    My wife developed a red circular scaly patch on the back of her calf a month ago. It has now developed into a full body rash with small ones all over her body and it itches a little. I have read that it could be anythign from pitharyius rosea to syphillis. Would appreciate any insight as if there is a worry for this as an STD?

    Thanks,

    Has she seen the Dermo? If so what did the Dermo have to say about it?
