Ok.. I've been doing alot of research on the skin conditions that leave a "target shaped lesion" .. and for some reason I just can't find out the specific one that I have on my arm(s)..

It's a reoccuring blemish on my arms that look like targets. They've occured every once in awhile. Probably about the size of a nickle with red around the rim of them and dry like skin in the center. They've happened on my inner arms and I just recently saw one on my inner thigh. I also have a "scratch" like mark on my back that I've had for about the past year or so.. I have no idea if that's relivent but I heard pityriasis usually leaves a blemish on the back..

Like I said.. I've been doing alot or research.. it could be one of like 10 things.. I just want people opinion on what I have.. Seeing I don't have insurence and can't get it checked out professionally.. If you'd like a picture I can take one later on tonight..
