Hi there,

Have you been checked for a liver disease? Do you have any other conditions?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not been checked for that. I have COPD and heart disease I have a lot of rashes nobody has ever figured out. Started on arms .with red bump then turns into dry scaley round spot which will be there for a year or longer. My arms are almost cleared from new ones but legs have it now from knee to ankle and inner thighs. Leaves nasty scaring round brown spots with pink in the middle.

Thank you. The massive weight gain and the raisend blood vessels make it possible that your liver is a bit too hard. Then the blood passes by in the vessels of your belley, which are vulnerable and bleed easily. You should hava an ultrasound an blood works of your liver. Maybe this will finde the reason for your rash, too.
