Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, what the symptoms given here could be due to chronic eczema or it could be psoriasis in either case it can be tried with steroid and with confirmation of diagnosis it needs to be treated with specific medicine as long as the eczema is concern it can be cured but for the psoriasis is doubtful hope this information helps
