What is the treatment for a black patch and itching on the skin?

Hello, I found a black circle on my back and a smaller circle. It itches at night and it looks like litchan plantis. I had a real back case once. Nearly a year later I was diagnosed with breast cancer and it lead to lung cancer in the final stage in 2010.

Hi,

It may be nummular eczema. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to apply mild steroid cream and to take antihistamines like Desloratidine 5 mg for few weeks.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
