Can you upload a photo(s) of representative skin to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if that icon is visible) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. Sudden appearing skin lesions are usually self-induced; in other words, my patient has scratched or chewed away the hair resulting in a pyotraumatic dermatitis ("hot spots").
