1 Answer:

Hi Syn,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The appearance of a rough, itchy, and sore mass in the lower leg (near the shin) can be caused by:

Xerosis (dry skin) Keratoderma (thickening and crusting of the skin, usually affecting the hands and feet) Lichen planus Callus (calluses) Seborrhoeic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation that causes the skin to thicken and peel like dandruff) Neurodermatitis (chronic skin inflammation triggered by stress) Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation caused by contact with allergens or irritants) Infections, such as cellulitis, impetigo, erysipelas, etc. You should visit a dermatologist directly to have your complaint checked. That way, doctors can carry out further evaluations, or also carry out supporting tests, such as laboratories, skin biopsies, and so on so that the best treatment can be done.

Avoid temporarily squeezing or peeling lumps on the feet. Also avoid excessive scratching of itchy skin. Diligently wash your feet and use clean pants and footwear. If the skin on your feet is very dry, use a moisturizer (moisturizer) and drink 8-12 glasses of water per day.

Hope it helps ya..
