Please help identify skin condition (pics)

Postby Gregggoo on Mon May 14, 2018 10:38 pm

Hello, I am new here, over the past month I have been developing dry red dots all over my body, in particular my back and arms. It has spread to the front of my torso and my legs, now even my scalp.

Any assistance in identifying this would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

(btw I have an appointment in 9 days)

Hope you'd have some answers in your appointment.. if it's not itchy, likely not eczema... take care!

Yes, it may be eczema. If it's itching and gets worse after scratching, you have excessive sweating on palms and feet it may be the first symptoms you have this disease. I'd recommend you to visit dermatologist as soon as possible and think over before a visit what could cause it, as it's not a simple allergy. It may be caused by genetics or abnormal function of the immune system .
