I have blotchy raised skin, how to get rid of it ?

On my back, there has formed an area of blotchy spots, muttled together. The skin is discolored and slightly raised. It is not itchy. It started as a small area of blotchy, raised, discolored spots, and has gotten bigger over the last few months. I have two small circles of it on the inside of my left arm as well. I am not irritated by it whatsoever. I am just concerned because the area seems to be getting bigger/more spots are forming.

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The blotchy raised area of skin can be a sort of infection due to fungus/bacteria also.Since it is not itchy the reason will be difficult to figure out without seeing it in person.The better option is to consult a Dermatologist who will examine you and advise treatment accordingly.
Thanks

On my upper body, blotches of discolored skin has formed in patches that slowly begin to spread throughout my back and stomach. I ve had it for a couple years and since then it has been getting worse. The patches of discolored skin is slightly darker and it peels a lot like I m scaling. It doesn t irritate me, but it has been spreading. I have seen a dermatologist , but the ointment given seems to be making it worse. I want to know what it is and how I can get rid of it?

Hi, I m into boxing, and a couple of weeks back I had a bit of a skin reaction to a pair of gloves I used. It left blotchy rashes in small clusters on both of my hands. I expected it to go away in a couple of days like a sweat rash, but about two weeks or so later it s still there. Right now it s very dry and flaky, but if I m in any sort of warm condition or if I try and wash it the rash turns red again. It s not itchy other than towards the eveningtime. How can I get rid of it? It s so unsightly.

Hi, I have blotchy skin and I was wondering how I could clear it up. When I was little, my mom took me to a bunch of doctors, and they all said that it was probably because I was mixed with different races and that my skin tone never mixed into one tone. So can you can clear it up?
