Suffering with a itchy,bloddy and scaly rash in his left leg

My father age 63 years is suffering with a itchy,bloddy and scaly rash in his left leg for the past 3-4 years. We have consulted various ayurvedic and aloppathy doctors in chennai and nobody as given a type of infection/root cause and it has not got cured as well. Its very itchy when the scale is coming on the rash and the moment he scratches blood comes and the rash comes back to its orginal condition. Could you suggest a chief / good skin specialist in manipal hospital bangalore or a very experienced doctor in chennai/ bangalore? Also, can you tell me what his problem could be ?

Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

It seems to be a lichen simplex chronicus with probably secondary infection .This condition is usually seen on one leg( outer side ) and is seen in aged patients .Patients usually complain of itching in evening or night. There is a cycle called as "scratch -itch" cycle which means that once a patient starts to scratch the area then the itching becomes more sever .So we have to break the cycle and the only way is to stop scratching .
You can meet Dr.Kripa shankar at manipal hospital bangalore .
