Hello,

I'd like to get a professional advice if possible. A 12 y/o boy got this issue several months, if not a year, ago. It looks like a few quarter-size spots on the knee. Using moisturizing cream can help, but not very significantly. Using a cream with antibiotics helps much more, but once we stop using it the spots return back. The spots don’t spread, they are more or less static, but can increase or decrease depending on the cream.

What that can be, some kind of fungus? What should we use to get rid of them?

Thanks,
Dimi

It is difficult to make a diagnosis just from photos, it can be several things and should be evaluated by a dermatologist.

1. psoriasis
2. Molluscum contagiosum a viral infection
3. unlikely place for a fungal infection, but not impossible

Hey Dimi,

Here is the article that you will need to read:



By PATRICIA ANSTETT |FILED UNDER - Life / Health | 9:58 AM, Jun. 11, 2011

Some 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis, a chronic, relapsing disease that causes rashes and painful inflamed thick, scaly skin patches called plaques, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation.
