I have developed a rash on both of my inner thighs..I wish I could upload a picture to better describe. They are little irregular shaped almost splatter like rash. They are not itchy at all to the point where I had no idea when I developed it but I’m pretty sure it was probably about two weeks ago. They are slightly raised, if you run your hand over it you can just barely feel it and if you look closely on each individual rash, it is dry and silvery but not flaky.

I had shingles about 5 years back on my thighs and I’m wondering if this is a back cause of it? My father also has psoriasis so I’m wondering if it is the beginning stages of? I really hope it’s not.

Aside from the look of it the rash does not bother me, it’s not itchy nor painful. I am wondering if I should go to the doctor or not.

I would really appreciate some insights from you all!!

Thank you in advance!

Based on your description of silvery scaly lesions and the history it appears that the lesions are most likely psoriatic and you need to cancel or dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis I and advise treatment accordingly
