Weird rashes in different parts of my body
Dr. Im extremely scared, Ive developed weird rashes in different part of my body and Ive attached a pic for you to view, and which im going to explain. The pic on the lest is the side of my left foot, where the rash is a patch, and it was very itchy the very few days, Ive applied some cream, and it stopped itching, however it is still very red. The center photo is my chest, where no rash was present, just three red circles appeared, they dont hurt or itch. They are disappearing with the cream Ive applied. The third pic is my ankle, and there are several red dots that appears on both of my ankles, they do not itch, but did appear on both ankles, and well as a round red spot on my right ankle like the one on my chest. the spotty red rash has also appear on my hands and arms, but not as much. My exboyfriend has a lot of rashes on his body, that he has not treated. his feet have open cuts to a potn where you can see his flesh. He doesnt care to have a doctor look at that,  i think that his skin conditions are bad, and his feet are cracked, and bleeding in really bad conditions. COuld it be possible that i got it from him? What should I do?

Welcome to the Dermatology Expert Forum! Thank you for your question.

Yes, it is possible to acquire a skin infection/infestation from a partner. Existence of an opened wound, or even microinjury of the skin, is an important risk fact.

However, what you described could be sings/symptoms of several non-infectious skin diseases.

It is highly recommended to see a physician for complete evaluation as soon as possible. In the meantime, it is not the best approach to use a random cream, especially if a corticosteroid (or even an antibiotic/antimycotic) is one of ingredients. It could mask the real clinical findings and make establishing of diagnosis more difficult for your dermatologist.
In conclusion, do not be scared, be proactive and take good care of yourself.

Wishing You Optimal Health,
Dr Jasmina Jankicevic
