Thanks for your query.

Kindly do describe the spot you have in little more detail.

Do you mean a radiologically hot spot?
Is the spot hotter than surrounding areas?
How big is the spot?
Since when did you notice this spot?
Is there any colour change in the skin over mentioned spot?

Some more details in your words would be helpful.

Thanks for the information.
The areas you have could be due to mild damage in the superficial nerves supplying the affected areas.
This can occur due to vitamin deficiency or due to anti-cholesterol medications.

Vitamins like B complex when deficient interfere with nerve functioning and present with patchy areas of paraesthesia. Daily multivitamin supplements will solve the issue without any complications.

Anticholesterol medications tend to decrease the fat which is essential for the insulation around a nerve. Lack of insulation leads to function impairment and lead to the above problem. This is a rare side effect and will subside with multivitamin supplementation without changing the anticholesterol medications.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
