I noticed it about two weeks ago… But I guess it could’ve been there longer. It is not rough and scaly, but it does feel like a slightly different texture-feels a little softer than the rest of my skin. It has been here for at least two weeks solid ( since I first noticed it). Yes, a strange place-but I am not surprised it is on the left side of my body. The rash, red hands, vein distention, etc. is always much worse on the left side of my body. My left hand and my left foot are always more red, more hot and have more vein distention etc.
