What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

When a person complains of a lesion on the skin, the healthcare provider will want to know:

  • how long the lesion has been present
  • where the lesion is located
  • whether there is one or more than one lesion
  • the description of the lesion
  • how the lesion started and whether it has changed over time
  • whether the lesion itches
  • whether the person has experienced fever or chills
  • whether anyone the person knows has had similar skin changes
  • whether the person has any allergies
  • what medical conditions the person may have
  • what medications a person may be taking
  • whether the person has had similar or other skin lesions in the past
  • whether the person has had any injury to the area or a recent insect or tick bite
  • The provider may ask about other symptoms, as well. This may include questions about arthritis, weight loss, or the person's sexual history.
