I have developed a few red rash raised spots on my right bicep, forearm and on my left bicep. The have been there for a week. Not itch, no blister. Just two of them seem to be "flaking" 6 of them are like a cluster of bumps and one is just a single spot.
Almost five months ago I have a scare with an unprotected oral sex encounter I had. I did full blood tests at the two day mark and then at the 12 week mark. All negative. Never had a rash at all until now.
1.- What can this be?
2.- Should I be concerned?
3.- My dermatologist cant see me until next week.
I went to the doctor today. Dermatologist. He saw it and immediately said it looked like pityriasis rosea. Prescribed some steroid cream and scheduled for three weeks to follow up.
I got back home and now I have more spots.
Is this normal?
