Does anyone know what this might be? Does anyone have anything like this?
Hmm, I don’t think we can tell much by looking. What does it feel like, does it come and go, is it rough and scaly? The usual questions. It does seem to be an odd place for it to show up though, don’t you think?
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.
I don’t have a bloody nose, but every day for at least two weeks, I have to blow my nose and there is blood in it. It is worse on the left side. I have no idea if this is related or not-but it does seem to be about the same timing as this patch of skin on my face.
I do have a similar patch of skin on my right cheek, it is just less prominent. I have now noticed the same thing on my chest. It was the same colour as the skin patch on my cheek, but yesterday it was red – I will attatch a pic. Today it is back to same colour as cheek.
The first pic has a small vertical red line right in the middle of the front of my neck. This happens after an intense stinging feeling there. The second pic shows the patch of skin on cheek and chest. Third pic is close-up patch on chest.
Finding more strange patches of skin when I look closely…
