Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Please post a pic of the concerned area to provide your with precise diagnosis and treatment plan.
This is lichen simplex chronicus from chronic eczema.
You need to use topical steroid ointment --prescription Clobetasol propionate ointment 0.05% twice daily for 3-4 weeks will be better.
But needs prescription from your doctor.
Over the counter Hydrocortisone 1% ointment can be tried meanwhile 3 times daily for 10 days.
Please use Petrolatum jelly twice daily to prevent dryness.
Lichen simplex chronicus (LSC) is a localized, well-circumscribed area of thickened skin (lichenification) resulting from repeated rubbing, itching, and scratching of the skin. It can occur on normal skin of individuals with atopic, seborrheic, contact dermatitis, or psoriasis.
But if you treat the way I suggested above with prescription cream you will see complete improvement.
