I am so glad you thought to a). go to the ed, b). take pictures. Hey, if Lynnwood does post them, we could start a thread with a contest entitled.... Connect the spots! Thank the Lord you aren't itching.
ps. i have my blue marker ready!
You poor dear, but thanks for sharing. Your rash looks very similar to the 2 or 3 raised white spots I had from my last, and hopefully final, sun exposure rash. Mine come on my arms from driving into the sun, but the rare spot, circumscribed by a reddish circle, goes away quickly, and one time I was able to scruff off the white spot like it was a pimple. Now I am inspired to remember to use my cell phone to take a picture for my dr. I started getting sick way before cell phones were invented, teehee I have been on prednisone (5mg) daily for the past 3 years, so that helps alot. Now I couldn't live without that stupid phone. I am on my daughter's family add a line share plan which I love, except I got busted for overages on their bill to the tune of $106 in Sept. You should have heard the Verizon folks laugh at the irony of that one! She said if it happens again she will have to take it away for a month. I'd rather be grounded but she said I would just sneak out.
hugs to all,
