I'm for the most part healthy as a horse, with that being said im fairly large as well also hairy so I itch normally no big deal, but what ive been experiencing has gone on for way too long now. In between my fingers where the webbing is itches, from my heel to about the middle of my sole itches, my foot pad itches, in between my toes itch, and finally my arm pit itches. Now heres where it gets interesting. If i scratch the affected areas such as between my fingers or toes it burns and stings afterwards if the area moves. The rash that comes up, and its the only rash that ive seen is circular and has a tiny red dot in the middle almost like a target. I looked into it and thought maybe i had contracted ringworms but after looking at the rash and comparing it to other photos the "ring" that i saw on my hands and feet were white in color with the tiny red dot in the middle. I compared the size of the rash to a coin and in size the ring is about the same size as a dime.

now for the best part, see i also think that this condition is spreadable considering that my wife had the symptoms before i did, yet i had a similar episode previously being almost a year or more before my wife and I got together where i had thought that i had contracted scabies from a previous partner yet if i recall correctly ive seen the same circles before. The itch is persistent throughout the day yet at night it flares up a bit more but that could be where we are winding down and are most likely just more aware of the itch.

also id like to note that the rash does not always appear but only when the area is seriously agitated, such as on my foot pad from walking around at work, and just to be a bit clearer i work at McDonalds so it eliminates a few theories.
