Customer Question

Hi! I have a patch of dry and darkish on the side of my ankle. I thought it might be psoriasis because it was red and then became white. I put Eucerin on it yesterday. But today, after looking at it again it looks darkish. After looking online, I saw that it might be connected to a vein problem.
This concerns me. I am not diabetic but insulin resistant. My doctor is not in until Tuesday. Thanks.

I have attached my photos via paperclip on Photobucket. However, I did this on my phone so there is not a direct link back to you. Where should I send it? Thanks.
