Got it--thanks

What's your question about it?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
is that eczema or psoriasis or skin cancer?

OK

Not cancer or psoriasis and it really doesn't look like eczema--just an area of hyperpigmentation and nothing at all serious

If you'd like you can use topical hydroquinone cream to get rid of it.

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
do you mean hydrocortisone cream?

No--hydroquinone

It comes in nonprescription strength over the counter

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
okay, but it is very dry too and responds well to topical steriods. I used a cream called Pevisone Cream (Econazole nitrate 1%, Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1%) and it helps after 2 weeks application.one more question, what causes this hyperpigmentation ?

It just occurs--no specific cause

sure will do that, but 1 more question,the affected skin looks more dry tho, hydroquinone literally just lightens the dark spots (depigmentation), you still think i should use it for my dry skin condition?

It won't worsen the dryness and you can combine it with the Pevisone cream

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.
