Hi there Rumesh.

This problem of 8 mths needs to be looked at by a dermatologist on the ground.

From your description & history, it appears to be some sort of contact dermatitis or frictional induced problem due to the excessive use of your laptop.

It may require a local skin or excision biopsy which can only be decided upon visualising the area.

It can easily be done in the Outpatient under local anaesthesia & charges would vary with the facility.

Do hope this advice has pointed you in the direction of an informed deciscion. Cheers & good luck. Here's to a clear skin!!
