I just recently started a new job and therefore have not had any medical coverage since my new job requires a wait period in order to see a doctor.

I wanted to diagnose a rash I got a month or two ago. The rash is a circular ring, with the center being dark brown/black and sometimes flakey. It itches at times, and it looks terrible! I should point out that the rash is just underneath my chin.

I'm seeking help, as i think i may be getting another rash in the corner of my face which seems to look identical to my first rash, so maybe its spreading?

Anyone know what it could be? I wonder if it is lyme disease? I have attached a couple pictures below. I am in desperate need of assistance!

  • I looked at your pic's but I can hardly see anything. Im not really sure what kind of rash it could be. Try putting benadryl on it, if it gets worse it could be yeast!
