How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Can you attach the photos here? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms such as pain and itch? Are you aware of anything which might have brought this on? Is your stress increased at home or work just before the symptom started? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Do you use illegal drugs? Any family medical history including mental illness?

Have you had peripheral blood eosinophilia checked? If you have parasite infection, the number should be increased (absolute eosinophil count >500 cells/microL).
