About a year ago, a 2 square inch area of my thigh started itching insanely.
The skin looked completely normal.

When a couple of red spots eventually appeared, I went to a dermatologist.
He gave me a psoriasis cream, which did nothing.
He did a biopsy of one of the red spots, testing for pre cancer, and it was benign.
Weirdly, after he removed the red spot, the itching stopped for about a week, then returned.

The only thing that has suppressed the itch is a medicinal powder called Zeasorb_AF. Because of this, my own assumption is that it is bacterial.

The area has grown to around 7 square inches. There are a couple of small red spots around, but the skin looks normal. No rash.

I've tried applying the Zeasorb_AF daily for 6 weeks now, the itch has subsided incrementally. It returns as soon as the stuff wears off though.

Any suggesstions appreciated.
