Spots on the leg that itches, do not spread, have similar on collar area with red ring around it. Remedy?

I have a few spots on my skin(mostly legs) that is hard to see, a small clear mole looking spot that itches. I ve had them for awhile My boss said he had some appear around his collar area that was burned off, and was told they were a result of being in the sun alot when younger. (I m a 53 yr old male) It sounds like the same thing. They don t spread, but I have a couple on my calf , and inside of my knee and have had them appear around my collar area. at the begining of the week, one of them grew to about nickel size, now has a red ring around it, and the circular area of skin is dry and very itchy.

Hi ,
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for writing in.
You seem to have prurigo nodularis .
Oral and topical steroid would help.
Take antihistaminic like Tab Allegra twice or thrice daily.

Consult your general practitioner or dermatologist for prescription medicines.
Hope this helps.
Wishing you good health.
