It sounds as though you may be suffering from eczema. There's no need to panic though because it not a serious health disorder, however it is a painful and irritating skin condition. The symptoms you described are very similar to those associated with eczema which is dry and itchy skin, with the appearance of a reddish brown colour. You may also be experiencing a lot of itchiness during the night which could cause your skin to crack and eventually develop blisters. You should keep in mind that it could get infected which will result in the skin thickening and feeling raw to touch.
The causes for eczema can include a magnesium deficiency, which can passively induce the symptoms of eczema. Magnesium is vital in the human body to help biochemical reactions take place, and if a person is not receiving enough magnesium intake then eczema symptoms may appear. In addition, experiencing sweating or allergic reactions can also cause the skin disorder. In addition, you may contract this skin disorder by being exposed to certain drugs or bacteria as well as particular chemicals.
You can purchase a range of dermatological creams to treat eczema and you could always ask a pharmacist, nurse or doctor what they would recommend. However, you can also create your own mixture to help combat the skin condition. You will need to mix together honey and cinnamon powder which will create a type of paste which you should apply to the affected areas. In order to stop it from dripping you could place tissue over the top and leave the mixture there for around 15 to 30 minutes. Wash off with water and repeat the process every other day for seven days. This should remove the pain and irritation and hopefully prevent the skin disorder from returning.
It seems to me that it could be an outbreak of HERPES. Please tell your doctor to have you check for herpes simplex, I, II, Zoster. If you have it do not be alarmed, just consume a couple of L-LYSINE 1000mg every day and everything will clear in a few days.
You really need to see a Dermatologist. There are many skin conditions. It could be an outbreak of psoriasis, but you need a specialist for a correct diagnosis.
You know something, I have developed the same exact symptoms and I thought maybe eczema as well, but I'm too afraid to find out. This is ridiculous...I am so tired of always having to wonder what's wrong with me. If you find out before I do, let me know.
What a waste of booze!
But yeah, I have the same thing, I was told by someone that it is psoriasis
I haven't been to a doc either or even tried to treat it, I've had it for years and it was once on my arm but that just disappeared over the past 2 years
I have had a similar condition to what you are describing for 20+ years. It started as a darker, slightly flaky patch on my chest. It has now spread to the warm areas of my body. I have tried every cream, dandruff shampoo, etc to no avail. On the areas of my body where my pigmentation is darker due to being in the sun, it's actually light to white. If anyone knows what this is, please let me know.
I have the same sort of symptoms but mine are just on both my arms.... I have tried everything, and I've noticed that rubbing alcohol on it has been helping. You should try it maybe it'll help you.
I had a dry itchy area just below my knee that was there for almost three years and then suddenly went away. I believe it was psoriasis and believe me I put everything you can imagine on it. The only thing that relieved it was to shave it, to keep down the dry skin, because it would relieve the itching a lot and keep it from cracking. Also I applied vaseline afterwards, but if your problem is a fungus than this will only worsen your condition, so to be on the safe side you might want to put on an anti-fungal cream before the vaseline. Try to leave it alone, also, don't talk about it, don't look at it, try forget it exists (except when you treat it), because if you don't you will scratch it more.
