I noticed today that I have two patches of raised red skin

Customer Question

Hi. I noticed today that I have two patches of raised red skin on my upper chest, one of which looks very bright in colour. It’s about the size of a slightly larger 5p. I haven’t been sunbathing.
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, what are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: Nothing
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a dermatologist about this?
Customer: no, I only saw it today
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: I have fairish skin, freckles, I do go brown though
