Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for writing in .
The condition could be mycosis fungoides, Pityriasis lichenoides chronica ,contact dermatitis, drug eruption ,seborrheic dermartitis etc.
Also I would like to know-
Do you have lesions over groin , webspaces ,lower abdomen?
Have you tried any new drugs/cosmetics/clothes etc?
Any other symptoms like fever/ joint pain /oral ulcers?
Itching is more during day or night?
Do face lesions increase after hot spicy food intake or coffee tea intake?
Is it responding to steroid cream?
Are you on any immunosuppresive drugs for skin condition.
Can you upload photos of the affected skin?
Photographs can help a lot in predicting the condition.
Upload the photographs and answer the question and we can continue the discussion here.
Anticipating your response.
