I've 2 quarter size inflamed dry patches of skin that came up 2 weeks ago. Its itchy! been given fucicort but it isnt working. Do you have any ideas?

You might try putting some Hydrocortisone cream on your skin in the area before attaching the insertion needle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
