Have itching from knee to ankle on both legs. On medication. On stopping the medication it returns. What to do?

Sir, I am suffering from itch from Knee to Ankle of my both feet since last four year. I had consulted a skin specialist. She prescribed me to use propysallic NF lotion with some anti allergy pils and advised me to use coconut oil regularly. But it works only as long as I use the propysallic NF Lotion. When I stop using this for a week and so, the itching starts again. Please advice.

Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be chronic folliculitis of legs,fungal infection,xerotic eczema etc.Use liberal moisturizer like venusia lotion 2-3 times.Coconut oil can also be used.Propysalic is a strong steroid and should not be used for longer periods.
A skin biopsy may be required for diagnosis.
Please visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Hope this helps.
