Question: White Scaley Spots

 michalbugno2007 - Wed Sep 09, 2009 4:25 pm

I am 15 years old and during a trip to Europe i developed very itchy skin. Eventually it turned red with a white center (similar to picture 3). Originally I thought it was eczema or ringworm so i started using hydrocirtizone cream along with Lamisil (for ringworm). The patches have become less scaley and are now mostly white not the red/white pattern as before. I have this on both arms and legs. I have attached pictures.
