Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a photo for me on this page?
The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it
Does this itch at all?
It's not fungal like ringworm
It's a form of dermatitis--probably a type of inflammatory eczema
For now I'd suggest over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for two weeks but if that doesn't clear it you'll need prescription tacrolimus cream from your doctor
Please let me know if you need any more information
Usually it just happens without a specific trigger
It doesn't indicate a systemic disease
But it may take a biopsy to determine exactly what type of dermatitis it is
My pleasure and call on me anytime
