Skin Care and Diseases

Red sores

02/13/2006

Question:

I have red sores on my body legs, arm & sides they vary in size yet come to almost like a scab.

Answer:

Unfortunately, I really can't help you make a diagnosis from the description that you have given.  I would suggest that you see your board certified dermatologist close by, as soon as possible.  Any time there are multiple sores over your body you run the risk of significant infection.  Please consult your Yellow Pages if you do not have a direct referral. 

Good luck!
