Hi--how long ago did this begin?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Roughly 2years ago started as a small area on stomach
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sorry for the delay Toby--has this been biopsied?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Dr Chip
No it hasn't been biopsied
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Toby--this looks like eczema and not a fungal infection so that's why the creams she's tried don't work. She needs something called tacrolimus cream which is by prescription and she needs an antihistamine like benadryl or Claritin for the itching since scratching will make this work. A dermatologist referral would be best for this, but a family doctor can prescribe these medications
