Brief Answer:
This doesn't look like recurrence

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

First of all, it is very unlikely for Hodgkin's to recur after so many years. And then, the symptoms are also not suggestive.

So most likely, these ure unrelated. You should consult a dermatologist and proceed accordingly. I am sure, there will be some way to control it.

Hope this helps.
Regards
