Wow.. so many people have spots! Mine started on my stomache- they are pinkish, dry, and about dime sized. they do not itch or bother me, but they seem to be spreading both up and down. not sure if i should go to the doctor, but they've reached my crotch area. from what i've researched online, it's definitely not rosea. Any ideas?

I had the same thing, i think i noticed it after my second child around 23-25. It does look like paint spaches, however it is in the same location and the marks fade and reappear. The marks appear pinker with shower but it doesnt really itch, or hurt, or anything. I hate the way it looks though, i look like i got some type of disease. I was afraid it might be a STD i caught from a toliet or some reaction i had from medicine such a presidone, topamax, hydrocone, ect. Then figured I caught it from the swimming pool or the toliet. I have always been pretty healthy but I had lots of lab work done and all my levels were all good. I was tested for STD's and came up clean.

I have a big spot on my rib cage the size of a half dollar it is brighter than all the other spots I have on my stomach. I went to the doctor and she said there's no cure for it and I'd just have to wait for it to go and that it can come and go. The name is Pityriasis Rosea I'm a 15 year old guy and this sucks cause it's summer time..

I have this too,im 17, doesn't hurt or itch but theres a few different patches and the older patch is starting to turn dry and scaly and spreading outward but looks like its slowly going away. older patch is on my inner thighs and big patch on my stomach and sides of my abdomen. its really annoying and i am going to the doctor to rule out other things but it looks like pityriasis rosea

I have spots on my stomach right under my breasts, the inside of my legs near my crotch, one on the back of my shoulder & 2 on my back just showed up. I have really tan skin & I tried to go tanning to see if they would get color but they seem to look more white & stand out even more. I've tried antifungal creams too & that did nothing. I got them after having my first child who is now 1... I don't know what to do about it & its extremely embarassing. I've researched on the internet & all that keeps coming up is lichen schlerosis & it said it can keep spreading on your body if not treated to control it but you have it your whole life! What to do?!

about 2 days ago i started noticing those same exact spots pinkish around my stomach and some spots around my back.. i went to a regular Dr. he said this could be the 2nd stage of Chicken Pox. but in those few days i have been eating differently and was taking vitamin, so that also could be an allergic Reaction to something i ate. he said if this doesn't clear in about 6 days i should see a dermatologist.

I'm going to see a Dermatologist next week. however if you please found out for sure what is it please inform us!!!..
thanks,

The worst thing i did was google my symptoms and such. The internet can make alot of things scary. i went to the doctor for redish pink dots on my stomach and chest. I was scared as hell to think of it being cancer or hiv or something. What he said it was is Cherry hemangioma basically its a blood vessel thing that pops up as you get older which is normal. I got a blood test anyways to see if its anything like Hiv or whatever and i just got my results back and im clean as a whistle. If you do find something different in your body or your skin definatly make a Dr. apointment and such. Just the reassurence that its nothing major is a relief. Stay safe everyone and dont stress about it until the doctor says so.

Its really really rare to pick up stds from the toilet or anything from the pool. A virus dies if it doesnt have a stable temperature or a host to spread in. Viruses wont sustain life on surfaces for more than a minute or so, and pools have so many chemicals in it i wouldnt worry too much. Get a Doctors opinion if youd like.

I am dealing with the same thing. These spots started on my chest and when I went to the doctor, she had said it was a fungus of some kind and they never went away. Now I am having them show up on my belly...Frustrating. Anybody hear anything different?

Sounds like the same thing I have. I use Pevaryl Foaming Solution, just over the counter at the chemist, it's a bit weird to use as you put it on after you have a shower while your still wet and leave it on don't wash it off. Use for 3 days and mine's usually totally gone, you use it again in a month to help keep it away, then you're suppose to use it to prevent it coming back but mine always comes back cause I don't do it. I usually get anywhere up to 12 mths between spots and if it's bikini weather at least I know it'll be gone in a couple of days. I tried all the creams and it only makes them fade then when you stop they come back. Hope it helps.

I'm a 12 year old girl and just recently discovered some pinkish colored pencil sized dots on my stomach and breast area I am waiting to see if it spreads because there's a chance I could be getting the chicken pox.
