Can you attach the photos here? How tall is she? How much does she weigh? Any weight change? When did it start? Is it getting worse? Pain or itch? Any other symptoms besides the lesion? Is she aware of anything which might have bought this on? What tests did she have? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications? Any family medical history?

hello, I am 172cm tall, 57 kg, i have lost one kg in short period. It started few months ago. i don't have pain or itch. I have raynauds syndrom. I had one petit mal and one grand mal epilepsy seizure 2yrs ago. I am inclined to faint or to feel fatique but i believe it is job related. my basic blood tests are ok i did not do specific ones. I also have laryngytis. I have more diarrheas recently. bloated stomach and as far as I recall i had digestive issues. 2 years ago i was diagnosed cats scratch desease ( bartonella bactery). I had swollen atheroma or something like that which was operated. I have dry skin and am sensitive by nature, prone to stress. I was suspicious to lupus a year ago but according to some blood test I ran at that time it prove stries arevery precise and even , those on legs are paralel, it is completely impossible I could harm myself,. i dont have recent photos they are pale now, they used to be dark red. one on the lower back was arr 20 cm long. after red phase it became similar to scratch. and pale in the last phase. we don't have medical history in family. i have brest implants 7 years ago did not check. i take Eftic which is valproic acid for seizures, and sedative which i take through longer period so shouldn't cause this. thank you
