Skin issues: I'm not surprised to hear that homeopathic have been unsuccessful, and that all sorts of powders, potions, salves, etc, have been unsuccessful. You are treating symptoms, not the cause of your ailment. Stop guessing. See a skin specialist, a Dermatologist, for accurate diagnosis and thus effective treatment plan.

Agree with Dr. M: It is time to consult a dermatologist. Wish you good health!
