Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Please upload a picture if possible.
Do you have any other medical condition?
Thanks for the pictures.
I am assuming the raw wounds have been created from excessive itching.
This is originally due to the contact dermatitis or eczema-- an immune reaction against your skin.
But now, the raw wounds seem to be infected as well from excessive scratching.
You will need oral steroid course with prednisone 40 mg daily for 1 week and then taper by 5 mg every 3 days to address the eczema.
You will also need a strong antibiotic like doxycycilne 100 mg twice daily for 10 days to control the superinfection.
Both medications can be prescribed by your GP.
Lastly, i will suggest a consultation with a dermatologist if possible for confirmation with skin swab test.
