I got my herald patch in March 2008 on the back of my thigh. I had no idea what it was so I just used a moisturiser to keep the dryness down adn carried on as normal. It used to become very agitated and sore when I walked a lot as my trousers rubbed on it, but it was never itchy.
Over that summer everything was fine, the patch was still there but not bothering me. Then I moved to university in October 2008 and was constantly ill, with sniffles, headaches or sore throats all the time. I was quite tired too. But I put all this down to Fresher's Flu, not eating well enough and the fact that its hard to get enough sleep in halls anyway !
Then in December 2008 I noticed a few smaller patches on my forearms and within a month I was covered. They are all over my arms, shoulders, neck, back, stomach, chest, and thighs. I went to the doc and she diagnosed me before I even sat down !
I did some research and most people seem to have it for a maximum of 6 months and I wondered if anyone on this forum had had it for nearly a year like me or had ther herald spot so long before getting any other patches. Am I weird ?
