Around the time of Halloween I noticed a small red splotch on my arm. The same night that I noticed it I remember feeling really yucky like I was getting the flu or something. About a week later I went to my family doctor to look at the splotch and for my general yucky feeling. By this time the splotch had turned into what looked like classical Ringworm. He gave me some cream and a new medication for IBS.
About a week and a half to two weeks later I started noticed other red splotches on my body. They were on my stomach, back, sides, and neck. Went back to the doctor and told it was fungal and was given Diflucan and told to keep putting the original cream on my entire outbreak.
I've now been on the Diflucan for well over a week and the splotches aren't going away. Some have gone completely but I still keep getting newer ones. Now I'm getting smaller bumps on my arms and legs. The entire rash does not itch. The only place it itches is in the back of my neck near my hairline. It gets much more prominent after a shower and it seems that new spots appear. No one has caught this from me so I'm assuming its not contagious since it has been over a month and I sleep in the same bed with my boyfriend every night.
The only thing that I have found that looks like my rash is Pityriasis Rosea. Except that I have multiple herald patches. Can someone please please look at my pictures and help me out? I have a call into the dermatologist but they had no openings so I'm on a waiting list for a cancellation. This is driving me crazy and making me feel so self conscious and I'm confined to wearing turtle necks in public.
