Hello I am Vivienne
Hi I'm Dr. Phil. Can I ask your first name?
Oh I vivienne
Nice to meet you
Thank you ...do you have a diagnosis
Well I need to ask a few questions
Where is it located primarily.
It started on my neck and has progressed to my hands and body... I was in Mexico for a month and it started there
Have the steroid shots or the fungal creams helped?
The steroid shots helped for a couple of weeks but I have now had two bouts plus the steroid packs and it just keeps coming back
Yes, this is not a fungal infection
This is some type of eczema
Is it itchy?
It started as a red itchy rash ... The creams have reduced the redness but now my skin is really dry and uncomfortable
I suspect that this is some type of dermatitis like atopic dermatitis
I recommend you use a topical steroid cream like desonide from your doctor
Along with oral anti histamines
like zyrtec and benadryl
Thank you very much
you're welcome Vivienne. :)
