my 22 year old son has had recurring ulcers on his hands for the past year and a half. They break out on his fingers wrists or forearms, are dime sized or slightly larger, and are painful. They last for weeks, then fade, only to reappear in another location a week or two later. They do not appear to be contageous, or accompanied by any other symptoms, and so he does not want to go see a doctor.
