About five days ago, I noticed a red spot on my arm. It looked like an insect bite and was slightly raised. It started out as a red circle, smaller than a dime. In about a day or so, it developed an inner ring of drier, whiter skin on top of the original sore. Since then, I have noticed similar spots on my arms, legs, back, and one in between two fingers. I have ruled out insect bites and other highly contagious infections (like scabies and bed bugs) because the person who I sleep next to and live with does not have anything resembling what I do. The spots are a little itchy. The first spot on my arm is still there, and I counted about 15 more spots on my body. I do not have allergies, I have had the chicken pox immunization, and other than the itch I feel completely healthy. I am 18 years old and I have never seen anything like this before on my skin. I have searched online, looked at all different types of rashes and insect bites, scabies, ring worm, etc. and cannot determine my condition. What are the possibilities for the condition I have?
