Any skin change? If so, can you attach the photos here? How old are you? Are you a male or female? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Is your stress increased at home or work just before the symptom started? Any family medical history?

No skin change or rash; age 71; female; ht 5'2"; wt 125lbs; no wt change; nothing makes it better or is not constant it just begins and ends for no reason of which I'm aware; can't remember exactly when it began but possibly about a year ago; not worsening; no other symptoms; no medical problems; gynecological surgeries many years ago.Am certain this is nothing serious just most annoying.
