So I have these red spots on my shoulder and my throat for a few months. At first I thought it was nothing but then I started to get these spots on my throat also. I think my old roommate gave me cancer because she had it.
Does anyone know what this is?

Ringworm...that's what this is. You need to buy over the counter athlete's foot cream (cheap and generic is fine)and use according to ringworm use instructions. The pain is you have to treat faithfully for like 4 wks and it can spread to others. Make sure you use fresh linens, shower/bath towels and that you keep great hygiene. It's not big deal and it's just a fungal thing. Smile

It's not ringworm, working on a ranch I know that ringworm do not cluster in small patches like on his neck, and there is no prominate ring or flaking of the skin. Being said im pretty positive cancer is not contagious. But I'm sorry otherwise I'm not sure, possibly sun rash or allergy.
