It's like. Okay. I get these things that look like I guess a ring warm bite crossed with a hive. Slightly puffed up with a down point in the middle, and sometimes itchy. I get them on the soft white fleshy parts (tops of my boobs, stomache, thighs, under my arms, but no, not down there).....And sometimes it itches. I live in a house where there is no wetness as in they all have bloody noses (i never get one), we all get headaches, wake up with sore throats, all that stuff. So it is a really dry thing, just still. This has happened before but it never spread to my arms. That concerns me.


When I once showed the beginning of it to a doctor he said he'd get me a cream and never said anything else.

Any advice? Confused

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These lesions could be due to fungal infection or it could be keratosis pilaris. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist to evaluate it as without examination diagnosis is tough.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
