Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seekI am sorry to hear about this
Have you had a skin biopsy?
No I haven't. They are not really clustered together. They are peppered through out my back, thighs and stomach areas. I can peel (sorry this is gross) the upper layer of skin on this spots as its so dry. The ointment prescribed is Triamcinolone 0.1% . I've used the entire tube but there is no improvement. The prescription allows for 5 more refills. Its seems silly to order more when the first tube didn't work.
Did you see a dermatologist?
Well, kind of. I was my Ogyn appt. when i brought up the spots. She call the dermatologist who came downstairs to the exam room. She took a quick look and said try this and if it doesn't' work, they can give my 'light' treatments. Like heated light. Although she didn't seem too keen on that idea. This condition is very unsightly. Otherwise they don't hurt or itch.
I understand, this may be require a stronger steroid cream that the one you tried, I think you should see a dermatologist and get a skin biopsy
Okay. I'll make an appt. with the dermatologist.
You're quite welcome
