Itchy Shins And Red Patches
Can eczema turn into psoriasis? I have a patch of itchy skin on my shin diagnosed as eczema. My GP prescribed Verdeso 0.05% rash came back red & bumpy
No: In fact atopic eczema and psoriasis are nearly 180 degree opposite to each other in term of the immune reactions. Cortisone is a non-specific anti-inflammatory agent which however may help both conditions although better and safer alternatives may be required. The itchy rash on your chin is likely from a contact allergy with hair preparations being the most likely suspects. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: There are several possible causes for the skin findings you have described ranging from Eczema, Fungal Infection, a manifestation of a related medical disorder, and more. Moreover, diagnosis will be challenging without visual inspection; your medical history (recent/past) is needed to provide important diagnostic clues as well. Suggest you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Red itchy spots on shins, elbows, behind knees & neck. No one else in home is afflicted. What is it and how do I get rid of it?
See your physician to get checked for accurate diagnosis. My guess is tinea corporis which is a fungal infection of the skin. It causes an itchy, red, often ring-shaped rash in these warm, moist areas of your body.
It is common in people who sweat a lot, as do athletes. It usually respond to topical anti fungals creams. ...Read more
