Raised Red Lesions on Forehead
Raised Red Lesions on Face
Two years ago, practically overnight, three raised red lesions appeared on my forehead at the hairline. After a couple of antibiotic treatments which did nothing, I was referred to a specialist and was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus following a biopsy. I have tried Plaquenil, Prednisone and various Topical Steroid Creams. The prednisone worked for a short period of time with the lesions nearly disappearing but then the lesions returned after two weeks worse than before.
The lesions have spread over my scalp, down the side of my right ear, one on both cheeks and my chest. They look a bit different to the original lesions on my forehead and my specialist now thinks that it might be ringworm. I have been for a skin scrapping test (results due in three weeks). I have been using tinea cream for a few days now but it is getting worse than ever. My husband has had one small hard persistent lump at a time in his beard area pretty constantly for the past two years too, the hair pulls out easily. The lump would persist then go and another one appear in a different place.
At the same time the original lesions appeared we adopted an adult stray cat.
If anyone can shed any light on this it would be much appreciated!
