I've discovered a rash on my upper back thigh it's really itchy especially when I'm in the bath or shower and I don't know but I'm getting itchy on my shoulder and forearm not sure if it's spreading or not just wanted to know and makesure it's nothing major or if it's anything to be aware about

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Should I send a picture

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

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
