Wth is this? (mildly gross pic..maybe) *it's not ringworm*

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm not sure when I got this but I felt it yesterday evening. Yesterday it was just a small red bump, like a mosquito bite. Now it's the small red bump with a bigger red circle around it. The bigger red circle feels kind of hard. :/ The pic isn't great because it's with my webcam. It's on my inner, upper arm. Boil? Cyst? MRSA? Spider bite? Anyone have any opinions?

Oh no :( I hope they figure it out and can do something for you!!

Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

Erythematous rash was one. I'm not sure. I looked at a lot of rashes....I'll come back and message ya tomorrow with links. But it's also on my scalp and my hair is falling out :(



Quoting 3lilladies81:

I'll look up CCLE and see what I find





Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I did....and it looks like something called CCLE or something related to shit can't spell the word



I'm mobile or I'd link u.








Quoting 3lilladies81:

That stinks!! Have you tried googling it?? Put in every symptom you can think (including all over body) I sure hope you find out soon!!









Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I put anti itch cream on it and it burned like fire :( then my skin on the area started burning like I had a sunburn.











Quoting 3lilladies81:

Hmmm well they would know better lol but seriously if you have some anti-fungal cream put some on it everyday for two weeks can't hurt to try













Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

Dr said it wasn't ringworm. She said the rheumy doc would know for sure. Ugh.















Quoting 3lilladies81:

Looks like ringworm to me and I would know I have one right now thanks to the stray cat I take care of.

















Quoting Miss.MaryJane:

I have this all over my body and my dr has no clue what it is. She suspects it could be Lupus related.









It starts with a small red dot. Then the ring. Then it turns into a welt like bump.It dries and flakes. Now it itches like a mo fo. Round 2 of steroids here I go.









Good luck.

It's not ringworm, ringworm wouldn't have the center. Something but you most likely a spider, probably a wolf spider and the outer red is the toxins and your body fighting them. Make sure it doesn't get bigger, wash it with soap and water. If it gets worse or you have a fever go to urgent care, otherwise wait until Monday. Check your sheets for a dead spider, often times that's when you'll get bit. Good luck. Hopefully it doesn't get infected more.

I'm honesty not being mean, but it could be herpes. Sometimes break outs on the body look like ringworm. Herpes can stay dormant in your body for a very long time.

Thanks. :) I didn't see anything in my bed but I've been thinking about it and I wonder if maybe I got it when I went swimming the other day. My clothes were in a locker room locker and maybe I picked up a spider there.  I haven't seen a single spider in my house, dead or alive, in months.

Lol. Thanks. :) I do get cold sores, but this has no blister on it. It doesn't look like the herpes pics I googled. Thankfully!
