Severe itching on legs between ankle and knee. Follicles turned white. Using antibacterial soap. Solution?

Hello. Normally I have very itchy legs and lately I have noticed that my legs are extremely itchy. Both my legs between my ankle and knee (anterior portion) are very itchy. The hair follicles and the skin around it turned white, they are elevated just a little. I used an anit bacterial soap and a sulfur based cream when it itches, and it has been 2 months since it started. I have done research on this and I have come up with nothing. May you please help me with this. Thank you.

Welcome to HCM forum

I hope you are not diabetic as you have not mentioned your age

Apply calamine lotion as well as cream containing aloe vera and Vit E

Dryness also causes itching for which you can apply mustard oil before taking bath

Take tablet levocetrizine under doctor's guidance and prescription

It is better to show it to a dermatologist

Take care
