Customer Question
I have a red...

I have a red rash on the inside of my left leg about the size of a Silverdollar,It is dry and a little crusty?

Doctor's Assistant: When did the redness first appear? Have you used any medication for this?

It has been about two weeks and no I have not put anything on it other than lotion.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a dermatologist about the redness?

I have not seen a dermatologist yet, I should call and get an appointment tomorrow.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I do have a regular dermatologist but I’ve never had him look at anything on my knee in the past.

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.
