I'll give it to you guys fast. Final year of high school gained a lot of weight, maybe 10-15 kilos - due to that got stretch marks. Short while later got some red rashes around the stretch marks which I thought was due to my sudden weight gain no worries I thought. After 2 months it spread to my legs, biceps and forearms and it's been like this for 3-4 months. I'm desperate. I'll post some pics, don't know how long it'll take to get approved. Thanks in advance.

Here are a few pictures I uploaded, if you need any more I'll take some pictures.

  • You appear to have "tinea versicolor". Wiki it and you will see the similarity. It is a yeast that lives naturally on the skin but in some will overgrow. A nurse can prescribe you the proper cream- it is clotrimazole, the same as is used over-the-counter for jock itch and athlete's foot, but you have to apply it every day multiple times if you use the weaker o-t-c stuff. Cheers!
