I've had a red patch of skin on my leg for about 1.5 months. It got a bit larger and turning brown. A little scaly in middle. What could this be?
Dermatologist helps: A primary care doctor can check to see what the patch might be. If needed, a dermatologist can help also. If there is something causing the spot (such as sports equipment), the cause can be removed. Sometimes, dry sensitive eczema patches look like reddish, slightly flaky areas. Also, tinea "ringworm" is a fungal skin infection that can look this way (the doctor can decide) and need an antifungal. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist when the rash is present, is needed. Sometimes a yeast/fungus can cause such symptoms. Other times, such rashs occur from reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, or allergens. If one cannot go to the doctor, then taking a series of photos to show the doctor later is helpful. ...Read more

Eczema: Sounds like a classic case of atopic dermatitis or eczema. See an Allergist or Dermatologist to confirm and receive appropriate treatment. Poorly controlled eczema can cause elevated serum IgE levels. If you have other atopic conditions like allergic rhinitis this can also contribute. Topical steroid creams are helpful for patches, antihistamines for itching. ...Read more

Second degree burn on my face. Scab is gone now but it is red and the skin is scaly and uneven. Its been a week since the burn. Will this heal more
Yes, treat scar: Wounds need to be healed prior to using scar care creams like mederma. Superficial to mid-dermal burn wounds will usually heal within 2-3 weeks if the wound does not get infected. Infection can make the injury deeper. These wounds will heal with little or minimal scarring if the scar is protected form picking up pigment by exposure to uva/uvb. Deeper burns require specialist care including surgery. ...Read more
