Question Asked:

"Good day Doctor, I have had this skin reaction which formed a patch on my knee and lower ankle. It has been almost 2 years now with the application of several anti-fungal/anti-bacterial creams yet it remains scaly and dry but has not healed up. Please, what can I use again?"

    Goodevening. If it's a scar then antifungal creams cannot help to remove the scar. You need to give it time for the scar to disappear. You may also send the picture to be able to help make a diagnosis. Take care

    Is it itching you? You should use antiseptic soap and also get benzyl benzoate cream to apply on the patches. Also, you can apply moisturising cream to avoid it looking dry and patchy
