Brief Answer:
Can you upload an image for review?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for contacting us at healthcare magic.

I have reviewed your information fully. To appropriately weigh in, I will need to review an image of these lesions/spots. This way, I can provide a personalized and helpful response. It is very difficult to comment about what the rash is, the cause and what product will address it without seeing it actually.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
