I have small moles come up on my face and neck, I continually

Resolved Question:

I have small moles come up on my face and neck, I continually itch around my head face eyes and down my back, I occasionally have pin pricks in my hands and feet. I have seen a Dr who examined the moles, he did not consider them to be a problem, at the time I was seen I was not itching, I am concerned as my wife is starting to show the same symtoms. Have we caught an infection, if so what do you consider it to be. Thankyou

DrKnowsBest : If the moles are red, warm, or certainly look like they contain fluid they could be folliculitis. If you saw a dermatologist or reputable diagnostician then this should have been ruled out
DrKnowsBest : Fungal infections can cause a rash and itching as well and could explain both you and your wife getting the same symptom
DrKnowsBest : If they were more like skin colored tags then other things that can cause multiple tags with tingling in the extremities are increased sugar
DrKnowsBest : Either way I would go with your wife to your dr and let him/her know ore thoroughly about your symptoms so some general bloodwork can be done to rule out infection
