Red patch on back with itching. What is this?
Question: My skin has been irritated the last few days and then this formed on my skin today on my back. Minor itching
Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for the query and photograph. I can see there is a well defined red patch on your back. It is appearing like a fungal infection. I would like to know the following things. 1. Is this the only patch or there are other lesions also on chest area? Do you see any fluid coming out from the lesions? I am asking the above to rule out shingles. Thank you
