Customer Question
I have what look...

I have what look like Ring Worm partial circles on my calves There are several and I have had them for several years. My local Dermatologist has no idea what they are and has no recommendations on how to get rid of them

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes I saw a doctor and he has prescribed no medication for them.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just normal things, all are being treated for. high Blood pressure, Cardiomyopathy, Hypo Thyroid. I am taking meds for all of that and it is under control. I do have a picture of the spots on my legs if you want.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling and nothing seems to aggravate them but they do spread, but not above my knees yet.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
