Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

It would be better if you could upload a picture of the skin lesions.

Skin allergy to the new detergent is a possibility.One option is to try to switch to organic brands of liquid detergents and make sure the detergent is completely removed from the clothes by thorough rinsing.

Please do get your blood sugar levels checked ,as uncontrolled blood sugar can also present with skin lesions.

Dry skin can also aggravate the problem.

Make sure you drink plenty of water (at least 8-10 glasses).

In my opinion, it would be best if you could directly visit a dermatologist, who might even suggest a skin biopsy if necessary.

I hope I have answered your question. Please do get back to me if you have further queries.

Have a great day :)

Regards,
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan
