Thanks for writing to health care magic.

1. Since how long are you having these spots?
2. Are they increasing in size?
3. Are they raised above the skin or not?
4. Are they itchy?
5. Do you have any other associated complaint like fever, cold etc?
6. Do they disappear and reappear?
7. Do you have any breathing difficulty?

If possible kindly post picture of the spots. You can upload them using this site's uploader.
