Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It's a circular marking, no itchiness or anything it's just there
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 10 months ago

Any how long has it been there?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
A few weeks, I just assumed it would go after a while if it was a friction burn ?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Is it something serious ? Or just a friction burn ?
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 10 months ago

Nothing serious

Not anything like herpes or any STD

Not really a friction burn--it's a small patch of eczema

For how you can use over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for a week and that should clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
