since a few months i have itchy (mainly) lower arms and chins/ankles. When i scratch the skin gets scaly and the chins start to get pale (white) areas, around it it's red/brownish. Yes, these parts are usually in the sun (Australia), yes i do use 15+. I also use medication for cholesterol (lipidil). Would it be a sun/medication allergy (never had this before), or some kind of exzema?
