How long have you had that and does it itch?

It does itch, and I just noticed it today

I doesn't look fungal like ringworm

It looks like a patch of allergic dermatitis--sometimes seen with new soaps, detergents, etc

But many times the trigger isn't determined

Nothing too serious though

You can use over the counter 1% hydrocortisone twice a day for a week plus either benadryl or Claritin orally to take care of it

Please let me know if you need any more information

I was just concerned cause it didn't appear to blanche when I pressed on it but then again it's hard to see really clearly with where it is

I promise you it's nothing at all to worry about

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
