Herald Patch weepy?

Posted , 2 users are following.


Very thankful to find this group. I am still waiting on my official diagnosis but I feel like I have finally figured it out with this group.

My question is did anybody's herald patch weep? I have three potentially. One on my inner upper arm and two on my thigh. They have been very itchy in the past and now they sting and weep. I am wondering if it is because I have scratched them to the point of infection?

Like everyone else I am going completely nuts and have tried everything to figure out what this is. The closest thing I came to before discovering PR was a gluten/celiac rash. But the herald patch and it's timing is what seems to set it apart.

I recently had surgery to remove my gallbladder and was very stressed leading up to it. The first patch reared it's ugly head about a week before my surgery. It is difficult to know which symptoms went along with the impending rash because I felt like crap after surgery.

thanks for any insight! i am very curious to see what the DR. says with the tests they took.

    PR is not a weepy rash. Infection is a possibility. I personally have never heard of three herald patches. However, PR is a weird disease. Mine lasted 14 months, it is supposed to leave by itself in 6 to 12 weeks.

    Hang in there! You said you were waiting for a definite answer, you had a scrape biopsy? Keep us informed! If it is PR try some PrrEze. That is what worked for me!

      Just an update. I do not have PR. My diagnosis is Staph infection. Likely from my hospital visit for surgery on my Gall bladder. Thanks for answering. It was the weepy part that threw me off on this. Best of luck to all going through this. Skin conditions and rashes are just torture plain and simple. I feel for all of you.
