hi all, i have these red bumps on my skin,they look like mosquito bites. but they appear suddenly. the first one i had was on my right arm and it was like mosquito bite, when i press it down it hurts a little bit. but after 3 month it became flat a bit white around and skin color in the middle.
I have these on my chest , asweel as on my head and 3 of them on my face.
Im getting very concern about it,i went to see the dermatologist and he told me that that was nothing to worry about,he said that might be some reaction to something ,and he gave me some antibiotics and steroid cream,its been 3 weeks since i start the treatment,the red color is losing but the raised thing on it is not. please help.
Not common on the head but on the face, yes.Best to get biopsied to have a certain diagnosis. These look granulomatous from the picture, and smear testing for AFB may also help.Do consult your Derm. Psoriasis is another differential and does occur on the scalp.
Today i went to see another derm dr and he told me that could be leprosy or granuloma annulare , I'm very worry about this now and since its been long time i have this i've got biopsed to see whats going on.
i hope everything is ok
I hope is none of that and hope to be something no serious. As far as i remember when i was a teenager i got some skin problems on my skin,my head and face. that time i was 13 years old. i can't remember if it was something similar to this.
Anyway how can i update a new picture of my skin lesion?
thanks a lot Dr
i would like to update a new picture but i can't find the option to do it, the first one i had ,started like a mosquito bite,round and little bit raised, then it expand a bit more bigger,the borders became red a bit raised too and the middle of it remains skin color. now after a long time they became flat,a bit white color around and the middle remains skin color.
'Jessner's lymphocytic infiltration' is not a well understood condition but said to be related to sun induced dermatosis.Anyway it is not a serious condition though the medications give not such good results always.Herewith I am quoting some useful works here.

Oscarito ,You should be happy it is not leprosy. Essentially this condition is benign(Not serious)
Do consult your doc.Best wishes.
sorry to bother you so much,the cream that the derm gave me is the one you suggest on your previous reply,can this ointment be applied on the head? i forgot to ask this to the dr.
he gave me one for the face n one for the chest n arms. but I'm not sure wich one can be apply on the head. or i need a different one?
