In brief: Skin related

Conditions are pretty tricky and difficult to self diagnose.
I recommend you either see your internist at the minimum or a dermatologist. Good luck. Dr. B.

Believe it or not, it takes quite a bit of schooling and training to be good at it.
Please see your doctor or dermatologist.
