I have two of these that appeared January time. They don’t itch, not blistered and don’t hurt.
I have one on my lower leg - shin. And one on my foot. Appear to be getting bigger??
I’m a well known GP dodger but have googled and can’t find anything the same?

I burnt my leg on a hot water bottle once. Didn't notice at the time. Looked pretty similar and stuck around for ages. Though mine was kind of greyish by the end when it recovered... confused

I don't have a clue. It's weird that they are the same size and lower body.

No burns, no trauma, literally woke up one morning and they were there and they will not disappear. Have tried hydrocortisone but it hasn’t made any difference. I’m all googled out!

Could it be fungal? Some canestan cream might be worth a try?

Granuloma annulare

Had it myself.

Mine developed the empty circle in the middle as they got bigger. They develop on bony areas. Shins feet knees heels etc

I don’t think it is granuloma. My guess is ringworm, a fungus, or eczema. But def get to gp or try pharmacist.

Looks like dermatofibromas. I have them mostly on my legs, the one in the picture is on my right shin and about the size of a drawing pin head. They just sort of appear for me. Don't hurt but don't look very nice until they go a darker colour then look like raised moles.

It's hard to tell how big they are from your photos. My guess would be it's a dermatofibroma. If you're worried ask a pharmacist or GP to take a look

OP you need to go to the doctor with these ASAP.They are not fungal or allergy/eczema related due to itch .They are not dermatofibromas due to the size and texture.Its possible is a granuloma annular but in my experience they would changed must faster than a few months.Don't mean to alarm you but there are other things that this could be
