Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good morning, I am Dr Elliot. Please could you provide a photo? thanks
Thank you, ***** ***** you tried on your face so far?
Thanks, ***** ***** first glance it appears more eczematous. However there is some scale present. A topical steroid may be the first option along with a Vitamin D analogue to help reduce any scale. Both of these can be prescribed by your GP
I would speak to them next week and ask for something other than the Protopic cream.
I would however say that with the further treatments, if after a few weeks you are not convinced they are helping, ask for a dermatology referral as at some point UV therapy may be an option for you
It is available on the NHS
UV therapy is often given alongside a tablet, the tablet can cause nausea, but this is generally a last resort, but this is why I would ask for a dermatology referral from your GP as well
Have a chat with your GP, plenty of options other than what you are already using, best of luck with this.
