Every Possible Skin Sympton :(

So, get ready for this one - because I swear I have every skin symptom.. each symptom seems to be an explanation for another disease, and I haven't found anything that includes them all!

It started out with an itchy patch on my knee, and I thought nothing of it. I figured I was probably allergic to a bug that bit me, this spot has stayed for a few months, although it has faded and is now more of a rough, dry skin patch with slight discoloration - and it rarely itches.
Then I started getting white bumps, one of my hand - and two under my nose.. not sure of the technical term for this - but on the bit of skin that seperates both nostrils? Again, I didn't worry much - I didn't like them much cosmetically, and it was annoying to have to pick them off daily (they grew back within a day).
Then about a week ago I noticed a red rash under one of my armpits. Assuming it was an allergic reaction/shaving too much, I stopped doing either. The rash spread - and is now crusted. It looks like impetigo.. Now this rash has spread to the other armpit, a spot on my ribcage, a spot on my jaw, a spot in the groin area - and is generally slowly spreading out from each armpit to my chest.
There is also a spot on my chest, and an unexplained scar that I noticed just today.
The isolated spots (ribcage/chest) seem to fade fairly quickly.

I also have two itchy spots, unlike the armpit rash - on the side of my index finger and on the front middle finger. The one on the index finger has blistered on the edges with some discoloration on the inner part of the spot. On my middle finger, it's more like an open sore - much more noticeable.

And for the last thing, as I stepped out of the shower I noticed two small brown spots on my hand. I assumed it was from a marker/pen and scrubbed at them to no avail.

Thanks for reading all of that! Hopefully someone can help..
Thanks in advance.


A few weeks ago I thought I had athletes foot, I became very itchy between my toes. It faded, but I thought this might be helpful.
