It’s in both of my mums arms. Itches like crazy. She had it about a month and it’s spread

Not sure OP but if she’s had it that long, she should see a GP

Obviously can’t really tell over the internet but it looks a bit like ringworm to me. Could she pop in to a chemists tomorrow to have it checked by the pharmacist?

It looks a bit like psoriasis. Mine is itching like anything right now

Later on it forms into plaques on the surface, but this looks like mine

Ring worm / fungal but I'm not a dr.

Some anti fungal cream while awaiting a drs appointment may help.

Yes I think fungal too. My husband had something really similar on back of neck

Ring worm. Shingles. See a doc
