Im not sure if its 'cutaneous larva migrans' and I sure hope not, cause that sounds scary. but i have a strange horizontal line on my arm. its on the inside of my left forearm about 4 inches from my wrist. its red but it dosnt itch or burn. it goes all the way from the right side almost to the left, its about 2 1/2 inches long but real thin. only 1-2 cm thin. and its raised up about 1 cm. it is a dead straight line, no curves. it is actually kind of hard to the touch. not squishy. its not scaly or peeling, pretty smooth. and I just noticed I have a smaller one on my abdomen now that isnt so straight. like i said neither burn. but they are just creeping me out. i put peroxide on them and then smothered them in triple anti-biotic ointment(neosporin). please help!
