Patch of raised dry skin in the pubic area. Chances of eczema?

I am a male, age 20, height 6ft 2inch, weight 11 stone . I have a patch of dry skin in the pubic region that has been there for a few weeks now, I thought it might go away but it hasn t. the skin is slightly duller in colour to the rest of my skin, it isn t particularly itchy, doesn t hurt. I only noticed when I felt it, it feels rougher and is slightly raised above the rest of my skin. It looks like some kind of exma but i have never had exma anywhere else before. What could this be? thanks

Hello dear.
Thanks for the query.
Dry patch in pubic area is unlikely to be eczema.
The patches of eczema usually ooze.
It might be a fungal infection known as tinea cruris.
You can try an anti fungal cream.
Remember to apply the cream for atleast 1 month even if the lesion disappears.
This will help you.
If you dont get relief in a week, you must meet a dermatologist.
Thank you
