Hi all, about a month ago I got some weird marks appear on both my arms, there is one on each arm and they're about double the size of a 10p coin. One is on my forearm and the other one is on my bend where my forearm joins bicep. I went to the doctors who thought it was ringworm as they're almost a perfect circle and have a darker ring around the edge, well the left one has this the right one is more red all over. They prescribed me tablets and cream (terbafine) tried this for a few weeks but no change. I went back again and they said it could be eczema or psoriasis so i tried a steroid cream (fucibet) for that, still no luck or change. The one on my right arm is a lot more red and inflamed. I also tried tea tree oil which looked like it may be working but it seemed to just dry the skin out and still leave the redness underneath so I stopped using it. I'm lost as to what this could be as it isn't spreading and hasn't got any bigger but nothing seems to cure it, any ideas? I did start of extremely itchy but not it is not itchy just a little sore when touched. If there's a way I can post photos of it someone let me know and I'll show you.
