Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Are you able to upload a picture here?Also do you have any other medical condition?
Are you able to post another picture?
Do you have easy bruising tendency?
Thanks for another picture. This is likely due to either atopic condition or automminune condition.
Atopic dermatitis refers to unknown reaction from skin to environmental changes.
Autoimmune condition refers to body's immune system attacking the skin layer for unknown reason.
Other possibilities can be thyroid gland disorder, food allergies like gluten sensitivity.
Treatment is usually effective with topical steroid ointment requiring prescription.
Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% is one such ointment to be applied sparingly twice daily over the affected areas.
Yes that is also a contributing factor to your current skin condition.
Stress can cause abnormal immune response against your skin layers.
Yes this is prescription only. You will need to discuss with your doctor.
Over the counter, Hydrocortisone is available but this is a weaker form of steroid --may work to some extent.
