About a year and a half when I was doing a musical play, my friend commented on my neck saying that "Lidia I think you got purple make up on your neck" and that how it all started. I never realized I had that patch of something on my neck. I thought it was dirt and took a shower and let it be. After a few months of ignoring my neck, it started to get itchy. I been having a lot of Dan-drift and patches of it on the back of my head. My mother points out that a black patch is growing on the side of my neck. I went to a skin specialist and they put my on a cream called Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment USP, 0.1% I put it on 3 times a day. They don't know what it is. It iches now and then and when I touch it, it feels really rough compared to my skin. I feel like is just getting bigger and it wont go away. It been a year about to be two with this thing on my neck. I'm 17 and this is really making my feel really self-conscious.
