Brief Answer:
Seems like dry skin but can be a fungal infection too.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Thank you for your query.

I read your question and I saw your photos.

It looks like dry skin.

But it can also be a fungal infection, especially if it is itchy.

I would recommend to use a moisturizing cream, without color and smell, for some days and avoid hot showers.

If not better, then try using over the counter Ketoconazole or Econazole.

If worse or not better, I would recommend seeing a local doctor.

Hope this is helpful.

Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards.

Dr, Papaqako,

Thanks for the information. It's not itchy. What kind of moisturizing cream do you recommend? Would XXXXXXX warm shower be ok? Is Cetaphil moisturizing cream ok?

XXXXXXX

Also, Aveeno cream?

Brief Answer:
Every white cream without a perfume smell is ok.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Welcome back...

Yes, XXXXXXX warm shower is ok of course, just hot is not ok.

Cetaphil cream is a cleaner, so it is not good to use. Aveno cream is very good. Every cream that is white and without a perfume smell is ok. Vaseline is very good too.

Hope I have answered your query.
