Assuming it is: The same diagnosis, antibiotics such as penicillin are used to get rid of the infection. In severe cases, antibiotics may need to be given through an IV (intravenous line). People who have repeated episodes of erysipelas may need long-term antibiotics. But see a dermatologist first! ...Read more
Three days ago, i noticed a red circle on my arm, it's really itchy and it appeared on several more spots on the skin.
I have 2 red smooth quarter sized spots on my left backside upper arm and one red smooth spot on my right arm by my elbow what is it?
Tricky: dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. I go with the process occurrring (which could be infection or insect mediated) and the location to give clues. Bites, ringworm, even syphillis are possible. many other possibilities i Psoriasis if it has scaley parts is possible; eczema if itchy. Reactions if you've had an exposure at JUST those locations, but those seem less likely ...Read more

Small, circular spotted rash, was red in colour now turning brown over the last few days, slightly raised, not painful. On top of arm. What is it?
Ring shaped rash: Sounds like this could be ring worm- a fungal infection if the skin. It's quite common esp in hot environments, and if contact with kids. You might want to try Clotrimazole 1% or other topical anti fungal cream for 10 days. If that doesn't wipe it out, better show it to a doc for definitive evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Penny size red circle on my upper arm, noticed it maybe two weeks ago at the gym. Doesn't itch, not scaly, just a pink, slightly raised coin.
Ring Worm?: Tinea corporis (ring worm) often begins as a circular or oval, red, scaling patch. Usually has central clearing with an active advancing border a few millimeters wide. Lesion shaped like a ring. Responds to daily application of topical antifungals. Could also be an eczema patch which can be treated with topical moisturizers or hydrocortizone cream. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See MD: Could be anything from ringworm (fungal infection), insect bite, drug eruption, doubtful psoriasis in absence of other marks. Make sure it is not lyme disease, etc. Lesion may get bigger, or disappear and show up elsewhere (erythema migrans). Especially important if other symptoms, like feverish, flush, nausea, headache, joint aches, etc. See md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have two dark spots on my big toes (brownish color) - one on each 'knuckle' area of toe. Skin feels slightly rough there;no pain. What is it?
Not likely serious.: It is easy to get little red dots from sucking, from mild injury such as getting pinched, or for no reason at all. Put a warm washcloth on it whenever you think of it, or ignore it. If you do not get injured again, It will probably go away. If not, or if it gets larger or starts to really hurt it might be time to go to a clinic. If anything is coming out of the nipple, go sooner. ...Read more
1 sesame seed size purple spot on toe.2 flat pink dime sized spots on butt, dull testicle ache, had bump on roof for 1 day.Protected sex 4wk ago. Hiv?
Most likely Not HIV: You might have another std (not enough information for conclusive answer was given). 4 wks is not sufficient time for these types of symptoms to show for HIV - at this stage HIV would be more "flu-like" in nature + you used protection. Still if you are concerned see health clinic or regular md for testing. ...Read more
