the rash. I have never had this happen before.
Oh I have some bruising on my hands occasionally. My derm was not concerned and said it is just aging. This one is different. I did not bump this spot like I do my hands and wrist. IT just popped out of nowhere several hours after I got the rash. I would not be concerned at all except that it does not blanch and is a spot where even if I bumped it I would expect a normal bruise not a red spot that doesn't blanch.
Okay--my fb doctor is not in today. I will see if I can make an appt. for tomorrow. Thank you.
