Brief Answer:
Kindly provide certain details and pictures

Detailed Answer:

I have seen the attached pictures.
I would like to know if you have any associated itching also over the affected areas . Is there any discharge or excessive wetting of the area?
From the clinical appearance, it looks like you have developed a candidal infection over the cubital fossa.
What other areas of body are involved?
You can click some close up pictures of other affected areas also along with pictures of face.
I am sure I will be able to help you more once you provide me the above details and the pictures .

Brief Answer:
Take treatment as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Skin darkening on prolonged usage is a known side effect of skinlite cream.
Make sure you do not use this medicine again.
Start application of kojivit cream over the affected areas twice a day.
In addition, apply a medicated sunscreen with spf of atleast 26 regularly over the face and exposed areas of neck everytime before going out in the sun .
Take oral vitamin c supplements in the form of tablet Celin 500 mg once a day.
Take a diet rich in fresh citrus fruits .
You need to follow this treatment regularly for good results.

My dad has been on a low dose of Oycontin (10mg) since last September. I know itching can be a side effect but this wasn t a problem when starting morphine. But over the last few weeks and especially the last few days his skin is driving him mad. He does has psoriasis as we ll but his skin is so itchy he is literally going mad with it. The itchiness is really distressing him. Could he have developed an allergy to it at this late date after using it for nearly a year?

Hi my name is felicia, I have psoriasis, I ve had it since I was about 8 yrs old and I am 41 now this winter has been the worst year that I have ever had as far as new winter patches and lots of different parts of my body I ve never had it before. Also, this year my elbows and hands are particulary bad and my arms hurt, I have had surface pain associated with rawness and itching before but this is intense real pain inside. My elbows hurt so bad it brings me to tears sometimes, its hard to describe sort of throbbing and seems to vibrate down my arms, on both sides. My fingers hurt to but not as intense. Both arms are also going numb from right above my elbows to my tips of fingers to where my fingers will turn white and i have to massage blood back in there. Are these things all related is it because of my psoriasis or is there something else going on? Thank You for your time Sincerely, Felicia Bredl
