Does this itch at all?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
before yes, not anymore.

OK

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

what causes dermatitis? I never had any skin issues before

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
