red, itchy rash, what is it?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had this red itchy rash on my neck for a little over a month, it feels more velvety than dry. I'm a 22 year old female, and I have been putting Vasoline on it for about two weeks (I try to do it as many times a day as I can, but some days I forget so it might only be once before bed). Vasoline has been helping, as it doesn't have as defined of edges as it used to. (Also, it looks like its peeling in the picture, but its just because I put some Gold Bond on there today hoping that might help! Not actually peeling all!)

    Macular seborreic keratosis ?

    I just went to the dermatologist for something similar to yours and that's what she diagnosed me with . Very benign age spot

      Yes there is treatment , it's cosmetic , search it, there are 3 different ways a dermatologist or plastic surgeon can remove it , but remember that when these start to appear it will happen again.

      I'm pondering when I'll start to remove them too.
