Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I'm Dr ChipThanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information
Could you please post a photo of that for me on this page?
Got it--hold on please
Is that completely flat?
Well it's not cancer if that was your concern here
That's a kind of tinea capitis--a fungal scalp infection
No specific trigger for it
You can try over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks to clear it
If that doesn't work, you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream from your doctor
Please let me know if you need any more information
