I am a 49 yr old male I have a spot on my knee and my foot

Customer Question

I am a 49 yr old white male I have a spot on my knee and my foot
and was wondering if there indicative of any problems. They don't itch there round
and look like the very mild psoriasis I get on elbows rarely.
Been there about 3-4 weeks I've tried MSM lotion lotrisone cream and bactraban no change.

Thank you very much for the photo provided.

The spot does look like a patch of psoriasis.

This is not indicative of any other infection or anything sinister. Do not worry .

I would suggest you to use the following:

Mix and apply Neosporin ointment and Aveeno 1% hydrocortisone on the area twice a day for atleast 1 week.

Do take over the counter Vitamin E daily to help heal the skin.

Use Cetaphil Cleansing lotion to cleanse the area.

Use Aveeno Eczema Therapy Cream once at in the evening on the area daily for around 1 month.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Please note that you will get the above creams over the counter.
