Hi dear,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

I have gone through your query and photos.

The best possibility that strikes to my mind without physically examining in your case is Lichen planus. This should not mislead you without seeking further information. It can be a number of other things as well.

I would request you to answer the following parameters:

Are these spots itchy?Is there a burning sensation?

Is it the first time you are having this type of lesions?

Do you have any known food allergy/ contact allergy/ drug allergies?

Do you have a fever / any other complaints?

Have tried any new soap/ cosmetic/shampoo recently?

Do you have similar lesions at any other site? Any problems in mouth?

After you answer the following questions I would in better position to help you.

Awaiting your reply.

Hi dear,

Thanks for the reply.

The possibilities in your case may be lichen planus or porokeratosis.

You can apply a mild steroid like hydrocortisone or beclomethasone for 7-10 days.

The lesion should regress in 10 -14 days.

If it does not resolve by then, you should visit your dermatologist who will do a proper physical examination and confirm diagnosis and treat accordingly.

Till then don’t apply soap or any cleanser to the area.
Use only warm water to clean the area.
Avoid friction /sexual activity till the time.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
Regards
Dr Sudarshan
