Do you have an image of this that I could view? That would help me to give you an idea of what it could be and what some management options are.

Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

The images you posted show skin breakdown in the form of an ulcer. This could be due to an autoimmune disease or a bacterial infection. It would be necessary for the dermatologist to biopsy this spot and then culture it as well. it's possible it's a mycobacterium infection or an ulcer related to diabetes. Once that information is determined then it should be fairly easy to treat it.

This skin lesion wouldn't contribute to any fogginess of the brain - that might be an issue to review with your doctor or a neurologist if it's something that's ongoing. However it could explain some of the irritation you feel in the area and the sensation of scratching it.

I saw two dermatologists who said ring worm but I have a good friend who has same symptoms and we go ocd showing each other symptoms and they seem to be the same but we feel like aliens with it
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It’s not ring worm and also every 3 days or so I go into like little seizure episodes and I go out for a few seconds and I’m extremely tired and it seems to be like I’m in a mini coma bc I don’t respond to my name being called easily
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I have been to the ER and they actually narcanned me and I have been clean for 10 years but I’m on methadone maintenance that long as well
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

I'm not sure if a blood test would help you much. I would focus on the other tests which I mentioned.

Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

That's 100% not ring worm. You would need to see a new dermatologist unfortunately.

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.
