Why has the skin colour on the left side of my neck changed?
Q: The skin colour on the left side of my neck has changed. It looks like a circle (about 1.5 inch in diameter) and the skin in that area is slightly hard. Occasional, I have itching too. When I apply Quadriderm ointment, the next day I can see some white marks and feel better. Again after 2-3 days the circle is visible again and looks very odd. Do I need to consult a doctor? Shall I apply Quadriderm regularly? Please help.
A:It seems like you have a ringworm lesion, which you are treating in spurts and not giving it a full course. First confirm the diagnosis by a test called KOH Examination of scraping from the site to confirm that it is a fungus; then treat it with Miconazole cream twice daily for 6 weeks.
