    Default Skin on shins, hand & feet

    I have been suffering for a few years now.
    But recently this has gotten much worse.

    My shins got a small patch of what I thought was dry skin about 4 years ago, this just grew and grew.
    I tried steriod creams that my doctor prescribed, which made them itch like crazy, but if i stopped itching (which was v difficult) and put it on twice a day after a couple of months it kind of stopped.

    But about a couple of weeks later it was as before.

    I have now been using a non steriod urea 10% cream called Eucerin, I have also trimmed the hair on my legs to help the cream.

    I have found that the "eczema" has discoloured my skin,

    Also the skin on my right hand only is now peeling & on my feet its doesnt itch but looks terrible, the pics show it on a good day, i again apply the Eucerin, and use a liquid parrafin handwash but if i dont use that to wash hands within minutes it looks like before with peeling skin.

    I cant figure out of I have psoriasis eczema or fungal infection

    If i dont use the Eucerin for a day or two the skin becomes almost white in appearance (due to the scratching) scabs from where excessive scratching has caused blood, and has little white pimples, which look like traditional ezcema type skin.

    The pics are taken after just putting Eucerin on.

    I also have a fungal infection on my right big toe, and one other toe on right foot. It looks disgusting

    I have always been very hygenic, in showering etc, I dont kno0w why this is happening I am off on beach holiday and am so dreading it

    Can anyone help me figure out what to do.

    Thanks in advance.

    hey asp75

    It seems that it is serious..I think you need to consult a doctor so that that you will know what proper medication you need to undergo..

    Always avoid using overly hot water
    Apply moisturizers immediately after every showering or washing
    Keep you skin clean to prevent minimize infection
