Patient: I hope these images help. I noticed them yesterday and felt the symptoms in the morning. I took benedryl to see if that would help, feeling that I felt it was an allergic reaction to something.
Doctor: Thank for your feedback and the pictures.
These look like an exenthema or folliculitis without much inflammation as there is no redness.
Keep a watch, consult your Doctor if there is further development for proper clinical evaluation, examination and management.
Patient: Thank you. Being if it doesn’t get worse, will they go away as I recover?
Doctor: Ideally speaking, they should within 1 to 3 weeks; but if they progress please consult a Doctor to get a proper diagnosis and prescription based treatment.
