Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are describing can be insect bite/contact dermatitis/xerotic eczema/purpura etc.

Also I would like to know-
Since when you have this?
Has it grown slowly?What is the size like?
Is it painful?
Is there itching on foot lesion?


Answer the questions to help you better.

Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Photos can help a lot to predict the condition.

Wherever you have a visible lesion on the skin you can take a close up photograph of it and UPLOAD it in UPLOAD YOUR reports section.


Meanwhile you can apply hydrocortisone cream over the affected area.
You can also take tab Zyrtec twice daily it will help in reducing itching.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up.

Hi Again,

For itching you can apply Hydrocortisone cream twice daily and can take antihistaminic like Tab zyrtec twice daily.

This will help a lot.

My son is 6yrs old and yesterday at school he complained that his head was hurting and need to lay down then the teacher said he projectile vomit at least 5-6 ft. i took him home and gave him some pepto and pedialyte he took a nap then about an hr later he vomit. i gave him more pepto and chicken noodle soup and he was fine. before i took him to school this morning he had a bile movement and it was soft like mashed potatoes and black. i gave him pepto and took him to school, he ate lunch didn t play at PE and wouldnt talk much then around 1pm he told the teacher he was very sleepy and his head hurt then about an 1hr later he woke up and was back to normal. after school when he got home he told his sister that he was sleepy he slept bout 30 mins and said he was hungry. he ate half a pizza waited awhile and vomit again. no other symptoms other than his usual eczema and allergy bumps or hives, no fever. is this a virus or is this something i can treat from home or do i need help?

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

I am a female and am 12 years old and i have eczema(dermatitis). I have had these small red bumps and a rash on my left inner thigh. It really hurts when I walk. I have looked up a lot of info and some say it can be due to eczema. I usually always have rashes. I have had this rash with small red bumps for one week going on two weeks. I am super scared and nobody knows. I have put a warm washcloth with warm water on it for about a half hour and it just goes down a bit then starts again. I am not in any sexual incourse and I am super scared. Please help me. I dont know if it can get worse. Please.

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!
