Raised itchy spots on the body, antifungal cream, neosporin

Hi, I have small raised, itchy spots in different spots on my body. there are three in one area on my chest and two on my arm . I get them on my leg also sometimes. They are about the size of the eraser on a pencil or a little larger. I have tried anti fungel cream and neosporin and both seem to help a bit but not to make them go away.

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

Please get a KOH mount done,

This can confirm the fungal etiology.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

You must continue this cream for at least a month to get permanent cure

It seems that you may be having prurigo simplex. There may be papular lesions with mild to severe itching. There may be some cause. Irritants,allergens, soap,infections,insects,clothes,pollutants,house dust,housedust mites,internal disease..etc can cause this type of disease. You consult dermatologist. He may investigate and may find out some cause. He may prescribe antihistaminics and steroids in tappering dose.. He may advise some application of steroid cream. You may be improved.

I hope you got my answer.
