I would really appreciate any help... Just recently I have started getting small red patches on my legs im guessing its under the skin cause they are not raised, they do not itch or cause any discomfort.it first started with one this size of a nickle that appeared about 3 weeks ago i at first thought it was a ringworm cause its looked like a red ring but i've had that before and it didnt itch and its completely flat, a few days later i noticed a couple of much smaller ones on my thighs again they dont itch or anything.

I left them alone thinking they'd go away since they didnt bother me but then i noticed a tiny red splotch appearing on my wrist and then i worried. I have no insurance so i went to primacare and the dr didnt no what it was but prescribed me some cream.

it appeared to be working the big one is almost gone or faded the one on my wrist is gone and the other 2 are slowly going but then out of nowhere i noticed a new one its a more intense red and still on my leg and a couple of more that look like they are appearing.

they seem to come out of nowhere and stay the same sizes i have looked online to see if i could find anything but havent. i did find someone post on yahoo answers and post pics that looks just like mine i'll post a link to that maybe it will help.

The answer POST

these are not pictures of mine.... mine are not in one spot they are spread out around my legs and smaller





that person didnt get answers on there and i cant get in contact with them to ask. but i hope someone here could point me in the right direction
