For a long time I have had shiny red skin around my cuticles that becomes red and inflamed. I thought this happened to everyone, but now I am not so sure. My cuticles have very few wrinkles, and becomem totally smooth when I am overheated. Here are pictures: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=21mhvrm&s=5#.UrXySBySOsMhttp/tinypic.com/view.php?pic=rm5vnr&s=5#.UrXxyhySOsM Not sure if it is relevant, but I am just about to turn 24 and have had primary Raynaud's for 15 years.
I have been having these red bumps appear on my skin for months. They appear in groups and sometimes just a bump on its own (Like in the picture). If it is a group, it will often be in a row, and in this pattern:
Bump (two inches of space) Bump (one inch of space) bump. They occur every couple of weeks, although I did have several months in between outbreaks recently. They are slightly itchy & slightly sore. Usually, they range between a half an inch to two inches in size. They have no entry point like a bite. When they fade they turn to bruises. They have occurred on my breasts, neck, shoulders, lower legs, stomach, back.View Thread
Thank you, Doctor. I went to a derm but at that time they had just faded to bruises and he was very rude haha. It made me feel embarrassed about seeking help, but I will go again the next time they appear. My family doctor thought they could be Erythema Nodosum, but she wasn't sure which is how I got referred to the derm. Is there any condition that is similar to Erythema Nodosum but occurs on other areas of the body and isnt horribly painful, more just annoying?View Thread
