Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   how can i help you?
User :   Hi! I have several small, almost circular patches of hypopigmentation that are almost scaly feeling on my lower legs and arms. They are very itchy and I feel like could have resulted from dry skin. I have been trying so hard not to itch them and further exacerbate the situation, but will the "scars" go away? Does this sound like something else besides dry skin? Thank you!
Doctor :   let me read
User :   I have only had them for a couple months.
Doctor :   your symptoms indicate that you are suffering from a form of dermatitis
