I noticed it at 22yrs old. It was the size of a dime and on my left ankle. It didn't bother me but it looked like ringworm. Over the next year it developed on my shins and the original spot on my ankle doubled. Several doctors and creams later, I was told it would go away by itself. Well 2years later is spread again and I was diagnosed with granuloma annulare. The cream was an expensive placebo. I was told I need to take steroids now. I'm not willing to do that. Some days are better than others, some days I look like a creature. Not much information on the causes of treatment of this. Bug bites make it worse. That I do know. I live in Florida. It has gotten worse now, covering most my lower legs and feet. My fingers have developed marks as well. We can figure this disease out together. There has to be an answer. The skin is the largest organ and a reflection of your overall health. I'm 30years old. My health is very important to me. I'm thinking it has to do with my reynauds phenomenon. Another rare condition. I'm not a doctor by any means but I do have common sense. It feels weird but doesn't hurt. It gets worse under stress or intense heat. Such a weird disease, let's figure this out!!!
