Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I understand your concern. I have seen the attached photograph also. As per de tails, there are following possibilities for your symptoms: 1 ) Tinea corporis - it is fungal infection of skin . It is characterised by red colored itchy rash annular in morphology covered with scales. In such cases, antifungals like clotrimazole cream and tablet fluconazole is advised. 2)Eczema- it is characterised by red itchy eruption. In such cases, topical steroids like mometasone is advised. In both cases, antihistaminics like levocetrizine is advised for symptomatic relief. Visit your doctor so that he can do physical examination and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.
