Thank you doctor,
I have attached new pictures. You will see that it is affecting same areas on both arms. It is there for 1 to 2 weeks. It is hard to count, but I think there are around 15 to 20 lesions. The ankle rash was different and went away quickly with the use of Betamethasone. I do not have flaky scalp or a history of fever.
