It started off with this little itchy dark (im black so it appeared dark) patch on the back of my neck. About 2 months ago. Stupid me decided to scratch it and it grew bigger. It peeled off and than it looked like this. (PIC DOWN BELOW)

I continued to scratch (not obsessively) and it grew larger and than became a whitish color and had some thick skin in the center. The thick skin then came off after I picked at it (I KNOW, GROSS). Meanwhile a felt a small lump right above the rash basically right under my hairline and that was when I started to freak out! A lump (i think that's it?) and a rash???!

I looked it up and I saw all types of craziness which the worst being this thing called mycosis fungoides?! It's basically a type of of cancer! I know I know what youre thinking. She must be crazy. It's a lymphoma type of cancer I think.

But no worries - I will be seeing my doc in a few days.😩

    Hi. I have Hypopigmented Mycosis Fungoides, so what I have is white spots on my skin. If you’re freaking out, I suggest you see a Dermatologist for a biopsy. That’s the only way to know if you have MF.

    There is an MF support group on Facebook if you’re interested.

    Good luck to you and don’t google it.

    It doesn't look too scary to me , but to lessen the itching you can apply pure shea butter
