Hi all I'm seeking support and any advice in this as it as been a rough journey for me and I am still new. Here is some background info I am a 28 year old female that suffers from RA have tried many meds but the side effects are worse than the disease so I cope with it. So.. This all began about 6 months ago with a itchy patch just above my jawline about the size of a penny or smaller which I swore was ringworm as I've had it before and so have my kids I started treating with an antifungal and used it for a few weeks but the spot kept getting bigger. I didn't think to much of it because I've had ringworm that took several weeks to get rid of I just kept on with the treatment. During a routine Drs visit she noticed it and said it should be clearing up by now and gave me a different cream which inflamed it and made it so much worse she then suggested a steroid antifungal cocktail which I used for a couple weeks and it totally went away! Well two weeks later it came back with a vengeance and it was spreading but always only one spot. I've never had more than one. I went back to my dr and he said it thinks it's GA and I need to see the dermatologist well I can't get in for an appointment for another two months and this is spreading like crazy ON MY FACE! (It's about the size of a dinner plate now) All the creams they have given me have done nothing or made it worse and it's so bad I want to cry when I look in the mirror. It itches and burns and every day I wake up afraid to see how much bigger it had gotten. Has anyone ever had this in only one spot. Is there anything I can do to spot the spreading? I read about apple cider vinegar and tea tree oils I'm going to pick some up tomorrow and try that any ideas info will help. Thanks.
