Lets discuss the following three images, and whether or not pharmacy/doctor attention is required.

In the interest of transparency, the picture of the face looked the same as the other two pictures until this morning. The other two are pictures of an arm and a leg.

WHAT ARE THEY?

I love that you'd rather ask people on a forum, than go to the doctors :lol:

Google tells me this is a winner.

NHS tells me I don't need to see a doc unless cream doesn't work.

Thank you, 1FF.

Hope it's not shingles, that'd be awful for you.

Yes, I have.

However, given the profound change in my artistic output since that abominable interregnum I have come to believe that there is a causal link between suffering from the condition and the ineffable spark of creative genius, akin to that observed in those afflicted by syphilis (Flaubert, Beethoven, Goya, etc), and thus I now regard the experience as a blessing rather than a misfortune.

If in 6 months time TractorBoys should produce, say, a lyric opera re-assessing the Ched Evans case via the metaphorical lens of Ajax the Lesser's rape of Cassandra then we may have a strong clue as to the exact nature of his present sickness.

You have face herpes and some blotchy skin.

Special cream for the face herpes and hydrocortisone for the leg/arm.

Skin fungus, try Sel Sun shampoo bladz.

I get this on my back / upper arm from time to time (which apparently are the most common areas to get it). Starts with a couple of little round clusters, and if left for too long will join together in a larger splodge. However usually looks a bit different to TB's pics, less red and angry and more orange.

If that's what it is, then use Sel Sun for a few days in the shower. Buy it over the counter in the chemist. Massage it into the relevant area and leave it there for a min before washing off, it's soon sorted.

I get similar to the images on my arms and legs, itchy as owt. Dunno about Sel Sun but have always used steroid creams and it goes in a couple of days.
