Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
I can appreciate the hives, but could not appreciate the ring worm lesion.
Can you kindly upload another image where I can appreicate the ringworm infection.
Also, about the hives, it could be a reaction to marijuana, or some other allergen, it is difficult to predict what really caused it. I would advise you to take a combination of Tab. Montelukast+ Levocetirizine once daily at bed time, and also apply Histocalamine lotion on the affected spot. This will help in reducing the hives.
Please feel free to discuss further,

Thank you, I will look into getting that medicine. I have been putting Caladryl on the hives when they appear and it seems to help the itching, but they continue to grow and spread. Each time I get the hives, they move higher up my body. I am afraid they will eventually move to my face and swell my tongue or something of this sort. Is this a possibility? I have attached two pictures. One shows the two small spots that I believe to be ringworm (the lines around the spots are from a bandaid). They have grown smaller in the past few days from Lotrimin. The other picture shows small spots on my leg. I have quite a few of these on my body. I originally thought they were bug bites, but it seems that the hives originate from these bites and grow in size and spread very quickly once they start to grow in size. Should I been concerned about these? They don't appear to disappear like the actual hives do. I am going to stop smoking marijuana for the time being to see if it helps with the hives. In all honesty, is this anything I should very worried about? I am a very healthy person as in I very rarely get sick; however I have some anxiety issues. Am I worrying unneccesarily? Thank you for your help. Oh, and another thing that has begun in the past few days is that my chest feels constricted. I need to take slow, deep breaths or constantly yawn in order to catch my breath. Breathing is not difficult, it just feels like I can't catch my breath. Is this from a reaction or do you think it is just my anxiety? Thanks again.
I saw the pictures. They could be ringworm lesions. It may be the cause of your hives too. Please keep applying lotrimin a few more days along with the above-mentioned tablets. Apart from that I don't think there is any reason you should be worried about. So, please relax and continue the treatment.
I hope it was useful.
