A mega-dose of a non water soluble vitamin would work great since you can store it in fat - like vitamin A. However, vit C and zinc are water soluble so you'd just pee out the excess and be deficient again in a few days without a regular dose. (more)

Looks a lot like ringworm to me. Go see a doctor, they can take a culture and test it and then give you some antifungals if that's what it is. Hint. If you go to http://images.google.com and search for ringworm, you'll see very similar... (more)

Holy crap. I think you just diagnosed something I've had for years that no dermatologist could ever figure out. In fact I'm scheduled for a "punch" biopsy in a few weeks (it's as pleasant as it sounds). Mine looks exactly like your photos.

If your new diet is a drastic shift from your old diet, it can trigger major changes in various hormone levels; especially over the short to medium term. This can also explain the seemingly targeted nature of the rash. I won't give the vague... (more)

That's a weird one. If this happened since changing your diet, have you tried rolling back to a previous working version? Maybe you're reacting to a food or supplement. Could you have unbalanced vitamins D and A?

When you starve your "bad" bacteria of sugar, they don't die -- they permeate the gut and invade other tissues in search of sustenance. If you're going down the low-carb abyss, STOP. Climb out while you still can. (more)
