I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

Hi and sorry for the delay but your question just became available to me. This sounds like you may have a case of inflammatory eczema and I'd suggest a combination of cortisone cream topically and benedryl orallly to help with your symptoms Let me know if you need more information please

Hi ive seen a dermatologist who said its not exzema but could be basal cell carcinoma

I understand and that may also be the case here but there's obviously some inflammtion too. I'd try what I suggested and you can also ask for a prescription for Lyrica which will help with the burning discomfort
