I have a thick dead skin patch on upperside of my foot for last two decades. I havent been to eradicate this spot inspite of applying various derma creams. Finally I tried peeling off the dead sking and scubbed hard along with application of ring guard ointment. Unfortunately this act has brought red spots around that patch over reddish skin patch of about 4 inch square and white spots on lower legs. Need help

Thanks for the query.
I must say, you have been too harsh to your skin.

Well skin has a good regenerating capacity and you will be fine, dont worry regarding that.

I would like too see how the lesion actually look.
