Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   I noticed one large patch develop on my upper back couple weeks back, and in the past week, several (~25) smaller red bumps have appeared. These bumps are raised, and some have darker centers. They are located around the larger patch on my back, as well as on my chest, beneath my arm pits, and on my sides. They do not itch nor cause any painful sensation, but these bumps are fairly rough and have dry and flaky skin around it. Any idea what this might be??
Doctor :   It probably is a dermatitis
Doctor :   and the cause should be found out now
