BCC is more likely to occur if you are Caucasian. Your age also places you in the low risk group.
The photos are not enough to make a clear diagnosis. We also need to take into account:
Above all, it is important to have whatever lesions you are worried about inspected by a medical professional. Since many rashes look similar one another, a biopsy (tissue sample taken for further analysis) may be required to confirm or rule out the diagnosis.
The internet has a lot of information but when taken out of context can lead to unnecessary alarm or even lead one into a false sense of security.
This is a really good question. Many a times, different kinds of skin problems can present in very similar ways.
The best and safest way to get the diagnosis right is to see a doctor as soon as possible to get it assessed physically. You can see a general practitioner, a dermatologist or an aesthetic doctor depending on your preference. A skin biopsy may be required.
I do not recommend getting advice or answer over the internet over this matter because basal cell carcinoma can be a serious condition if not discovered early.
