There are pinkish looking rash on my skin but has been there for over four months? It does not stick out of the skin at all to the touch?
Skin carcinoma has irregular boarders, edges, usually darken to an almost brown-black color, can be scaly, crusty, a very common skin cancer , generally found in fair skin color persons, who have been over exposed from the sun. Ultrviolet light such as a tanning bed may result in malignant melanomas, very agressive, even fatal, difficult to treat due to late detection rates. You've most likely seen a typical skin cancer/tag on the older population of society and they look like huge moles overgrown, found on dorsal (back side), face or extremities (legs-arms-hands). Some other types may appear as a very light pink-red color to a purple-ish hue, to blue , singular or multiple in number, generally smooth,called either basal cell, or squamous cell carcinoma (cancer). These can be scraped, biopsied,or imaged, then specimen is sent to a lab for cell typing, staging,treatment options if necessary. A rash is also pink, may be itchy,sometimes painful, causes can be due to allergic reaction, a change of detergent, deoderant change, new soap, new clothing or a material, bed-bugs, new medication, scabies--which appear for the most part on the arms and chest area, they are communicable--picked up somewhere else, from another person, dirty linen, infrequent bathing, in a hospital or in the public, yes they jump and spread. See your doctor for confirmation, hydracortizones may be all you need for a typical rash of unknown origin. Wish you well,
