I AM 23 YRS OLD AND PREGNANT AND I HAVE RECENTLY NOTICED SOME SMALL, RED CIRCULAR IRRITATIONS ON MY SKIN. THE FIRST ONE APPEARED ON MY RIGHT INNER THIGH.... WITHOUT REALIZING I SCRATCHED AND SCRATCHED AND IT BEGAN TO BLEED. A FEW DAYS LATER IT WAS BIGGER. AT ITS BIGGEST IT WAS SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN A DIME. IT STOPPED ITCHING AND TURNED PURPLISH AS MOST OF MY SCARS DO. THEN I STARTED NOTICING MORE OF THESE ITCHY PATCHES ON MY OTHER THIGH, STOMACH, BACK, CHEST, NECK AND ON THE INSIDE OF MY UPPER ARE, NEAR THE PIT. THEY ARE ITCHY BUT SCAB UP AND STOP ITCHING FOR A FEW DAYS AND THEN BEGIN TO ITCH AGAIN. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT COULD BE...I HAVE DONE SOME MINOR INTERNET RESERCH AND THEY LOOK LIKE SMALL RINGWORM BUT ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS. MY DAUGHTER AND HUSBAND BOTH SLEEP WITH ME AND NEITHER OF THEM ARE EXPERIENCING ANY OF THESE STRANGE ITCHY SPOTS. JUST WONDERING IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS OF WHAT THEY MAY BE.
