Odd marks on skin

Good afternoon

I was wondering if I could receive any advise on the pictures I have attached? They come and go which is a bit strange

Thanks for your help,

Kind regards,

Re: Odd marks on skin

Dear Dave,

Thank you for your post. It is a little bit tricky to advise on what this could be, as there is a wide differential diagnosis here. 2 of the 3 pictures show mainly excoriations (scratch marks), with one of them showing small red spots. This could be due to anything from simple itching and scratching, to insect bites, to papular urticaria to the onset of a more generalised rash. I would recommend that you book a consultation with your GP so they can take a history, examine you and provide individualised advice on how to proceed.

Best Wishes,
Dr Penelope Pratsou
