I have two different concerns

I Have these marks on my body that kind if look like a ringworm but their not because their not itchy at all or contagious. The biggest one is on my stomach it doesn't go away. If I scratch it it's flaky. Smaller ones are starting to grow. I have them forore than 4 months and no sign of it going away. Is there a cream I can use?

The other thing I'm really worried about is that I have a ball on the left side of my neck. It's been there fir months and I noticed that it grew a little. It really hurts if I touch it!! I'm worried that it can be cancerous.

Anon - Thanks for your questions. Our site helps people advocate for their own health and take steps to be healthy, we don't provide diagnose medical conditions. It's not possible for us to determine what is causing the marks on your stomach or tell you what to use to treat them. Since you are now getting additional marks you really should be seen by a doctor to find out what these are and how to treat them.

In terms of your second question, it is also impossible for us to tell you what the "ball" on the side of your neck is. Whatever it is, it is not normal, and since you say that it's painful and seems to be getting larger you really should have it checked out by a doctor. It could be a simple cyst, a lymph node enlargement or even a symptom of cancer, but you need to be seen by a trained medical professional to find out.

Let us know what you learn after you get a diagnosis. Good luck!
