My friend has developed this weird skin rash that started out looking like brown freckles on her hand. After a couple days, they were multiplying and spreading across her hand. Now the brown dots are beginning to merge together and form brown patches and she is getting more on her other hand. She's been to the doctor and no one can figure out what it is! She thought she might be pregnant, but the tests turned out negative.

Her husband returned from the middle east 2 weeks before it started. Could it be related to something he may have picked up there? Any ideas of what it could be?

  • The brown patches could be some kind of skin infection, or (rarely) they could be a sign of something going on in her body, maybe not related to her husband's return from the Desert....Hopefully she will see a dermatologist soon to check it out.
