I have no idea if this is even related but the timing is uncanny if not.... I have in the past four or so months developed some mystery red/purple patches on my legs. Mainly lower/calves and one patch that looks a bit like ringworm on my knee. They're a little rough but not scaly and disappear when I press them (but then come back). My GP diagnosed psoriasis and prescribed betnovate which didn't work at all - in fact ended up burning. I also tried diprosalic and elocon which friends had. Again, no effect, apart from bleaching the skin around the patches.
My friend thought ringworm so I then tried various fungal creams - still the same...
Any ideas anyone? I'm at a loss! Thank you
