Suffering from Eczema and why this reddish brown spot is not disappearing ?

There is big reddish brown spot (about 11 cm in length and 6-7 cm in width) on my right leg (lower to knee , on calf). At first I thought it is due to dry skin . After two years, I felt that the problem is different. So, I decided to consult a dermatologist . She told me that I am suffering from Eczema and she recommended me some medicines (for fifteen days). Medicines are:- 1. Triwash bodywash 2. Lusol Cream 3. Tab. Lestar- M 4. Tab. Neasta After fifteen days, I felt less irritation over that area but the spot was still as it was before. So, I again consulted that doctor and she told me recommended list of medicines for one month. These are:- 1. Caremoist Cream 2. Lusol- S Cream 3. Tab. Neasta Now it has been 21 days, but the spot is still the same. Please suggest me something. Also, tell me why this spot is not disappearing?

Good morning. I am not sure if I have ringworm or eczema. I went to a doctor last night and he told me that it wasn t eczema. But the other day there was a clear fluid coming out from the patches behind my knee, and it is very itchy. I used anti bacterial cream and the itch is gone, it s called Terramycin. The doctor recommended me to use canesten last night, the itch is gone too but he also said that I have measles, because I have small red spots on my neck. I m not sure if he is right because our conversation went to fast, so I m worried if this is eczema, but he told me not. Can you please help me? Right now my patches are so red ( on my arms) and I have small blisters around and reddish too. Ps. I don t have enough dollars to pay to get an answer, can you please email me YYYY@YYYY thank you very much

Prior to making a bowel movement, I have a headache and often nausea is accompanied with these symptoms. This headache will not go away until I have gone to the bathroom/had a bowel movement. My headache immediately goes away once the bowel movement is complete. Often my headache/nausea will go away before I even get off the toilet. This used to occur periodically, but now it is happening EVERY time I have to make a bowel movement. No one seems to have ever heard of this, but when I google these symptoms, it appears other people are suffering from the same symptoms as myself. HELP!!!
