As above i have had 7 different visits to my doctors who have tried different steroids and creams to no avail tbh ive lost confidence in my doctors surgery. They have now referred me to dermatology which will take a few months. The 2 main bigger spots, one is a red ring round normal coloured skin with the spot in middle, can be itchy as hell at night. I was hoping i could upload pics as would help for people to see.

      Hi bocabay7, you mentioned that you have tried various creams. Where you prescribed antifungals as wells? It might help to exclude a fungal infection like ringworm.

      Did you go for camping or did you work outdoors? Pets can also carry ticks. You might be vulnerable if you allow your pet to sleep in your bed. Some tick bites might look similar. You could search the net for images of tick bites.  Ticks might transmit Lyme disease and it is important to get treatment after a bite. You might find this leaflet interesting:

      Good luck, and should you find out what the cause of the rash is would be great if you could give an update. It might be helpful for others that will read your post.

      Btw, to help with the itching you might want to try Calamine lotion.
