I am getting so upset and frustrated. I do have health issues. Epilepsy, Psoriasis, Borderline Diabetic (taking Metformin) and while I do have psoriasis for the past 6 years, recently VERY recently I am noticing these round (circular) indents popping up here and there. They rainge from about the size of a pencil tip to a pea. It looks like the first layer of skin is gone. It's indented and not going away. In fact it seems as though I notice a few more every day. My main Dermatologist is on maternity leave so I have been seeing another one for a nodule that popped up and was removed. The nodule came back as POSSIBLE churg-strauss systemic vasculitis with an underlying cause of Lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis...so off he sent me to a Rheumo who did xrays and bloodwork and negative. Anyway, so this dermatologist has NO idea what it is (these indents) I am about to lose my mind and cry. It seems I spot more and more everyday :( What is going on? Here are some pics. I took one on my forearm, one on my leg and one on my finger for example. I hope it shows up ok in the pictures.
