I have this patch on my arm. It's almost like dry skin but nothing helps it. It's red and raised when white bynps. I can scratch it and it just white and flakes. It hasn't gotten worse or better

Have you visited a dermatologist lately?.she might have answer to your queries about that dry patch of your skin. I think that would be a wise thing to do for you to be worry free alrweady of what is it on your skin.

@jndlponti Our health care is very overwhelming, and takes many months to get in.

Maybe you should mention it to your doc next time you are there.

@ricki_911 then maybe you should visit your local chemist and see what they think and maybe if they offer some ointments.

It sounds like ezcema, my daughter has that. I use coconut oil on it and that helps.

Sounds like you need a doctor for assistance.
