Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me, are the itchy skin areas red, dry, bumpy, peeling or bleeding at all? Are you able to attach any pictures of the areas in question to this chat thread?

no bleeding just flaky and itching especially near the upper inner thigh
Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Thank you for that information. Judging by your description and the locations, more than likely you have mild eczema. Eczema is a common condition that leads to dry, flaking skin sometimes with mild redness/irritation, that can be itchy. It's best treated with frequent application of a good moisturizing lotion or emollient like Vaseline or Aquaphor. If the itchiness is particularly bothersome, you can apply hydrocortisone 1% ointment 3 times per day for 1-2 weeks, which reduces the inflammation and stops the itchiness.

Can I answer any other questions for you today?

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.

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.
