My girlfriend has had this rash on her lower left leg for about 6 months. It is red, itchy, and quite large. about 3 inches
in diameter. It is scaly, rough, and thick feeling. It is not warm to the touch, she has no fever. She has tried several
creams. She puts hydrogen peroxide on it daily. She usually puts hydrosortizone on it for the itching, and a anti-fungal
cream such as ringworm remover on it daily. Ever since the fungal cream started it has been oozing this clear oily fluid
CONSTANTLY. She told the doctor about the rash one time over the phone. He didn't see her about it and prescribed a rx cream.
It does nothing. She has had the best luck with the hydrocortizone. It will get really healthy looking and soft and then
bang, it looks like crap again for no reason. For some reason she shaved it deeply last night hoping to penetrate it with the
cream better, but now it looks worse than ever. I am fed up with telling her to leave it alone and see a doctor, so i'm
asking for your input. Does she need to go to the dermatologist, or should we tough it out with an over-the-counter
treatment? I think it is fungal, but i'm no doctor.
