Dennis Walter on Aug, 2, 2014:
That sound like a Fixed drug eruption
From this study (10 months ago):
There are red circles that seem to keep getting bigger on my arms, leg, stomach, backend,shoulder,and my neck! They are not going away and getting bigger. The doctors have given me different diagnosises and the most recent is that I have ringworm, but because methotrexate weakens the immune system(it is an immune suppressent) that the ringworm is spreading quickly and getting bigger!
From this study (2 years ago):
I started taking the methotrexate yesterday. I have a fine raised red rash on my hands up to my elbows. It's itchy but not really bad.
