Mauix posted:
Hi. I have several red, itchy patches or more like boils appearing on my arm, wrist and palm. I first thought it was just a mosquito bite necause it was itchy. The day after, it was redder and little bumps were growing. Later that day, I noticed red patches underneath my palms. By nighttime, there were patches on my wrist too. My middle finger has a boil and I have difficulties in forming a fist and holding anything using my right hand. Help please? I could not sleep at night because it seems like its crawling everytime I close my eyes.
