Good morning

Doctor's Assistant: Hello. How can I help?

I have developed this rash on both of my legs (lower) a couple of months ago. I thought it was some kind of ringworm and now it has spread like all in one and I think it might be due to different kinds of OTC medication ? I don't know what to do ?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take blood pressure med only

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

No that is all

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Does this itch at all?

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

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
