Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
What symptoms do you have? Are you able to post a picture here?
Do you have any pain or itching? Thanks for the picture. The red bumps are likely due to the increased nerve and blood proliferation under the skin layer. They are also known as prurigo nodularis.
Their treatment is difficult. However, you should consider a potent corticosteroid ointment like Clobetasol propionate 0.05% ointment to be applied daily at night time and to be covered by a bandage around the leg. You will need to continue treatment for 4 weeks.
This is often helpful. There are other treatment options as well. You should consult with a dermatologist as well given resistant long standing nature of the problem. Best wishes
