I have developed these round brown spots . I have one on my forehead, one on my cheek (face) and several on my fingers and the back of my hands. When they first developed they were red, inflamed and extremely itchy. They redness and the itching went away after a few days but the brown spots remained. Now every so often the become red, inflamed and extremely itchy again. Like some sort of attack. These things are making me miserable. Do you have any idea what it might be and how I might treat it OTC? I don't have medical insurance and going to the dr. is very pricey...

Hi Anon -

This certainly does sound miserable! Unfortunately, without an exam it is difficult to guess what's going on. See these slideshows for more information -

One of our members put together links to help find free or low cost healthcare - FREE/LOW-COST MEDICAL CARE, INCLUDING COUNSELING

And, Dr. Tareen mentioned on another post that she volunteers at a free clinic in the St. Paul area. She suggests calling a private office or University to see they have a discounted rate for patients with no insurance.

Be sure to check back in to let us know what you find out. Sharing your experience will really help others in this community.
