Hi. My daughter has had a dry, red, bumpy patch of skin on the back of her thigh since October last year.
It started as a red spot and spread outwards to become about an inch across, slightly oval shape. Our doctor had tried anti fungal cream, which did not work, and currently hydrocortisone which has improved it a lot. However, I have now been told to only use the cream once a day and the improvement seems to have stopped.
She also has 3 smaller patches on her back, one which I know appeared following her scratching ( there was a scratch which healed but now looks like a bumpy raised area, similar to that on her leg).
Our doctor believes it may be a type of eczema which started through on insect bite or small skin injury but would this spread to another area by scratching?
I would appreciate your comments.
