I've had rough itchy skin round my ankles for a week or two

Customer Question

I've had rough itchy skin round my ankles for a week or two and very recently a rash has appeared on both lower legs. Can you suggest a treatment?
JA: When did the itchiness first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: The itchiness first gradually appeared 6 or 8 weeks ago, I'm applying Hydromol moisturiser 3 times a day ,I'm just finishing an antibiotic Flucloxacillin which doesn't appear to have had any effect.
JA: Got it. Have you seen a dermatologist about the itchiness?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: I don't think so.

For itching you can have Cetirizine 10mg  daily if you are adult. Steroid cream could also be helpful but you need prescription from your doctor
