Wa alaikumsalam Adin, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Skin complaints that you experience can occur due to various causes, such as fungal skin infections, mite infections, psoriasis conditions and dermatitis. However, dermatitis itself is of many kinds. There are nummularis dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and so on. The symptoms are more or less similar, namely the appearance of round areas that are very itchy, especially in the fold area and the appearance of scaly skin.
So what we want to say is that you should consult a dermatologist to get a direct examination by an expert, especially if you have previously only been treated by a general practitioner. This is important especially in complaints of skin disorders because the appearance of skin disorders that at a glance can give a different clinical meaning when seen by a dermatologist. That way, your doctor can provide a more appropriate treatment for you. Even if you've been treated by a dermatologist all this time, come back for control and evaluation. The medicine that you will receive later is usually a combination of topical and oral medicine.
Meanwhile, do not scratch the itchy area because scratching can cause sores that lead to infection. If it feels itchy, you can reduce it by cold compressing the itchy part. The treatment you have received so far can still be continued. Keep your body clean and the environment, and use soap for babies. So, hopefully answering your question.
