Can eczema (i have been scratching) be the cause of a rather big open sore on the front of lower leg? Leg swollen tender and red around the wound.

Use antibiotic cream, cover lightly. After that is resolved, obtain as effective as possible cortisone ointment to keep the itching under control. Eczema can be very difficult to eradicate, but it can be controlled. Don't scratch! ...Read more

I have had tenderness to left armpit and groin for months with soreness down side and leg what could be the cause dr. Says stress?

Also, if one had an unusually strenuous day (such as helping a friend move out of a 3-bedroom house) the tendons and ligaments in an armpit and groin can be sore. If worried, a second opinion can be helpful. ...Read more
