!!!Heat Rash I Think!!!

I have these red spots that get bigger and fade, but not go away all the way. Im getting scared because they keep showing up. I have two on the back of my thigh, 2 on my chest, and one right where my elbow folds. I looked up heat rash and it says you get it in the same areas Im getting mine in and the way they described how it looked, it matched what mine look like. I am still scared though. They dont seem to be fading and they keep showing up. I hope I dont have some kind of skin disease. If you have any suggestions or anything, please let me know.

!!PLEASE HELP!!

See a doctor - a dermatologist.

Normally I am the type of person who does not go to a doctor unless something is broken or bleeding.

I have a friend who is a dermatologist and he noticed some spots on my skin that I thought were 'nothing'. Wrong.

Those were pre-cancerous and after he convinced me to schedule an appointment with my regular doctor they found other spots that are basal cell carcinoma.

I'm told that treatment is very successful but I'm so glad that I didn't waste any time before getting to a doctor.

Could they be hives?

SOCKS12345...thank you sooooo much. They are hives and I would have never thought of that without you. I looked hives up and it looks just like what I have and it says they aren't serious and can be treated.

Thanks again...my problem is over.
