Brief Answer:
skin disorder

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query on HCM

I do understand your concern

With such presentations in my clinic, I would first rule out [Psoriasis]for which I may advise a skin biopsy where it's type will be identified. Treatment will be advised as topical steroids, vitamin-D analogues, anthralin, and calcineurin inhibitors etc as first step. Besides it you need life style change as below -

1)Take daily baths and soak it in water containing Epsom salts
2)use a good moisturizer after bath
3)expose area to bright sunlight every day
4)Try to remove stress and it is very important

Hope that helps
