3 years ago while doing alot of manual medicine (direct contact with patients skin, physical therapies, massage etc) I developed 2 small circular red patches on my left forearm. Never though much about it. Over time many, many of these patches started to develope, most are just small dry erosions on the skin, usually not red unless I scratch them or put a cream on them. Legs and forearms are the worse areas. Now they are on my right forearm and getting worse. My friend, A GP had a look and said atopic dermatitis, use some lotion and take some steroids...Again they look like small patches of dry white erosions, irregualr shaped, had to see unless you scratch the area first, the creams really bring them out and they do ich from time to time...
Well, what do you think?

  • I have similar symptoms and they have diagnosed "Droplet Psoriasis". No treatment topically but Erythromycin by mouth has helped.
