Weird skin problem
An_258261 posted:
I've been having these patches appear on my skin. They're raised, only slightly itchy, and on my legs. Sometimes they're hollow circles, sometimes solid or dotty and not a complete line. They go away when I take benadryl and I'm off my feet. They started to appear this afternoon after I had shaved. I did recently move, and I was diagnosed with a viral infection earlier this morning.
atti_editor responded:
What you describe could be due to a number of different things. Have you seen your doctor or dermatologist about these patches? Do they always appear after shaving? Or perhaps after touching something or using a certain product? (For example, shaving cream, lotions, etc.) Your symptoms could be due to psoriasis , eczema , or other types of dermatitis that often cause red, itchy, scaly skin. The links above will provide you with more information. This slideshow on common adult skin problems may also be helpful to take a look at.

It would be best to speak with your doctor to determine the cause and get the proper treatment. Please let us know how you are doing!
