For the past 11 months i have this red spot that looks like a pimple at first but then daily it increases with size . its gotten so large almost covering my whole upper chest above my cleavage. My regular doctor assured me it was not ring worm and gave me son cortizone cream that helped. But it keeps returning in the same spot next to a very dark brown almost black mole that is located on my jugular notch.

The growth is bright red almost inflamed and is puffed up from my regular skin and has a texture to it.

I live in a rural area in southwest NM where i have to drive to elpaso tx or Albuquerque nm for any real medical conditions. Needless to say the doctors here arent very knowledgeable. So anything would help at this point.

    You need to get an appointment with a dermatologist to have it assessed and biopsied.  Please do it as soon as you can!  Best of luck o you!
