Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Age and Gender? Generally it is not a cause for concern. Kindly get yourself examined by a Dermatologist at the earliest to rule out the exact cause so that Proper Treatment can be initiated because without a Proper Physical examination nothing can be Prescribed. It can be due to Eczema, Superficial Fungal Infection, Psoriasis or Vitiligo. Treatment depends upon the cause. See your Doctor if it they are increasing in size or number.
Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Hi, I was diagnosed with salmonella infection in July. The salmonella infection was off high range , i took the antibiotics and recently in september did an Full Abdomen Ultra sound which was clear , Stool test which indicated No Blood / Mucus / WBC / Infection in the stool and a blood test in which everything was clear ESR was in normal range and WBC were in normal range. but i have a deficiency of Vitamin D which came to 14. I losted weight from 71 Kg to 63 Kg from July- sep but in the past few days my weight is now constant as i am taking food now. I still have pain in my stomach / Mumbling sounds / Pain on the sides espically right side. My question is that is this normal and will it go with the passage of time or is it some other disease known as Crohn s disease or Irritable bowl sybdrome or is it to do something with my vitamins.

I recently just switched to a gluten free diet despite testing negative for celiac disease because my intestinal issues were so severe I thought I could possibly have gluten sensitivity still. But yesterday when I had a BM, I noticed the tissue was light pink after wiping. In the past my internal hemoroids would be bright red blood. What could this be?
