I had the first dry skin patch last November 2007 and I dismissed it as something due to the cold weather. However, it%26#039;s been more than a year and it%26#039;s still there. Worse, the patches seem to be spreading but in different areas. It started in my lower left leg, now I have other patches in my upper thighs and my right leg.
I%26#039;ll be having a KOH test tomorrow but I%26#039;d like to get more ideas on what type of skin disease it can be. Hope you can help.|||Sounds like eczema. Thats what I have.
You should try this New Eucerin product. I can not tell you how much it has helped the itching and clawing. I am not waking myself up scratching my legs anymore. What a relief. Check this site out for a review on this Eucerin body wash.
