Go to your local pharmacy for the phamacist to have a look. They may be able to suggest a topical creme to use. If they think you need something stronger than over the counter meds they will suggest you go see your G.P.

Wow it sort of looks like Shingles which I just had. It started out like that and grew to a big nasty sore. It comes from The Chicken Pox virus and can be contracted if you never had Chicken Pox. (It is highly contagious if you never had the Chicken Pox. If you had Chicken Pox like I did, you can get it because the virus lives in your body. It might not be this at all. It just looks the same when the shingles started for me. It can be brought on my stress which is what happened to me. Sometimes it's called the old peoples disease, but you can get it in your forties or fifties. It needs to be treated with Valtrex an
antiviral medication. If it doesn't go away or gets worse you need to got to a dermatologist.

I think it looks like ring worm to me!! You better go have that looked at. It looks like it has gotten bigger and more red since your first picture. It is contagious. Check yourself really good and make sure you haven't spread it to other areas of your body.

Do get in to see a Dr tipsout.

I was a bit hesitant to have a look, after the guy with the thingy on his penis.


Does look like ring worms to me too.
But could also be a spider bite of some kind also, is it hot to touch?

My oldest has a facebook page, but rarely gets on it. My youngest is still into the Myspace page stuff. He is on often.

Ya, unfortunately I don't think this was a joke, sick, yes, but not a joke. I think this guy has no common sense.

I'm not sure if it is ringworm and contagious because I have had it on my skin for about 3 years now. Sorry, I forgot to mention that earlier.

WHAT? You have had this for 3 years?? And you have never had a Dr look at it?

Oh I would definately get in with a Dr. Unless it doesn't bother you since it has been around for 3 years.
