I would like to know if anyone knows what my skin condition is. I have attached a photo. It is flat, round and flakes. It goes red when hot and is spreading. I have had this for a number of years and it started in my inner thighs. It has now (within the last 6 months) progressed down the inside of my legs and is also on my arms, mostly on the lower bottom part of my arms. I also have a few spots coming up on my abdomen. It is very rarely itchy. Just looks unsightly and is spreading more quickly and extensively than at any previous time! I have tried various solutions (Tea Tree, Oregano Oil etc.) and Tricortone (only made it go a bit opaque but back to normal when stopped which tells me it is not an allergic condition - I think?).
Not really that contagious since host resistance is a factor here.More an individual getting it, though there is an yeast associated- and sure does get transmitted in the susceptible due to excessive sweating and humidity.
