Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
I just uploaded 3 picture...2 neck and one face. Currently not as bad as it sometimes gets....can you confirm that you received the pictures? Thanks
Intermittently...seems to be more frequent over the last 6 months...approx 1-2 times/month; also itchy. Lasts different time periods...anywhere from a few day to a week. It has been happening for about 18 months...sorry cannot be more specific....probably waited longer than i should have...more annoying than anything else. Tried benedryl (po and topical) and OTC topical lotions for both ezcema and psoriasis with no relief.
Do not think it is sunlight as no worse in summer or on vacations in south. have not changed cosmetics (actually use hypoallergenic makeup and detergent)...do not wear scarfs. I also tried to keep area open when it starts "acting up" as much as possible..cannot think of anything else that I haven't told you. Also, would eczema just show up on your neck as i have googled both eczema and psoriasis prior to e-mailing you and they appear more scaly and the pictures didn't resemble mine...also they didn't seem to be as localized as mine are (to chest, neck and face). Have you seen something different in your practice?
That is what I was thinking...I will schedule an appointment with my PCP and a dermatologist to try and see what this is so it can be treated....thanks for the advice (wish it was more definite but know it is difficult via e-mail).
Have a good day.
