MOM HAS UNEXPLAINED YELLOW BRUISES LEFT UPPER BCK NEAR ARMPIT itching and burning and aching what should we do? Hi i am speaking with my mom female age 65 years old . She is complaining of a peculiar itch (which she just revealed to me right now has been itching mom for years!?!)on her left side of back where bra is near armpit below there. Mom also sees several yellow bruises and is also feeling pain. They seem to have grown in size since yesterday AND THE DAY BEFORE.Shape is elongated and one splatter shape. Pain is involved as well-achiness. She saw her primary care today and he told her not to worry and go next week for an xray. I will withhold what I think she needs to do until you kindly respond.

If it is a scaly rash, many 'splatter' shaped on the back it possibly suggests fungal infection called Pityriasis rosea. Sher needs to avoid using drying agents like soap for a while. Use moisturiser cream over the area. She can take an antihistamine like Tablet Cetrizine 10mg at night over food, with water to relieve her from itching. Show her to the Dermatologist for a thorough examination and appropriate treatment.
