For the last six months, I've been getting these spots on my arms--I've had over forty of them. They start out pink...that's when I first notice them. Then by the next day they look like a bad burn.
Most are roughly circular, and range in size from the diameter of a pencil eraser to the size of a quarter. It's literally like I'm being burned from the inside out...they are hot to the touch and often surrounded by reddened skin, and over a few days, they develop a scab, and then heal.
I've Googled every search term I can possibly think of, to no avail. Anyone have anything like this? Every one has been on my arms, between my wrist and my shoulder.
In addition to RA, I have Grave's Disease (which is in remission), and I'm a type 1 diabetic. I'm on Enbrel, a tiny dose of prednisone, cyclobenzaprine, and ibuprofen, in a addition to insulin for the diabetes.
I'm hoping someone else has had this and their doctor figured it out. I would so appreciate hearing about anyone else's experiences with anything similar. Thanks, and God bless!!
