My mum has had a rash on the back of her hands for a year now, it is like a purple colour and has increased from a small spot size ot the whole of the back of her hand, it is a ring shape and bumpy on the edges. She has been told its Garnuloma Annulare (GA) but im not convinced as it had spread to her face aswell and is constantly increasing in size and spreading. According to my research GA does not grow as much and disappears after a short while. Any advice on this will be grrealty appreciated

  • i would see a hematologist if her primary doc does not know. sounds like it could involve her clotting factors .... i really do not know. but i am pretty sure it is not normal.
