Customer Question

I have red spot on my high upper thigh and my waist and arms. They come and go, for maybe the past two year. They look like small rashes. Im not allergic to anything. They started out being itchy and now i think um used to it because it doesnt itch anymore. And ideas on what it could be?

Thank you, ***** ***** much better photographs. Your rash is not typical of any one condition - the possibilities I would keep are Guttate Psoriasis, Recurrent Pityriasis Rosea, and Pityriasis Lichenoids Chronica (PLC). As such a skin biopsy will be required to diagnose the problem accurately. None of these conditions are dangerous so don't worry on that account.

If you cannot see a doctor easily then you could try using Cortizone-10 ointment twice a day on these lesions for a few weeks to see if that helps. You can buy this over the counter without a prescription.
