Thank you for your question, Pat. What you are describing does
indeed sound like a contact dermatitis. My advice would be to figure out what
is causing this. Is it possibly a soap that your skin gets into contact with?
Or a particular cream or lotion that you use? With any contact dermatitis, you
need to first get rid of the thing that is causing the issue, and then treat
the reaction on the skin. If you are simply medicating the problem and not
removing the trigger, the problem will just keep on and on reoccurring. If it
is NOT a contact dermatitis, then I’m afraid we need to take a closer look and
examine the reaction and get some more info from you, which is a bit difficult
in a forum like this. Are you not perhaps able to come and see me or one of our
Skin Renewal Doctors so that we can examine the area and help you get a better
idea of what’s happening on your skin? You can find the nearest Branch to you
