Excuse me, I want to ask. I am 21 years old (pr). You see, the skin on my legs starts from the thighs to the calves like brownish and dry spots. When it is winter / cold it is itchy and when it is “scratched” it has a dry white color gt. What causes and solutions? Thank you🙏
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of brown spots, dry, often itchy and whitish when exposed to cold temperatures in the thigh area to the calf may be caused by:
Tinea pedis (dermatophyte fungal infection of the feet) Allergic or irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritating or allergenic substances) Seborrheic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation that makes the skin peel excessively, crusty, and dry like dandruff) Tinea versicolor (allergic) phlegm, fungal infections) Other factors, for example psoriasis, pytiriasis alba, leprosy, impetigo, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, xerosis, atopic dermatitis, etc. These patches may or may not be dangerous. Of course, this condition cannot be ascertained directly without conducting a comprehensive physical examination. Therefore, so that your condition can be dealt with clearly, you should go to see your doctor directly or a dermatologist right ..
At home, you can improve your personal hygiene first, especially the area of your feet, that is by diligently bathing, diligently washing feet, always wear clean clothes, and not carelessly exchanging personal items (including clothes, toiletries) with others. Not only that, you also should not scratch or peel off the spots that appear. Nor does it allow your skin to come into contact with substances that might trigger allergies or irritations so the inflammation subsides.
Hope this helps ...
