It could be?? This comes and goes.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

Yes, I believe it is probably something else like eczema

I would go with a mix of hydrocortisone and clotrimazole mixed together

that combination will take care of it

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
