Go for it: Ask her. Most skin diseases are not catching. If you care for her, ask what is going on with her skin and whether SHE thinks is a problem for the relationship. Reassure her. Tell her you think the skin stuff is fine because you like her. Talk openly about this and any other concerns. Make it clear that the skin disease is not a problem for you. This is what any decent lover does.
