Is this the proper treatment because now there is a deep red ring around it ?

I was treated 2 weeks ago for nummular eczema on my lower leg. The treatment was liquid nitrogen. Is this the proper treatment because now there is a deep red ring around it and an infection that seems to be spreading as there is light red ring that is 4 inches in diameter and growing around this spot, and it is painful to walk. I have tried topical antibiotic (polysporin) with no success. Please help

HI Welcome to

If it is Numular Excezema more conservative management - like tar tar, salicylic acid, steroid creams are good. It is chronic condition. Liquid nitrogen may burn one area but the chances of recurrence are are there.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Well i wouldn't treat a numular eczema with a cryo or liq nitogen,its going to lead to a blister and scaring.The best would be a course of antibiotic with topical steroid and oral anti allergic tablets.Take a second opinion with a dermatologist.
take care,
