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

It is now as round as a tennis ball in diameter. It itches and will not go away...please help!

Hi, I have had mycosis fungicides for nearly 25 years. I have used nitrogen mustard, total body, accutane and interferon injections but now only use methotrexate which keeps skin lessons away. The past 10 years I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disease, sjogrens, fibromalasia along with many infections mostly in the lungs. I feel horrible most of the time and the very worst upon waking in the morning so much so I dread going to sleep. I need help but don t know where to turn

yes thank you. My husband a 43 y.o. male has been hospitalized a second time noe within the last 3 months. the first time they DX him with guillian barre syndrome. they treated with IVIG for 5 consecutive days and then he remained in hospital a total of 9 days until he could walk and then was discharged. this time, s/s started the same as before. N/T in bilateral feet that migrated quickly up to knees and then tohips and then to elbows and wrists. Then intense burning ache in the joints that followed the same progression. MRI show lesions in the brain, none in spinal cord or brain stem. Lumbar puncture showed only elevated proteins (67). they checked for lymes, encephalitis, meningitis.ets... The first time in Novenmber he last all pheripheral reflexes. This time they sre dull only at this point. I am concerned that they are missing something. My husband states the pain is 9/10, and the only meds that help are Neurontin and toradol. Narcotocs and muscle relaxers do not help at all. We questioned CIDP, MS, transverse myelitis, and they have no answers. They havedone another MRI of brain and brain stem/ neck area. We do not know the results yet, and they are questioning whether or not to do another lumbar puncture... I have requested west nile test and tey just ignore me...I have been an RN for 24 years as well.

I have been noticing tiny bubbles in my urine for the past couple of weeks. During this time, I ran out of my blood pressure meds and went about 8 days before getting the refill. During that time I gained about 8 lbs water weight. My hands and feet were swelling and also in the am my eyes were very puffy. At the end of the day I really had no ankles due to the swelling there. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however it does not explain my blood work which showed the blood antigens were high and also the inflamation. At first they thought I had Lupus, but not enough symptoms to confirm, so I was told that I do not have lupus but I do have fibromyalgia. Since then I have noticed on a couple of occations that I have had ranauds symptoms in my toes. I have also noticed a very faint redness across my nose and in my cheek area under my eyes, but no redness around my eyes (I kinda look like a racoon with white eyes). I am currently taking Lyrica and Cymbalta along with my Lisinopril/Hctz. I guess my question is could this new symptom with the bubbles in the urine be an indicator that I do have Lupus?
