Good afternoon doctor. On my knees and ankles the surface of the skin is thickened, like scaly and itchy. Already given the ointment but still recur again. I got info on the possibility of neodermatitis, some say psioriasis. Is it true that if the disease can be completely cured? Thanks in advance

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com


Thickened and scaly skin can be caused by several factors. To get the right treatment it is necessary to know the cause of the complaint it is necessary to do a history and direct physical examination. Some possibilities include:

Neurodermatitis
Psoriasis
Dry skin
Lichen planus
Contact dermatitis

In the meantime what you can do include:

Not scratching the skin, because scratching can slow the healing process of skin lesions
Use a moisturizing cream that suits your skin type
Increase fluid intake
Increase fiber intake such as fruits and vegetables
Sleep and rest enough
Avoid excessive friction on the skin

If your complaint does not improve or you are worried, you should check with your skin specialist for further examination and treatment related to your condition.


So much information from me, hopefully it helps
