Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a picture of those for me on this page?

best i can offer wity camera available. thanks .

Got them--hold on please

Nothing serious there

Those a patches of atopic dermatitis--sort of a dry skin problem with no specific trigger for it

You can use a combination of over the counter hydrocortisone cream and a vitamin E cream both applied together twice a day for a week to clear that up

Please let me know if you need any more information
